THIRD PRIZE (Poetry) SOCIETY - WHAT GIVES? by Nancy Sanders It is 7:00 a.m. and a Canadian groans as he crawls out from under his electric blanket. It is 7:00 a.m. and a Chinese has been up since 3:00 working in the rice paddie s. It is 8:00 a.m. and a pampered brat is screaming because he hates porridge. It is 8:00 a.m. and a child in India is screaming too — he is dying of malnutrition. 9:00 a.m. — the school bell is ringing. Children complain that they hate sitting still. In Hong Kong — the same time, a boy is shining shoes to earn enough to live on. At 4:00 p.m. a spike-heeled mother drags her child, squealing and kicking to the dentist ' s office. In Spain a parent purposely maims his child so that he can go out and beg. On Friday night a teenager frets because she has nothing to wear on a date. In India three women share one sari. In a western city white-haired councilmen frown gravely because they have more garbage than the incinerators can cope with. In India men pray for enough sustenance to keep them alive. Canadians view Expo and marvel at its achievements. A black nurse watches her child die of a ' crippling disease and stoically wipes the tears from her face. A Canadian earns his living as a hairdresser. A northern Eskimo has never used a toothbrush. Parents spend hundreds of dollars on ballet lessons for their daughter. A nude Aborigine is doing a ritual rain dance. A horseman takes his immaculate horse to a show in an air-conditioned trailer. A small donkey is the only means of transportation for a family in Ceylon. 38

SECOND PR IZE (Poetry) PRIDE by Susan Mitchell Wounded, crawling like the stricken prey To hide himself and hidden, to lie forever In uncaptured peace but dead. When he lived, he knew no bounds: The world was his; he came And went like the four winds; He ran and sported with the other creatures of the mind Until that final race, when matched by some unencountered being. He turned and ran. Dodging, fleeing, seeking, the hunter ' s arrow Found him but on he fled, stumbling Over footfalls of existence To drop exhausted, bleeding at the threshold of despair In a last desperate effort to hide. That no one should say Love had conquered Pride. DAWN by Pam Taraday The world is very friendly; or do I face a cry Alone in the empty darkness; or was it a sigh That penetrates the soul; or could it be a tear So soft that no one knows the pain; or was it fear And hate, that no one understands? The world is full of grief Not just to some, but to everyone, beyond belief. The world is very friendly; or do we face a cry Together in the golden dawning; or was it a sigh Deep within the heart of joy and fulfilment; or could it be a tear Of happiness amid wonder; or was it fear Or love, that few men find? The world is very kind Not just to some, but to everyone, to all mankind. 37

A businessman can ' t decide what colour of sports car he should buy this year. A Colombian peasant hopes he can afford a patch for his bicycle tire. A little girl wears a pink chiffon dress and patent leather shoes to a birthday party. They were made in Japan by skinny, barefoot men in ragged trousers. A little boy is given an expensive new fishing pole as a toy. Another little boy shares a bamboo stick to catch fish to keep his family alive. In a city store a woman buys shoes handmade in Italy. The man who made them hasn ' t enough leather to put shoes on the feet of his own children. In Canada a woman drives ten miles twice a week to exercise at Vic Tanny ' s. In Brazil another woman walks that far every day to work in a factory. A young Victorian lady sends a perfumed letter to her lover. A lady in Greece can ' t read or write. I don ' t have time to be confused, I ' m too busy just trying to figure out what ' s going on around here! SO BE IT by Christine Kilgour I should live to see the day, I said to my Ed- die when we were watching television, I should live to see the day that something good happens. The same thing every day. Nag, nag, nag. That ' s all I ever hear from that bum downstairs; he asks for the rent one more time this week and so help me Eddie I ' ll go out of my mind. We pay when we got the mon- ey but we just hit a rough time now; can ' t he understand? My God in heaven, Eddie, I said, you gotta get work. You want your kid to grow up to be someone who ' s ashamed of his papa, eh? I mean, you proud of yourself Eddie Zimmerman? We got a good kid, Eddie, and I wanta give him half a chance like I never had. Listen, Eddie, you want I should beg on my knees? Do you think he heard a word I said? No. Sometimes I think he ' s either got no ears or else he ' s just plain stupid, because nothing I do or say ever gets through to him. I wonder why I ever married him! 39
