Poets Corner: Citizen Security

Citizen Security

By Abdulmajeed K Nunez

I listen to Dianne and Nuri
Talking about citizen security
We have haters in Belmopan
Not liking gangs taking the Quakers stand
Not using violence on their fellow man
They don't like the murder stats
Di drop cause deh can't make money off that
The mayhem give them profits
Peace make dem have to dig into their pockets

The status quo is elitist
Dianne alluded to this
Who are anarchist
Who are sadistic
Who are narcissist
They don't support this peace tactics
They are propagandist
Pragmatist and strategist

Gang rivalry dah the new cash cow
IDB dah di milking sow
Gang dah di buzz word for proposal funding
How dear Dianne,Jawee, Nuri and Chester counter the hustling
Without them getting their off the top-creaming
You mean the youth really benefiting
They won't be able to order anymore contract killing
They’re losing control of the gang thing
Which provides soldiering
For drug trafficking
Human smuggling and money laundering
Enough with this community policing
The black market if you will
Pan top we have to resource sharing
With those we've labelled nothing

Hell no shut it down
Move Chester from the town
Let Belize City decay
So we can move the citizens away
Then make the foreigners pay
For beach front properties in Florshore and Yabrough
The way we did with Placencia
You think the Majestic Alley fire?
Happen by accident brother
This was an order sent by those Bramas in power
State execution will become more frequent
Since the gangs have gotten more intelligent
So GSU snitches must gather better intelligence
They need murder to become frequent
So deh hustle from the US more equipment
So we get more streets outa cement
It’s not citizen security management
It’s population management
We are not privy to these signed agreements
Who’s not pussyfied faces imprisonment
Who are vocal are silenced
