RIP Gord

RIP Gord Downie

The Canadian identity is so nebulous but you turned those clouds into concrete ones and zeros, analog when live.
I came to the Hip naturaly
about ten years
and I have to admit
to some extent
I played them out
in totality
the Guess Who, Drake
and Gordon Lightfoot
the Hip
are now
Canada Band

I grew up a stones throw from
Bobcaygen and played hockey there
a hundred times
The Hip captured
the trapper genius
of small places
that are the 
of Canada life
