- In response to "From Colony to Nation" by Irving Layton

A dull people,
I think not.

A boring people,
Says Irving Layton.

We are not boring or dull,
But we are a mosaic.

A people of many
Colors and shapes.

These coloured shapes alone,
Are nothing but meaningless blobs.

But as these blobs come together,
A beautiful picture is formed.

Now, instead of blobs of color,
We are different races.

As these races merge together,
A whole new country forms.

And if you think this mosaic in life,
is dull and boring

All I can say is,
I disagree.
