Show me what you do with that man of yours.

That's what the bwa said

when he finally noticed my ring .

Barbados boy

asked me

 if i'd ever heard of  his country

That spoke volumes.

So did he.

lilting island chatter

constant voiceover

beneath the speaker

I just wanted to tell him to

SHUT UP

 stop runnin' that island rap on me

that- i just won't stop talkin'

water torture

some of these little street boys have.

Sadly

they start practicing it way too young

and

just can't give it up.

 

 

I didn't give anything up

either.
