Timmie's: Ode to A Canadian Icon
Tim and Jim one day cavortin’
Started Inc., they called Tim Horton’s
The first Tim Horton’s donut store
Opened up in ‘64
They also did serve up some burgers
Then Tim and Ron, well they did merger
Poor Tim he died in ‘67
And I am sure he watched from Heaven
As Ron grew fast his namesake shop
He grew and grew, he could not stop!
Until the countryside would go nuts
For his coffee and his donuts!
And that is how it came to be
That Timmie’s entered history
Cut ahead some 60 years
And we’ve shed us some fresh-brewed tears
No longer full Canadian
Not fresh-baked goods, since way back when
It’s been real hard on coffee-perkers
To pay them fairly, all these workers
And franchisees will fight HQ
As companies are wont to do…
But worry not, the light won’t dim
We still have prized “Roll Up The Rim”!
So visit shops across the nation
To help out Hortons’ kid’s foundation
Judge not too harsh for what it lacks
Just dig it for convenient snacks!
All times of day a cup awaits
And that’s what makes our Timmie’s great!
