Poets Corner: Terrorism
Published on January 4, 2017 Email To Friend    Print Version


By Abdulmajeed K. Nunez

Ministers should be sent to prison
For treasonous acts against Belizean citizens
After the eleven days strike, government never learned its lesson
Attempting to withhold the teachers’ salaries was an act of terrorism
Belize has a terrorism act
But most Belizeans are ignorant of this fact
Hence the reason they are reluctant to act
As the government sets on the unions back
Belizeans, we can do better than that

I make an appeal to teachers not to yield
Parents don’t make government use your children as shields
They, the managing authority and secret deals
Teachers’ fight is our fight for real
If we do not take a stand our fate is sealed
Teachers were not consulted when managers and government made their deal
Teachers should seek an injunction for real

Over fifty percent open vote workers is employment terrorism
So too is interfering in police investigations in the death of Mr Dawson
Pakeman still ain’t gone to prison
So too showing Noble favoritism
That is political terrorism
Government using children as pawns is terrorism
When will citizens demand ministers be arrested for terrorism?
Sabotaging the citrus industry is industrial terrorism
Hijacking BTL is business terrorism
The lie about owning BTL is technological terrorism

Appointing Net Vasquez without an accounting licence
To the Integrity Commission is political terrorism
Murderers walking due to nolle-pros is judicial terrorism
So is dangling judges contracts for political reasons
Paying gangsters to hold it down is urban terrorism
Providing gangs with guns is terrorism
So is allowing Guatemalans to annex Sarstoon
This country is being run by a bunch of buffoons
Hoodwinking us with the ICJ referendum is terrorism
Passing the Compremi without consultation is terrorism
This government aint learned its lesson
Parents on the ninth school children should continue their lesson
Anything else by government is terrorism.
