We can't let this go down like that!

We can’t let this go down like that!

By Abdulmajeed K Nunez

BGYEA and Rod of Correction
Are symbols of hope
This is what Maurice Bishop tried to do with the Grenadian folks
This will put a halt to American imports
Then Americans invaded with force
Then assassinated him and put in their cohort
No wonder Barrow is trying to discredit Nigel’s effort
To ensure that his government continues to get endorsed

After the formation of ROC
The eleven organizations were responsible to send out a press release to that fact
Informing the nation they were committed to ROC
None except one did that
Now their spokesman is under attack
You all could have prevented that
Now it’s time for you all to take stock

Absurdity in Belize has become the norm
That was evidently the case with BGYEA
Now that BGYEA got the injunction lifted for them to plant corn
He has ignited the government’s venom and scorn
Now they are sending their boys in uniform
To intimidate and kick a storm
It is time for some land reform
Belizeans need to kick up a storm
It is time for legal reform
It’s time to make the government conform
And listen to the people’s concern

Crops deliberately poisoned in Valley of Peace
Big investors have their eyes on taking their piece
They are boycotting the small farmers
Making way for foreign investors
And their family members who are importers
Notwithstanding their brown nose supporters
We have the right to be our own food producers

Barrow please heed the elder’s warning
The consequences of Hitler, Yugoslavia Milosovitch, Saddam Hussein,
Bin Laden, Nicaragua Somoza, Haiti’s Duvalier, and lately Omar Gaddaffi.
Intoxication by the desire for absolute power
Is far worse than that produced by raw alcohol
Your timing of pressuring Petillo
Will only make him a household hero
This is not Arthur Young, He Cliff nor Mangar!
If you touch Nigel Petillo it’s gonna be war
Why is the PM trying to start a civil war?
Doesn’t he realize that he’s pushing us too far?
