Calavera Time!

A 2016 Calavera to Canadians, especially Vancouverites! (Read here a previous one)

catrina-2016

Done by my Muñequito! Very cool, isn’t it?

 

The glamorous skinny lady

is back again,

wearing yoga leggings

she is ready to make some friends.

 

She is quite impressed

with our fashionable leaders,

specially the hair style

of our cool Prime Minister

 

This season however,

she said to herself

I better stay longer, 

if I want to take a few Vancouverites away.

 

So our lady in black

visited some neighbourhoods,

she decided to put an offer

despite the hipster neighbours.

 

But La Catrina was born in Mexico

which makes her a foreign buyer

She claimed to be universal

but the real state lady didn’t buy it.

 

Unable to afford a house

now La Catrina is empty handed

because the real state lady demanded

over a million dollars in fees and taxes.

 

Sadden by her options

La Catrina headed back to Mexico

where nobody is uncompassionate

about the real state market!
