I remember when Esquivel government collapse
Caz Belize just had to give UDP the axe
1998 was not only bout retrenchment day
It was bout minister gone rougue and astray
Poor Manny he tried his best to reign dem in
But never prepared to defend dem sin
Inna no time he step aside
Hand over leadership to his joy and pride
Then Dean was the super-minister, weh know it all
And he vouched he could keep dem straight and tall
In his egotistic – I in control voice and stance
He forget he just join the biggest power-shuffling dance
Well when in opposition he never have to worry
None had power, none was doing anything in a hurry
Many were nowhere to be seen
The party was bruk the coffers lean
But when kruffy get tiad and vex
They booth out PUP with a curse and a hex
Dean beat he chest and rose to power
Forgetting even the best love goes sour.
He said he was noting like Esquivel
If dem man give trouble – he will send them to hell
Haha…. I still the wait to see that day
It no di happen – even as he gets bald and gray
True- He noting like Manuel, he can’t walk away
He caught up – he like power – he MUST stay
But one thing I cud say Equivel neva play
Not one day he mek excuse fuh dem dutty way!
Now watch how things truly the turn
Dean mek excuse even if he conscience the ache and burn
Who wudami tink he mi wah ever say
“Fuh God sake stop it” – dat dah mi the day!
Caz then we all know that he know that they di do bad
But neva try stop it – Dean that really sad!
Then he say – ‘Penner punished enough’
No ask Belizean to believe that – caz that though.
How could this international immigration disgrace
Sit well when eh deh inna wi face?
Den he mouth runway again and show his heart
“It wrong…. distasteful.. but not corruption” Dean dat no sound smart!
Even with all his big-time legal acumen
Dean stand up and defend these lawless men
Like a criminal lawyer defending crooks
Lawd this one surely gwen down ina mi books!
He seh this dah no Ali-Baba and the forty thieves
Now – I wonder what he musi tell Esquivel
Now that he visit the pits of hell!
Man wicked, minster corrupt, CEO di thief people too
Poor Dean, what can he do?
If he take serious action and end this tirade
Dah power he gwyne lose – and fuh dat he fraid.
But if he stand for right – right will prevail
But his faith in righteousness is too darn frail!
He tinks like man – by his own power and might
He no understand – he cud bring God in to win this fight!
But from the words of the mouth the heard is revealed
Dean we got your number – we know whats your deal!
You defend bad, you cover evil, you explain away wickedness
You really mi tink you tenure mi wah be blessed?
By uno own words uno wah reveals uno deeds
Other wannabe politicians – tek uno heed!
Penner no clean, Castro no poor, Dean no innocent…. NO NO NO!
So dis yah set gotto go!
