Letter: Allen, where's the pain eh pannier?
Published on January 9, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

Dear Sir:

I am getting more tired from reading UWP news than my old age. My Blackberry all of a sudden is delivering email faster that the post office. Sometimes I pity my trusted Blackberry, but I will hold on to it since Allen Chastanet (the UWP new Santa Claus) has not come by with a gift as yet. To make matters worse, I am still waiting for my pain eh pannier.

Christmas came and left. No Allen. No Santa. Not even his elves or his cherished “poodle” could be found. His was covered, by all indications, with a wedding gown and too wet to come out.

It is hardly a week into the New Year and it is as if nothing has changed. Allen is hell bent on putting Stephenson King in a straightjacket and going about confidentially with Women in Action (WIA) and an executive that NSA cannot secure their phones. Their chatter is busier than the most popular local phone company.

They are a basket case making thudding noise at each other. I sometimes wonder if they are competing like my domesticated chickens scratch for leftovers found on the feeder. Something, the new addition to the farm, a Guinea pig would not find appetizing.

It was not long ago that Allen Chastanet promised “pain eh pannier”, and still there is no bread. He said he can deliver, I eh see no delivery man. He says he can finish off Kenny Anthony and take control of the country, up to now, nada. Now he picking on the heavy roller, it looks like the end is near. We all know Stephenson King is heavy, so the winner is. You done know!

So much so that my Blackberry was on fire all day Wednesday, January 8, reading, Allen’s letter to King, King’s letter to Allen and the biggest soap opera yet, get ready, a long four-page letter to Allen from the Flambeau Activists Called To Service (FACTS). These letters are top secret and widely circulated on the market steps and on William Peter Boulevard for all to read.

The executive is now contemplating if Allen should ever write to King again. At the same time, Ezekiel Joseph was on my TV last night and on radio today explaining that the letter was misunderstood.

For heaven sake, even if I am poor and uneducated, I can read and write. No wonder these politicians work so hard to remain in power or work in the civil service. They are not able to work anywhere else, not even on my farm.

Anyway, this latest round with Allen Chastanet has only one winner and plenty losers. I look forward for the wise counsel of the president of the senate to explain the details and constitution to me on his radio program.

Hopefully, Allen Chastanet and his advisors will be listening. While I await Santa Claus to deliver pain eh pannier.
