Louis Riel: Playing Insanity
It would be easy for me to-day
to play insanity,
with my mind out of its ordinary condition
Although a man,
I am helpless before this court,
in the Dominion of Canada
and in this world
Trying to play the role of insane,
I became what doctors believed to be insane
I believed for years I had a mission
I could see something into the future
Mr. Nolin had a noise in his bowels
I told him it meant something
I said, Do you hear?
There will be trouble in the North-West
I have been in an asylum
The lunatic asylum
of my good friend ...
