My friends, I admire people who work hard for dem food. Yes man, particularly in this time when you have so many beggars (9) , like the young boys (11) who siddung pon di corner a dig out dem hand middle every hour of the day.

Dem young, strong and idle, but on the other end of the spectrum you have those who are trying, despite their disabilities. One old lady (36) was telling me 'bout dis one-armed (1) man (23) who she see with a big bungle a broom pon him head (12), walking the neighbourhood looking sales (25). Dat man has to be strong to (6) to mek that very hard job look so easy.

And what with the mad man (27) showing the little girls (16) him body parts on the roadside? Time fi adults start tek dem sort of complaints deh serious. Dat is no laughing matter. But probably the police dem (13) could step in too and get him a spot in the famous hospital (33) to get some help.

Mi glad fi di the rain (24) 'cause the heat was was 'causing a lot of fights (22, 27) in the community. But people must grow up. Adults must know dem place and teach dem kids accordingly. More time.
