This poem is interesting in being one of only four poems by three female poets included in FR Scott and AJM Smith’s The Blasted Pine: An Anthology of Satire, Invective, and Disrespectful Verse Chiefly by Canadian Writers (Toronto: Macmillan, 1957). The other three are “Election Day” and “”Landlady,” by PK Page, and “The Hadleyburg Home Guard,” by Marjorie McKenzie. The version below is the original publication in Poetry.
