Belize-Guatemala Comics

By Abdulmajeed K. Nunez

Everything in Belize is politics
A fake nationalism has replaced our logic
Some may call me unpatriotic
But that’s because I don’t buy into gimmicks
This Belize/Guatemala foolishness
The ruling party tactics has positioned themselves to profit
Denying both countries real benefits
Whiles the governments and the OAS boys
Playing verbal gymnastics, it’s time Belizeans do their personal analysis
Creating an imaginary conflict
Blaming the British, when they and the Americans are orators of this comics
They need to put a sock in it!
I’m not buying it!

Guatemalan and Belizeans share the same river
Both can benefit from working together
Fertile lands for agriculture and sharing one border
Similarity in diverse culture
Both have citizens traversing their borders
Guatemalans are benefitting from Belize in every way
With Guatemalans coming to learn English every day
Studying at UB when they go home they earn better pay
Belizean are benefitting, Belizeans studying in their universities the same way

Buses of students cross the border to come the Belizean schools
Whilst the Belize City residents are consumed living on fumes
Bordering communities can enjoy cheap groceries and fresh legumes
Notwithstanding benefitting from gas prices that are reduced
Belize should be preparing for the beef explosion
Opening trade with Mexico, Guatemala, Latin America and the wider Caribbean
But PUDP is about black marginalization
Stagnating production and encouraging importation
Promoting gentrification in the name of tourism
Musa spoke of balkanization, “our border is artificial!” said Elrington

Belize is a blessed nation
But what product do we have that we can call a national product?
We continue to ship out our raw materials
Is this how we equip our children to compete regionally or internationally?
Is this how we will stop marginalization?
This crap is not benefitting either nation
It seems that it is only America that is benefiting from this region
Belize needs to get into the competition
The citizenry need to take back their power from these political traitors.
We need to stop playing into the hands of these comical orators.
