You’re Never Too Old To Skate, Old Man

a poem in honour of the Prime Minister’s book on hockey

Prime Minister Stephen  Harper

Prime Minister Stephen Harper

You’re never too old to skate, old man
Unless your blood curdles cold as ice
Like any law, all it takes is a plan.

A hockey rink remains an open span
Waiting for you and your blades to slice
You’re never too old to skate, old man.

On your cereal add a sprinkle of bran
That is my constitutional advice
Like any law, all it takes is a plan.

With a few strides you’ll glide like Peter Pan
With practice you’ll finesse quite nice
You’re never too old to skate, old man.

RE: Hockey. Canada hasn’t yet imposed a ban
Because every action carries a price
Like any law, all it takes is a plan.

So get off your butt monsieur, if you can
Too much Parliamentary sitting is a vice
You’re never too old to skate, old man
Like any law, all it takes is a plan.
