Canada is where franchise miracles happen

Is all darkness in his heart,
But for the glow of her nightgown,
Through the dark.

Everything has a cost, though.

The Hard Canadian, Gord Downie and the Country of Miracles

The Hard Canadian
He don’t have much to say
But he hurts your feelings
Almost every single day.
Takes a puff-a-nothin,
Picks something from his tongue,
He’s the Hard Canadian.

The Hard Canadian
Doesn’t care what you do.
The Hard Canadian
Don’t give a damn about you.
What’s a windswept face,
The elusive presence of the sun,
To the Hard Canadian?

The Hard Canadian
Is all darkness in his heart
But for the glow of her nightgown
Through the dark.
Yeah, but then he blurs the image,
Drags his brush through the wet pigment,
Cause he’s the Hard Canadian.

His berating heart,
Grown thorny with sin and oh the silences,
He don’t listen to them.
Whether he’s just mean or willfully dense, he says,
‘From life nothing; to death nothing.’

The hard Canadian
Is what he throws away
And he hurt her feelings
Almost every single day.
Now he takes a shot of nothing,
Stares off remembering someone.

That’s the hard Canadian.
That’s the hard Canadian.
He’s the hard Canadian.

    Looking for miracles in Ontario, where brave-hearted officials are still tring to give franchisees a better break in terms of educating them to the hard realities of buying ANY franchise. This in itself is a miracle and I have no doubt that Les Stewart, in part, inspired this miracle.

    Would that we have a miracle in the United States and some members of the media and some elected representatives in the Congress would fix the malicious flaw in the FTC’s Rule governing the sale of franchises to my fellow countrymen.

    Where are the voices for JUSTICE? New voices come on line like but the ugly status quo and the special interests drown out the protests of those who try to raise their voices against greed and injustice!
