Dear Father Tony,
Please hear my plea,
To revive the economy
Try that city key
Tho of you and me
Dey making bobolee
And the poor already
Heading to vagrancy
Save this country
We call La Trinity

 

 I may call you that, Dear Father Tony, may I not, although we is not family, we are still part of the Trini famalee and the human famalee, part of the same national journey on the same ship, and I was part of your empire on the media side for most of me journalistic life and that was how some referred to you in revered whispers though others had less reverent terms; and it may be said, ’twas in your empire whence I cut meh journalistic tooth and whence my career was birthed and so you really are meh father in some sense of the word, eh Tony!

Ressurected bones of St Joseph’s ghosts, skeletons in the closet etc – a true E-Divali-Halloween Doomsday story

Posted on

It might sound like bone-rattling, nerve wracking, wake-up call, but St Joseph is NOT the First Capital of Trinidad, dear candidates, campaigners and voters in Monday’s by-election in the constituency of St Joseph.

Indeed, if one were to listen to the chatter of the bones in the cemeteries in St Joseph (as one would from the bones under the eternally-under-renovation historic Red House Parliament building or the bones of Banwari (Wo)man secluded in another dark, unlit, place), one would hear a much different story to that written in our history books and from what’s falling out the mouths of campaigners.


Right to Recall
Newsflash! the Pitch Lake was NOT discovered by one Sir Walter Raleigh! Are tourism officials scrambling now to vote for the Right of Recall of its brochures and signs marking these sites; signage like the one featured in this page in LiTTscapes – Landscapes of Fiction of Trinidad and Tobago with that recurring misinformation? So as you clean graves of dear ones, and light candles for the dearly departed in this historic district this La 
Toussaint (word Fr origin, meaning All Saints), and celebrate the lights of enlightenment of Divali deeyas this weekend, remember that the origins of La Toussaint also predates Christianity, with which it is now associated. It may be, as old as, one might say, the true discoverers of the Pitch Lake itself!

If this by-election brings anything to St Joseph and indeed the country, O ye soon-to-be winner and losers, let it be a wholesome restoration of our history as it ought to be told, and rewriting of our history that is now being taught in schools and touted on political platforms and from the mountaintops once claimed by conquerors… 
Or, listen to the bones…Those who do not remember the past are DOOMED, to repeat it…
Trick or treat, An enlightened Divali to all. More….
