Curry Be Good - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Me so long wanting curry soup.
(Him so long wanting curry soup)
Me so long want it thick to scoop.
(Him so long want it thick to scoop)
Loving it with coconut bread.
mmm
Munching on it even in bed.
mmm
Me pick out the bones of goat.
And,
Loaded with the beans I love the most.

Me cannot sleep or nod.
The curry be good the curry be good.
Me cannot sleep or come to a nod.
The curry be good.
(Good)
The curry be good.
(Good)
The curry be good.
(Good)
The curry be good the curry be good.
