A Jamaican Response - Poem by Buxton Shippy

Every time me walk by you smile
What so funny bout me, eh?
Dutty gully cover me face?
You see rough road
Run through me?
You smile first
And when me smile back,
You vex.

I wouldn't call you ugly
If you didn't smile at me like that
I wouldn't call you buttu,
Cause you frown in me face.

Every time me walk by you smile
Like me no somebody pickney.
You think you better than me?
Cause you live uptown
And drive all around?
Me have better clothes a yard
And have a car parked there to.
So next time
When you feel to smile at me,
That way,
Check me place.
