Bayleigh Fraser: “I wrote this on the eve of Independence Day. I left the United States to come to Canada four years ago, and, though I love my country deeply, though I miss my home, the issues it’s facing are making me angry as of late. So I thought I’d try to write something a little humorous. Perhaps a little dark.” (website)
