  1. The impact will not endure

    of that you can be sure

    and conquest is not my

    quest

    much less my address. or redress:

    so that there then

    NOW

    you may begin to see

    I don't fly by doctrines

    instead we

    Nations of Indigenous Peoples

    Are, have been, will permanently be-

    reality
