NOTE: 2021 03 22 15H01 EST Capitale-Nationale? -
- had a discussion with a friend about this Capitale-Nationale business, who surprisingly went into the spiel about our French "nation", our pride, our roots, as if there was no political sentiment to what he was telling me, and as if I wasn't French. I don't care about the political side of things. Separatist camp or the others. I was referring to the actual meaning of words... "National" belongs to country, not province, so it's just incorrect to say otherwise? ...
When you enter the city of Québec
There are road signs welcoming
Drivers into the Capitale-Nationale.
When you fill out a form online
And need to select your region
The only choice is Capitale-Nationale.
When you receive mail brochures
Espousing the beauties of my city
The official logo is Capitale-Nationale.
It may not be very Québécois
To say this, but has everyone
Fallen onto their heads, or what?
Québec city is NOT the capitale nationale!
The national capital has always been Ottawa!
So annoying all of this sanctioned nonsense.
When I object, I'm promptly put in my place,
And explained about our French nation,
As if I'm not from the French nation...
Born and raised here; my last name wears an accent aigu;
I started learning English when I was twelve.
Sure, I wouldn't understand about all that.
It's just that, dans les faits, irrefutable ones,
Our capital has never been the national capital.
Last I've ever known, Québec is part of Canada,
And Québec city is just the capital of the PROVINCE.
It gets on my nerves when the untrue's so nonchalantly made
Into every day normal as if it was anything close to truth.
