It’s free
Get It magazine
Exclaims someone nonplussed at my wanting it

(no culture
of entitlement
like we see
in places)

It’s free
So I can take it
For nothing

(do I have
an agenda
hidden under)

Actually not
For nothing
But for their
GET Innovative feature
On a young scientist

A young scientist
A grade nine girl
Winning a gold medal
And a special award

Actually not
For nothing
Though I learn
About her
For free

Not for nothing

I poke fun at a colleague in the local neighbourhood who showed me the “Young scientist wins gold!” GET Innovative feature in the “Get It” magazine (Volume 9 Issue 1 February 2015).

No doubt, I had a hoary old Joni Mitchell ditty in my head as well!
