Plant the corn, Mista Man!

Plant the corn, Mista Man!

By Abdulmajeed K. Nunez
Instructions from the Master Teacher

Will the prime minister honour the court order?
Will he make good on his good measure speech to the media?
Or will he be sour after the courts lifted the injunction?
Perhaps he will subject this decision to yet another interpretation
Since this seems to be his new modus of operation
Be mindful he will try to pull a fast one
We get that you had to reassure your power brokers
That you are still in command
And that there is not going to be an insurrection
I call on the Rod of Correction to pay close attention
Just plant the corn, Mista Man!

BGYEA congratulation!
On the lifting of the injunction
Just for your information here is a little reflection
Beltrade has a corn agreement with the Caribbean
My master teacher says to the tune of millions
Belize is not tapping into this option
So let’s plant the corn, Mista Man
Time to form a corporation amongst the owners of the land
Plant the 1,300 acres instead of one
One that could yield over 1.8 million immediately
With three harvests of corn yearly
At eighteen hundred dollars an acre approximately
Plant the corn, Mista Man!

The injunction was intimidation
This government’s fear
Is that Harmonyville residents could become millionaires
In three to four years, no longer needing their welfare
Each resident can get a brand new house in two to three years
Each household could make fifty four hundred in the first year
To organize themselves and become empowered
It’s raw land out there; this can easily become a business venture
It requires a careful plan and consultation
Your journey has began
Continue with your legal consultant
This will require heavy negotiations
Plant the corn, Mista Man!

Politicians have never done social thing yet
Maybe the prime minister’s heart has changed since ROC became a threat
Take up the PM offer of supplying corn from the ministry of agriculture
He said he’s even throwing in a bulldozer as good measure
Or you could even team up with the Maya
Since agriculture is their bread and butter
Plant the corn, Mista Man!

Sometimes I wonder can we really solve Belize’s situation from within Belize
If we read about revolutions
It’s about agreements you make with international organizations
With people who identify with you, willing to work, serve and help you
The French, Cuban and Venezuelan revolutions
Started outside and came back inside
BGYEA, you have the right team by your side
Read about the Senegalese revolution, it will open your eyes.
Plan the corn, Mista Man!
