Friends , where is the rain (24)? June almost done and di heat a batter wi. Fall, rain, please! But nuh flood out di poor people dem.

Mi just cyaan understand why so many people believe big gut (8) is in style. I saw one man (23) yesterday, without shirt and the big belly hanging down like it a beg bread.

It was painful as I watched the elderly woman (36) using her walking stick to slowly cross the road. And sometimes you see some old man (13) barely making it, and yuh haffi wonder why so many people are victims of poverty. And most of them are in inner city, where political officials (34) depend on their votes each parliamentary cycle. So maybe it pays to keep them poor? Think about it.

It is a shame on our big (33) neighbour! Is this the same country which puts out the annual Department of State report slapping other countries about human rights? Yet children are being caged like dogs (11) and separated from parents. Wow!

You all walk good until.
