It may be
temporary, who knows? But
Who or what stole Canada's Golden Disk?
Replacing it with a bloodshot eye,

But who or what destroyed Canada's Wild,
Magnificent to view and the wild life too.

I perceive a unique, distant loving relationship, a
Poetic licence maybe but Britains and Canadians
Tea and maple syrup with the ability to smile and
