Belize's Underdevelopment

By Abdulmajeed K Nunez

The enemies amongst us is crafty
The enemy has made themselves our deity
They even gave us ethnicity
To keep us divided and in constant rivalry
They even placed us strategically
In different parts of the country
They even denied us accessibility
If it was not for cross country
Which not a sport; initially they were brave riders who dared to travel the country
We should also be grateful for Hurricane Hattie
For opening up our country
We need to acquaint ourselves with our own history

When will Diasporans realize
That they are being victimized
For fear that they will open their people’s eyes
The same way the Garinagu were ostracized and victimized
The British were afraid they and the Creoles would organize
Diasporans can see through the lies
Those politicians prophesied
Whilst doing the works of those they vilify
Their citizens they victimize and ostracize
Casting them aside
Their own self interest they prioritize

Diasporans have analyzed and can’t be caught by surprise
Helping Belizeans and home and abroad to conceptualize
That PUD is about this country’s demise
They seek to keep the country petrified
Towing us along political and ethnic divide
PUDP refuse to unite the country
Like their masters they seek to control by telling us lies
And following plans the IMF and IDB has devised

They call Belize a participatory democracy
That propaganda – a hyperbole
Our patrimony and lands are still being sold
Their actions are discriminatory
Especially if you do not conform to their party
Partisan politics is killing this country
Now they’re using adds to hypnotize wi
This will stop when Diasporans stop supporting three
Horsemen DEEN, SEDI and the PINCHER when they go to Miami
Begging the Diasporans fi money
You all should support a new party
Your support has been securing their victory
As they continue to rape this country
It's the same with the People's United Party
Let’s join forces and make history and take back our country

Mark King is promising
To give squatters title
Then soon the foreigners will be naturalized
Belizeans open up your eyes
This is how PUDP strategize
Using the mass media to mind suck us
They are no different from Chis- teef us -come- bruk- us
They are not about developing the country
They are content on harnessing dependency
Budgeting at a deficit
Rather than a profit
They lack creativity, none of these jackasses are visionaries
They have no creativity, no local incentives for developing industries
No real plan to develop our ports
They should be look at Singapore’s efforts
Being a power trader on the world scene
These incompetent fools are killing the youth’s dreams
