Entry in the Poetry Face-off

Wow! CBC is hosting it's annual Poetry Face-off and today they played my entry.  

I wish I could have heard it - I didn't even know they had played it until Anthony brought it to my attention by leaving a comment on my last entry.  

The theme was "The Outdoors".  At his request (and I hope I'm not breaking any CBC contest rules), here is the poem...
I travelled o'er five thousand miles
To see "The Land that God Forgot".
The Yukon and the Great Outdoors
Are wilder than I ever thought,
And that is why I'm camping in
the Wal-mart parking lot.
