austerity budget

All Hands On Deck

After the Austerity Budget is drummed in

the call to assemble resounds

all over the Alberta ship—-

“All hands on deck,

all hands on deck.

We are in for a blow.

Lash the riggings.

Lower the sails.

Clear the masts.

Avast  ye  swabs,

batten down the hatches,

 make ready the pumps.

For Heaven’s sake

pass the grog!”
