Police State

By Abdulmajeed K. Nunez

We are living in a police state
Police no longer investigate
Drive in tinted vehicle without licence plate
Licensed firearm around their waist
Some of them draw with haste
Beating our youth till they have to wear brace
Slapping mothers in their face
Tazering them and spraying them with mace

Officer turn car dealer
Uses his girlfriend fi go register
But whenever he comes to town there is a murder
Is he for real or is he a grim reaper
We have heard of state execution
He and all the badman deh pan par
He has been instrumental in all the turf war
Now when it looks like he is observing from far
He is evidently the superstar

Babylon get wi youth enna state sponsored program
Some mi di grow tilapia pond
They use the youth sell dope and jack man
These officers di abuse them position
Hiding behind the police organization
Retired policeman high up in the organization
Went to American for recreation
Then get beat up by bad man

Death squads throughout the Caribbean
Rumor were that Jagan had one
Weh mek unu think Belize noh have one?
Deh say when you play with puppy you get fleas
So when you work with criminals, oh geezzz
I di try noh fi sneeze
Ghost town and Backa town di beef
Such decision are made under sheet
Ranking officer weh lost his computer
Went to KHMH for high blood pressure
Just like Mr Penner, needs to work harder
Instead of impressing the prime minister
Stop playing politician, you’ll never be commissioner.
