For Barbados

You make fun of my accent

You strip my integrity, my identity

We are people too- the same blood

runs through us

We feel too- pride for country and nation,

our fellowman

We might borrow a bit of your culture

 

Ok, maybe a huge chunk here and there 

Should you not be flattered then?

We found inspiration in you who mock us!

Leave my little island alone!

This is my home.
