Poem: A Statement of Apology from the Colonial Government

Dear First Nations,
We apologize for the inconvenience the delay in our response has caused,
Please be informed that we are working tirelessly to maintain settler colonialism,
The delay in our response is due to our swift response in maintaining violent occupation of your homelands,
Please be advised that if you don’t hear from us in a timely manner you are welcome to leave us a message,
On one of our many of our hotlines,
We will respond to your message at our earliest convenience,
Which means we won’t really be responding,
But routing your call to a different department,
In which the call may be dropped,
Or you may have a wait time of 600 years,
Again we apologize for any inconvenience that we have caused,
You are welcome to reach out to us as we work to improve our colonial system on your lands.
