Our visit with Phil continues

I am so grateful that Phil has decided to continue his visit with here on the Maynely a Mystery blog. Without another word from me, here is another treasure from Phil Hindmarch's pen...

Canada has got it all,
Eden's plenty 'ere the Fall.
Mountains, forests, lakes and streams,
Ocean shores and land that seems
To stretch forever east and west,
Scenic wonders Heaven blessed,
Beaver, moose, and polar bear,
Silver, gold and oil to spare.
We assume this treasure chest
Is due to holy righteousness.
In previous life we were so good,
God gave us his best neighborhood.
He threw in a health-care plan,
UI, welfare, Petrocan
And to top our legacy,
He awarded us the CBC!
Still we carp and moan and whine,
Ungrateful for our gifts divine.
We can't even summon thanks
For our friend and neighbour Yanks.
We scorn their taste and wild excess,
While envy drips for their success.
We can't even let them be
For instead of 'zed' saying 'zee'!
