(Order,order!)Sir, the reason I pulled you over is for "six syllables in a seven syllable line."  I'm giving you a warning ...

Beautiful sentiment, BTW.

I'd say "smile" can be heard as two syllables.

I'd be willing to give the benefit of the doubt if the poster was from the American South ("smi-ull"), but South Canada doesn't count.

Easy fix - change it from 'smile' to "big smile' and you are out of the difficulty altogether.

I rushed to Google...

Answer: just one syllable

Well, that’s news to me!

 

Line two is changed to:

”His smile and well-timed antics”

There, that should do it!

Hey, wait a minute...

Did you say....”South Canada?”

What the hell is that?

 

Almost all Canucks

Reside in “South Canada”

But man, it is wide!

And yet, sleepless bugs,

Drawn to the flames of Haiku,

Even at late hours.

1) Bravo for that second line; the rhythm is perfect!

2) Old orange hair maybe wasn't wrong.

1) Thanks!  2) The third line should have the accent on the last word to bring home the poor showing "Donald's drug"  (I strongly suspect they gave him placebos for a few weeks) is making among researchers :)

Numbers, more numbers

Everything is now numbers

Where are the humans?

 

I'm not a number

I am a human being

(Cheap philosophy)

That's either an homage to The Prisoner or to the Moody Blues' "Threshold of a Dream". 

BTW, I expected you to get my "half-fast" reference, but in these troubled times ... (Sigh...)
