Belize Child Exploitation!

Belize Child Exploitation!

By Abdulmajeed K Nunez

“The tourism industry is not to blame!”
The CEO of the ministry of Belizean enslavement was quick to proclaim
The taxi drivers and the tour operators are the one initiating it
Who in their right mind believes that bullshit?
Didn’t the PM say, “For God sake stop it!”
You all think he was only talking about the visa shizzz?
Hit them on the hip you all are condoning it
You all see an opportunity so you are exploiting it

Everyone is exploiting Belize’s children
Even those sworn to protect them
The PAHO ministry of health has been killing them
Those they don’t kill with fake medicines they are disabling them
The US security ministry
Has been arresting, profiling, incarcerating, emasculating and criminalizing them
Using their gang associates to assassinate them
Whilst murderers, rapists and drug barons are finding Belize to be a safe haven
The ministry of human enslavement and institutionalized dependency has been using, abusing and dehumanizing them
With the unaccounted welfare system
With BOOST, Pantry teaching them to beg
The institutionalized ministry of confusion called education
Indoctrinates, cultural desensitizes, trivializes civic pride and expels our young men without skillfully enabling them

The Human Rights Commission, Women’s Department, NCFC, Community Rehabilitation and the National Council for Families and Children seems to have abandoned them
Initially their mandate was to protect them
Their silence has been deafening
Have they joined the band wagon to exploit them?
Just to earn a chair at the master’s table?
We need to hold them accountable

Two million of taxpayers’ dollars
Spent in an NGO, whoa!
Have we seriously asked how the inspiration center will assist the poor?
Why can’t we build on existing structures anymore?
Are we seriously about the people or just for a show
Perhaps we are content that Belize is turning into a little Singapore

BTB is promoting child cruise ship prostitution
It’s now time for the special envoy’s twenty thousand women strong!
Or was that all about symbolism?
What is the tourism minister’s position?
Like I said I’ve heard nothing from the child organizations
Not a word from the human development minister
But then again he just experienced psychological trauma
At Mike’s club on Regent Street where he witnessed a murder
What about our children who are experiencing that nightly trauma
Notwithstanding Santi wants us to believe his messenger was killed by a robber
Meanwhile the “private dancing” minister’s wife windshield was broken by a jealous ex- lover
However, when she was undergoing her trauma, she was visited by the wife of Yowl Brinner and asked her not to press charges as it will affect the party in power
She should be asking the private dancing minister
What happened in Punta Gorda, involving his phone and laptop computer?
But then again he is protected by the local media
