Whose hammer is that? I think I know.
Its owner is quite happy though.
Full of joy like a vivid rainbow,
I watch him laugh. I cry hello.
He gives his hammer a shake,
And laughs until her belly aches.
The only other sound’s the break,
Of distant waves and birds awake.
The hammer is dry, secret and deep,

After cake and lots of sleep.
Sweet dreams come to him cheap.
He rises from his gentle bed,
With thoughts of kittens in his head,
He eats his jam with lots of bread. …

The girl screamed again as the creature closed in. Her eyes were wide as the beast grew closer. The beast closed in, its teeth glinting in the flickering candlelight.
“Don’t you dare…
Steve leaned against the cold wall of the dark alleyway, taking a long drag from his cigarette. Foam curled around the mouth of his coffee cup.

Canadian Residential schools are a dark stain on Canada’s history. The memory of the Canadian Government's treatment of First Nation people is fresh in many people's minds. Remember that the last Residential School in Canada finally closed just in 1996, there are young people — today — that have been personally affected by the abuse suffered in the Canadian Residential Schools.
While the abuse suffered by First Nation’s children at the hands of the federally funded schools is now coming to light, it is not as well known outside of Canada exactly what the Residential Schools actually were.
