DPC POETRY: Lovely Dominica in transition

This Isle of Beauty is getting crazy,
all you hear is killing and robbery.
Fire bombing is the new thing;
stop hurting my country, let my country bling.

So full of charm and romance too;
where did this come from? I’ve got no clue.
Let’s take back our Cinderella –
Our beautiful country, we all love her.

It’s sweet, its jolie; vegetation so lush;
rain forest, valleys, hills and mountains, rivers that gush.
Beautiful scenery, friendly people,
culture so rich, like music on a fiddle.

Come together one and all,
Dominica so unique, still stands tall.
Breathtaking are her waterfalls,
a country where we can all have a ball!

    I have take time to read this poem over and over, all in an effort to understand what message you really trying to bring across to your readers. In your first paragraph to your readers, I swear that this country that you are talking about one should not set foot on that island.

    Thereafter you began to tell of the beauty of the country. The people are so charming and friendly. Please tell me, who are committing the robberies and killings? Is it by foreign nations? in your effort to make your poem rhyme you have tarnished the name of your country. Shameful of you.

    During the time of your independence, while people are merging in your country, be a true ambassador, be a true patriot, and tell us a good story.
