Poetic licence 

To The Coast,

The Coast is the paper I read the most.

The Herald, the Globe, the Daily News, too,

Holler for attention, but it's not their due.

For I am a Coast fan—it grew by the years,

HRM blues from bars to the beers; 

From columns that inform to those for a laugh,

The Coast is just right to read in the bath...

So HRM is now The Big Apple for me,

And when friends in town visit and I play the host,

I find arts, entertainment and culture to boast—

All sandwiched twixt pages of Halifax's most

informed little paper—You know it, The Coast!
