Tek mi Picha

*Tek mi Picha*

by Sheryl Stark

Strong winds push against my face
Carrying mist of salty tales
Boats lay silent
Waiting for another day
As the trees dance
To the rhythm of the breeze
Water splashes around my feet
The picturesque land
Beckons me
To freeze in time
Mother Nature‘s design
Daughter, Daughter
Tek mi Picha
 
In the distance
The waves wrap
Around their tiny waists
As big grins
Shine from each small face
A carefree moment
I remember as a youth
Here they come running
As they make their debut
Pushing waves out of their way
As their voices strain
Against the musical waves
Miss, Miss
Tek mi Picha
 
They wear masks of
Black volcanic sand
As I freeze nature and man
The water laps at our feet
Reminding us of peace
When we walk the beach
Sea, wind, trees, and boys
Playing together as one
Unified and strong
With the mighty wind
They scream
With the mighty sea
They sing
Daughter, Daughter
Miss, Miss
Tek mi Picha

Field of Dreams


woJ

Ganja euphoria

Many of us used to scoff when Rasta tek

A puff a de good green stuff, while encouraging

Us to be religious, but back den government

Seh Rasta nuh have sense, so dem dismiss

Argument dat ganja is a religious sacrament

Babylon get scurrilous and put rasta inna

Han’ cuff fi position of de good green stuff

~~~~~~~~

All of a sudden everybody a attend de wedding

De hot topic in de US, Caribbean and odda tropics, dem mus hav it dis stimulant,

Criticised, ostracised, stigmatised and demonised

Rasta and many others penalised

Now dem wah decriminalised

But de profits is dem main prize

All dem a discuss head a government still fraid fi publicly tek a puff a de good green stuff

~~~~~~~~

Pandemonium, farma abandon scallion and onion

A pure ganja dem wah pon de lan’ fi mek money from

Some a cuss, some a rush fi put dem han pon ganja fuss

But dem still naaw discuss de benefit of a puff,

Dem only wah mek money nuff nuff

By pretending dat a dem si ganja fuss

Dem a de reincarnation of Christopher Columbus
