In Canada, eh?

Sybille Forster-Rentmeister

I do not know, but have you heard,
It seems to be quite true:
In Canada we do not work
Like folks in other countries do.
Fifty % are too young or too old,
For others it is too hot or too cold.
So at any given time,
We think its safe to say,
25% do work sublime
While the rest of us go play.
And if itís true and really that,
We all must try to worry:
20% are government folk,
We know they never hurry.
That means that itís just 5%
Which carry our nation,
I dare say that the concept
Bares some contemplation!
