POETRY: Pwéson fwé

Too, toot, toot,
Kon la ka koné
Moun ka pwépawé
Yo byèn pwésé
Jik bodlanmè
Yo tout ka alé.

Halé ho, halé ho
Mawen épi dot moun
Kannòt yo ka halé
Kannòt  épi  nas
Epi bèl pwéson fwé.

Senk  liv pala
Dis koté sala
Moun ka mandé
Toutmoun ansanm
Vlé ganyen pwéson

Avan mawen vann
Lo yo ka tiwé
Epi moun ki halé
Asi sa yo ganyen
Wanjman yo ka twapé.

    Does every thing have to be a war? remember we were not aloud to speak it in school ,muchless learn to write or read it, so if some people a way from DA can’t read it we should not blame them ! am in DA and i could not read all of it, speak it i can, writing it not well!

      you have given up your culture and tha is your problem.It’s to damn easy for us as Dominicans to forget from whence we came.I have friends in London who were born and raised right there and speak more creol/patois than some of you recent migrants to the U.S,Canada and the U,K.Please check Mr Lennox Honeychurch for a book on Dominican creol/patois.Merci Bondie i pas ni anyen pour koupe sa.
