History's Sad Song
History's Sad Song (Revised)

throughout my life
I've heard many a sad song
relating to the lyrics
that seemed to play too long

by the bloodlust of so many

Jamaica Jubilee Years

Remember it just like yesterday 
'Twas the sixth of August, independence day
Manley called the election, Busta took the drive
New nation at UN assembly, Jamaica arrived

Remission (In Memory of William Watt).
Birth begins the tragedy in us. Life's
First sound is a blank scream
Against sorrow's hidden portends of strifes
All we know are mirages and dream.

Mother took the news staring at the sky
She must have cried inside
For I...

I raced through my chores, braided my hair in cornrows
Meticulously washed my body, daub the back of my ears

To run with glee and meet with fear horsehead,
