    Dmitri, your poetry and photos bring alive Guyana and its people. Thank you for the memories and the lessons taught and learned.

    My favorite poems are “So the Story Goes,” “Oh Precious Woman,” and “Lean on Me.”

    I take with me, these wise words from “So the Story Goes”:

    “But no matter where you travel or what you do / Those answers that you seek, lies within you.”

    Write on, brother 🙂

    (Part I)

    The land of many waters is my forever Guyana
    Sandwiched between Brazil and Venezuela
    Also called the land of six peoples
    Although some behave like weevils
    Including the Blacks and Indians
    And our neglected Amerindians
    We live on the flat coastlands
    From Point Playa to Springlands
    Mesmerized by racial politics
    Still using the race card tricks
    It appears as if we’re bloody cursed
    With some of us stuck in reverse
    Just to stay sober and keep alive
    Whilst some are in forward drive
    Some myopic and so stubborn
    Some hope for newborn morn

    My Guyana is Raleigh, Sir Walter
    The fearless Elizabethan explorer
    He sailed up the Orinoco
    Hoping to find El Dorado
    Around campfires his saga is told
    How he came looking for our gold
    Dr.Walter Rodney is in My Guyana
    The stalwart historian, and teacher
    He cleansed their eyes of many from boo-boo
    And on Bent Street he met his tragic Waterloo
    My Guyana is Cheddi Jagan
    Who showed the world he can
    After 28 years in the opposition
    To the infamous Machiavellian
    He found peace and sanity
    And brought back democracy
    Eventually we got independence
    After bitter struggle so immense
    But I’m thankful to that Kabaka
    When I couldn’t take the pressure
    I left Guyana and came to the USA
    And then later settled in Canada
