Ah said it before dat it sounds like super progressive having thirty-thousand Lap Tops circulating among our student population; my question is, how are we going to relate all dis Lap Top Rev-all-yuh-shun wid âplanting ah cocoa tree or banana, baiting ah hook and catch ah fish, fitting ah front door lock to keep out de robbersâ; tell me who is going to build de houses, repair de fridge or TV, better still who will repair de very Lap Tops? Trust me, we have thousand ah Lap Tops, we will have Lap Tops by de hundreds damaged and thrown in ah corner; and dis is not wishing bad. Nuff ah Dat!
IS GUARD-HAVE-HE COMING TO SVG?
Meking friends, establishing diplomatic relations wid oppressive regimes headed by wicked dictators, human rights violators etc, just because yuh could get ah football field or ah few scholarships, is not worth de ties. Is like yuh daughter dating fellars who promising to repair de house roof; help pay de lickle brother school fees, pay foh granny medication etc; yuh now pride yu-self yuh daughter doing well, truth is, she is ah pass-de-truth! And dat is how SVG is beginning to look. Ah disaster hits us, not to worry, our Bad Guy brothers (not Tie One) come to our rescue and we proud. Please tell me, when will we regain our dignity and be ah proud earner again?
Ah gone again.
