Holy.... (May 29, 2016)

In stunned disbelief
The news rolls
Over me
Like a tsunami
From Vancouver.

Upon hearing
The Conservative Party
Of Canada
Has approved
Same sex marriages.

Thus
Has joined
The 21th century
At their policy convention
With the rest
Of the world.

Although
I wonder
If someone had spiked
Whatever
The delegates were drinking
Before the vote. 

Else
Had created
The world's biggest bong
For the more conservative
Evangelical members.

Stopping them
From fracturing
The "Right"
Again.

As happened
During the late 1980s
With the formation
Of the Reform Party
From the Progressive Conservatives.

Just hope
No delegates sue
The party
For it's whiplash change
Over this sudden political
Turnabout.

Author's note: Never thought, the Conservative Party of Canada, would actually amend their policy platform to support same sex marriages, given their vocal and religious protest against. Wonder, will they also change, their transphobic attitude that kill the last attempt to protect Trans' rights, under the Canadian constitution, by supporting the changes, to the Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms, by specifically making it a hate crime, to knowingly attack and hurt a  trans-person. Wish, I could ask this, but, future gazing, isn't one of my powers.
