Yard Talk-3


Word soun belch inna dis ya time ya
Wid riddim ridin high
Higher dan di light at noon
Word soun kick di hunga
Boilin inna pot a dub
A royal dub, dubbin out injustice
Dubbin in flava.

Who no know wa a gawn?
Who no know popoganda?
Havin di people dem flusta
Dem caa even musta
Di trute fi tell
Hope di people wise-up
An si dem tricks
War widout a cause is a blunda
Use di money fi aliviate hunga
Inna dis ya time ya.

Word soun triumph
So let dem clap
Claptrap an tek kick-back
Much as dem want
Fa fi dem soun empty
Wid no riddim
Wid no dub
Dubbin wise.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
