Poem today- Nonsense

Nonsense

I am reading about the start of the others coming to Canada

after our Native brothers and sisters were already here, and I too,

I too come from one of the others.

 

Could I wish that I was not?

The ideas they said, the things they did, forcing upon them Jesus Christ.

The more I think about it,

the more dizzy I feel.

 

Dizzy with confusion about everything we have known.

How we did not live in parallel with the animals,

claimed we were the master of all.

 

Nonsense.
