Vancouver – Mr. Unknown


By Mr. Unknown

Lights are seen from afar

Canada’s third-largest city

Tall buildings loom

Pollution is a pity

Vancouver the city

Quite different from the island

Apartments replace trees

Expensive to live

Outer Vancouver includes

Coquitlam, Richmond and Surrey

Burnaby, White Rock, Delta

New Westminster, Maple Ridge and Langley

Yaletown, Granville Island

North Vancouver and Gastown

Each contributing to the name

Of Vancouver who was crowned

The man who “discovered” this land

These days we all frown

Downtown feels dark

Sunlight blocked by towers

Stores, offices and condos

Traffic slows by the hour

Ferries bring us here

To the big metro place

Swartz Bay to Tsawassen

Duke Point to Horseshoe Bay

Vancouver is a fun visit

For a day or two

But soon you may find

This escape is too much for me or you

Come see its landmarks

Come see its city views

Come Island people to Vancouver

Modern and new
