Poets Corner: Solomon!
Published on February 11, 2016 Email To Friend    Print Version

Solomon!

By Abdulmajeed K Nunez

poets_corner.jpg
Solomon said, “Great men are not always wise!
“Ole people sometimes do foolish things”
This time highly intelligent people got it mistaken
BBA is now at centre stage
Did they investigate to ensure they and Plus TV was on the same page?
Was this decision made by the BBA INSTITUTION?
Since you have the responsibility to draw the final conclusion
Was a decision made out of malice or misinformation?
Are you conspirators to close down fuh we Plus TV station?
At the end of the day our taxes will pay attorneys
In the final analysis our taxes will pay court fees

Belize Broadcasting Association is being ridiculous
Dehnya adults want to be mischievous
By saying Plus TV is not on air
This being the reason for not accepting license fees
Geez! Are these are people with degrees?
BBA please!
You are being ridiculous!
Your letter denying them licence is ludicrous
BBA, you are insulting us!
There is no suggestion of Plus TV breaking any laws
This decision seems to be flawed
We are hoping whoever made the decision made it while sleeping
Or while dozing off
Unaware of the chain reaction this is going to set off
Dah noh who have the first laugh

I’m giving you the benefit of the doubt
I am hoping by tomorrow a reverse of this decision can come about
And the apology dis yah your authoritative misstep deserve Will come forthwith from uhnu, dah BBA, mouth!
This will incur unnecessary court processes
Plus TV can sue for damages
The language itself is out of whack
The reason for not granting them licence it should be open for discussion
In this case it is true, true irrational
I don’t wanna assume it is political!

Not being on air
Anything digital is on air
If you say they not on air using audio
Love Fm can be on air using only video
They are on air using both audio and video
On cable, the World Wide Web, beaming signals
BBA, we are entertained by your resurgence
After becoming comfortable with your dormance
The presumption in you correspondence
Is indicative of your ignorance
I would refer to Solomon in this instance!
