Belize’s Agrarian Revolution

By Abdulmajeed K Nunez

BGYEA Plant the Corn Program
The Maya Winning their Rights to land
The Valley of Peace mediation
Belizeans are developing and aggressive interest in acquiring lands
Is all of great concern to Belmopan
They know the history of Latin America and the Caribbean
So the injunction is high stakes manipulation
I think it high time the PM hands in his resignation
Call new elections Mist Man!

Seven percent of the populace owns 90 percent of all the country’s land
This was also the similitude of Mexico in 1913 to 1931
That caused the agrarian revolution
Belize government inevitably has to make better provisions
To provide the layman with a titled land
The longer government stalls there will be confrontation
Government has to be careful how they play this one
Balancing appeasing big corporations
With Belize’s 5,634,800 acres of land
A majority of which is in foreign hands

Big business corporations are doing their own mobilization
Having lost confidence in this Barrow administration
They are buying out key politicians
The same thing happened to Theordora Aranda and Phillip Goldson
Is about to happen to Barrow too
Your own supporters are about to replace you
They are readying themselves for early election
So I can see why the boys in Belmopan are grabbing so much land
Hustling to send their children and family to get an education
Boxing out the average Belizeans

Belize has more land than people
Better land distribution will make people comfortable
There is no need for Belizean to be getting leases, give the people a title
But the people are not a priority
That’s the reason the baboons and jaguars have parks and sanctuary
They have sold out our cayes
They are killing the manatees
Libya, Grenada, Mexico, Salvador, Brazil, Honduras, Nicaragua
Venezuela and even Cuba
Have had agrarian reform, Mister Prime Minista
It’s high time Belizean fala
We need a revolution in agriculture

Grenada just passed legislation supporting small farmers
Making provisions to increase their quotas
Belize needs to create industries with the oil
Why are we importing tar, plastics and jet fuel?
When these are by products of oil, we need to manage it well
Belizeans should not be paying so much for fuel
Gaddafi used the oil to transform a desert into Libya’s second largest agriculture sector
Instead we produce reports talking rass bout our land not being arable
Fool di talk but Belizean no simple!
