When Current go.....

Kite bust
fall on line,
current go
just in time
for the news.

everybody vex,
like they
never did have
boy days.

hold on now,
it nice you know,
peace and quiet
when current go,
no boom boom
in me ears.

Oh, so,
me one then
that hears
them beasts bawl,
just for we,
works good
for me.


  1. Sounds like bliss.

    Here, generators spoil the silence.

  2. it's amazing... nowadays we rant and rail against a power outage (and they very rarely happen in svg anymore)... 15 - 20 years ago they were regular and consistent... everyone was used to them and people didn't really mind... strange how a few years and some "progress" or "development" can eat away at a person's patience...


  3. GG, I love it when current go, the generators would come on here too, if it stayed off for a long time, but we are only talking an hour at most.

    Will, you are right, same thing here really. T was SO upset,mainly because there was no T.V.
    For someone who grew up with no electricity, (he's 34,) until he reached 10 years, I asked him how they used to spend their evenings. He thought about it for a while and then said they used to play. Exactly. Sadly, Grenlec arrived before we had a chance to decide what game he would like to play, Damn....
