Mashramani - Poem by CHERYL winter

Every year in the month of February,
Guyana celebrates Mashramani;
Mash showcases our Guyanese culture,
Including our art, our craft and our literature.
Some of us play the steel pans,
Some flounce in the masquerade bands;
Some display beautiful costumes in the floats,
Some enjoy excursions on the ferry boats.
Some participate in poetry and dramatic presentations,
Some dance or sing in calypso competitions;
Some grace the cat-walk with their modelling;
Some display their skills in gymnastics and tumbling.
As Guyanese we have to show love for our country;
We all should celebrate Mashramani!
mash is not about race and religion!
It's a Guyanese festive occasion!
So..come join with me
And let's have a Happy Mashramani
