Maid's letter was one of a bunch of letters from a school in Hamilton, Ontario. Maid had just moved to Hamilton from Toronto and she wanted to go back. Poems to kids at Queen Victoria School, Ontario, Canada

Now I live in Hamilton,
And that is where
My home is in;
Except that where
I want to go
Is back and live
In Toronto.
My mom and dad
Say, “Stay right here.”,
And this is where
I’ll stay, I fear.
And that is why
I’m staying in,
The yucky town
Of Hamilton.
