Jamaican princesses 👸 – TB

6 Apr

Come on all you princesses

In your wonderful frocks and headdresses. 

It’s Thursday, you’re thirsty

To speak your mother tongue. 

Fine and dine in Wetherspoons,

We may sing a tune or two. 

They may not have our callaloo fritters. 

They may not have our ackee salt fish. 

But company from back home is what’s in order, 

And that is what we’ll have

    Oh, those dishes sound wonderful! I like the way you combine a touch of homesickness with a feeling of joyful celebration.

    The food sounds amazing, and I am certain the companionship is just as wonderful.
