Children dying left, right and centre, people say you eh writing, you eh have nothing to say. What is your position? I say 69, yes 69, that is my position, that’s not your favourite position two/ too? Shock, violation? Hear me out. But I stand by my position, dais how we like it. Somebody up-right, but somebody upside down, pleasure all how, but possibility of a little stench close and always lurking. I Ass-ume you know what I mean.
So how we get to this? Reverend Teelucksingh say “Something is definitely wrong, some evil force seems to have its eye on our babies. You better get down on your knees, you know. You better get down on your knees, we have to do it as a nation. We better watch this very carefully, it’s a new pain and agony and grief in the country,” The Reverend was referring to the number of young children who died under tragic circumstances recently. For the year there were 18 tragic deaths of children 12 and under. (Newsday Friday June 20th)
I agree with him you know, we have to pray, but I not sure about the evil spirit theory. This is a man-made situation. My theory is 69. A human created situation of pleasure, occasionally punctuated by pain/stench. How many times we see a person driving a vehicle with a child standing between the seat, or on a seat. How many times, we take a chance by the light (traffic), texting while driving, leave the car running to just grab something, drink and drive, drive without the seatbelt, have lighters around the home, matches around, leave children unsupervised, or supervise them to do wrong. I am guilty you know, I am not playing holier than thou.
Here is how the 69 theory works, we always on the outside looking in (reading the papers, listening to the news), and we are the upright (is there really an upright in 69 when some ass in your face). My child eh dead, and I cyar understand how you could let that happen to a child. What? How he could forget the child in the car? Ah mean! While we stand/lie/lay in the upright we getting a sense of pleasure because we escape, we have not erred, and escaped.
Are we really in a pleasure position? As we empathise and sympathise with the victims or the affected, are we in pleasure? Yes we are, always “claiming” to feel their pain, while their life turned upside down. The sad thing is we doh realise many times we do the same Ass ness that causes these incidents/accidents to happen, and that the stench/pain really closer than we think, so much so that some of us, every now and then get a scare, a faint or strong smell of the shit/danger that lurks. What do we do? We Stop. Change our behaviour for a bit. We may for a while, but for many back to the bad habit. Oh suhweet 69.
I predict (regrettably) that in the next two months there will be a domestic abuse season, a road traffic accident season, more killings, and the killing or robbery of some public figure that we love so much, ah “Dana” so to speak. I doubt that all or any of these will be due to some evil spirit roaming the land.
Much the same as the first half of the year we will continue to exist on the border of pleasure and pain/stench that has come to characterise our society. As I said I agree with Teelucksingh (we need prayers), coincidentally I also agree with a statement made by Archbishop Harris, he says “the vast amount of inequalities present in the country could be fuelling the violence in society”. Maybe I should change my position to a Missionary as it seems only religious people expounding and I seem to agree with their position.
What is your position?
