Boxing and wrestling really getting popular in this country. Of course boxing was popular before but it die down when de local boxers could get proper thing to eat. Dem should eat cassava and eddo and things like that but all of a sudden KFC come and dem boxers decide that dem gun only eat fry chicken.
Well that was a big problem because all de local boxers suddenly lack stamina. Dem boys seh that is that thing mek Gwen de woman boxer lose when she meet Laila Ali. De fuss time Gwen claim how dem put thing in she drink. Well de second time was wuss because while she was here eating chicken from KFC, Demico, Royal Castle, and Popeye’s, Laila was training like mad.
Before that fight when Gwen beat de white woman from Texas, she tell de world is dasheen and cassava put power in she hand. She forget that.
But is de wrestling that get very popular. Imagine teachers in school tackling students and dem ain’t got any discrimination. One teacher from Enmore grab a boy and hang he upside down outside a window. Well if was a gyal imagine de scene, but dem boys seh that de teachers at Enmore got one treatment fuh boys and another fuh dem gyal.
In de same way de government got a special programme fuh certain people. De Finance Minister announce that de government spending couple million dollar well fuh deworm people.
Dem boys seh that is about time because wid times suh hard and wid people having worms, dem gun want to eat too much. De government really want to cramp people appetite, hence de deworming programme. But dem boys want to know wha gun happen to dem people who gat snakes because some of dem does eat like if dem ain’t got tomorrow.
But dem have wicked people. One group decide that de money is too much when all de government got to do is buy couple gallon oil paint and some bilious wash tablets. That can’t cost more than couple thousand dollars. That is wha dem boys seh.
And talking bout deworming. De government also moving to cripple dem Customs officer. One officer join de wuk in December and by de end of January he was driving a car and he had two minibus.
Another one stop cooking home and everyday he having lunch at Pegasus. But de best of dem was de person who collect all dem empty barrel that come in pun de wharf and build a house at Pradoville. Is a big house and it fancy. This person is not a Customs officer suh Bharrat ain’t conducting an investigation.
But dem boys seh that Bharrat should investigate all of dem and it could be that he doing just that because he setting up some Integrity Commission that forcing dem to declare all that dem got. When dem do that Bharrat gun decide if de money he paying dem could give dem all that they have.
And dem boys notice how de Privatisation man get quiet. One man ask if he sick or he get hoarse. Dem see a man wid de same name get trouble in de States and de police got he tight. De also got another brother and dem boys want to know if de Privatisation man still crying.
He, too, can really eat suh he might be a candidate fuh de deworming programme but Bharrat got to guard against global warming because if de man tek de programme is nuff gas gun be released, plus the solid waste that would cause problem fuh de solid waste disposal programme.
Bharrat got to be very careful.
Talk half. Lef half.
