When you poor you don’t have no family. Not even you schoolmates does talk to you. But as soon as you put you hand pun money, like if you win de lottery, all of a sudden family you didn’t know you had does tun up.
How dem does find wheh you live is a mystery, and dem who can’t find wheh you live does find you anywhere you deh. De odda day dem boys was talking bout how nuff days Guyana studying wheh she gun get money to pay some of de bills.
One Prime Minister even cuss Jagdeo, because everywhere he go, Jagdeo use to walk wid he begging bowl. De man above smile pun Guyana.

Is not only Guyanese who lef and go away since Noah was building de ark, people coming from dem islands. Was a time when Guyanese go to a country like Barbados dem had to sit on de bench and get put on de next plane back to Guyana. Trinidad was de same thing.
