The poem(s) are below...




Jamaica, The flag, gold, black and green,

Jamaica, The island, so many want to see,

Jamaica, The people, so friendly, so warm,

Just the perfect home, away from your home,

Jamaica, A sound education is a must,

Every child must learn, The main thrust,

Jamaica, The land of the agriculture plan,

Banana, sweet potato, cassava and yam,

Jamaica, home of the fastest people of all time,

Usain, Shelly Ann, Yohan, best of the kind,

Jamaica, Where the music makes you really want to sing,

Jamaica, The food, the fruits, bite into everything,

Jamaica, The place, you get great sunshine and rain,

Bizzy Tea to ease your aches and pains,

Jamaicas' Oliver, Ity and Fancy Cat,

Give us sweet laughter to remove all that,

That hissing sound, when there's no job around,

Turn the tv on, Is it time now?

Jamaica, sometimes the road is long and ruff,

We will persevere, We'll strive to be tuff,

Confident, The Almighty, shows us what to do,

Thankful for the positives that help us go through,

We'll always love you!
