Pappy show!

Pappy show!

By Abdulmajeed K. Nunez

Hickory dickory dock
The mouse ran up the clock
The clock struck one
The mouse ran down
Hickory dickory dock

COLA standing up for social justice
So their stance is supposed to be without malice
Let me be candid
COLA's initiative should be commended
But this system is not to be trusted
UDP acted in unity with the PM’s malady
Knowing the mandamus would fail
Ensuring that in the meanwhile they could cover their trail
But it was already known that this would be the strategy
UDP does not want to stain their hands politically
They need to maintain they slim majority
They’ve know full well like Zinaida
They could have fired Penner
However that’s not an option at this juncture
It’s all a pappy show!

Except for Johnny Briceno’s father
Who was arrested in America
No other member of the house have ever been successful prosecuted
In the 90s Musa was arrested
For breaching the trust for which he was entrusted
But he was never successfully prosecuted
In fact he was vindicated
So the country looked stupid
This tactic is not effective
It’s all a pappy show

Meanwhile Maxell Samuel was accused of selling 300 passports
Then 200 gone missing
Both governments have been doing the same thing
But he too was never taken to court
In fact he had his party’s support
The US State Department revoked his visa
So he can’t go to nor pass through America
A matter for which Said Musa said he was willing to answer
Phillip Goldson was also accused
But it was his spouse and Deen Lindow should be the true accused
He took them to court and too was vindicated
So why are Belizeans getting excited
That Penner was arrested and is being prosecuted
When Musa was first arrested for your info
It was under the same MO
It was one big pappy show
His paparazzi was lone George Street gangsters
From the youth officers from department on Gabriel Lane
Had to be brought in to defuse and negotiate
And set things straight

The second time 2008 Musa was arrested and prosecuted
That’s when Earl Jones’s magistracy career ended
He was vindicated despite the evidence Ralphonomics provided
It’s a chess game being played
Someone needs to be the fall guy
Buy design it is all one big lie
Like Samuels and Musa we could try
Penner won’t be removed unless he resigns, is successfully prosecuted or dies
The UDP knows this and their counter strategy has been well designed
Belizeans open up your eyes
But I tell you it is a big, big pappy show and everybody knows
The rest of the world is sitting enjoying the comedy show!
Largely because it was done before
It is the hope of this government
That this case will be thrown out after a few adjournments
Making sure there is no indictment
Especially since the Kim files have been mislaid
A trick of the trade, someone has already be paid
Absence of evidence there is sure to be no trial
It’s all a big pappy show
