The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Indelible western movie…
We could all compare and contrast,
When men of that era showed up their class.
How apt at this season, we see these similarities. Of worthy note – The Good – that most amicable discussion between Hon. Mia Motley and Hon. Ronald Jones on Brass Tacks, first elections debate. Kudos to them for setting the bar high, for other mortals to follow. The immediate response was deafening applause by a majority discerning Bajan listeners, quick to compliment and endorse. Definitely an Audey Murphy or Clint Eastwood moment even, to contrast.
Also in that movie, were the scenes of the lewd and sordid. The Bad – Like those who knocked over signboards in the dead of night, and defaced opponent’s signage, as if looking for a gun fight. Come now rebels of honourable men, we dislike such gore. There is absolutely no need for this type of marimba, not when less is more. Less we should forget The Ugly.
Stupidity forsaking honor,
More bark than bite.
Ladies and gentlemen
The Poodle caper!
As for that PARO poster ad, ‘unwanted’…most distasteful, bullet holes and all…by the intellectually bankrupt, whose time would have been better spent cow ‘tipping’ some sleeping caps. Now if crowd participation is anything to go by …both sides shall soon be seeing RED. But crowds are just that, and elections are but won on the day. Should we go by attendance of party faithfuls however, then definitely stark, hangings in the cold air.
These scenes from that once John Wayne era,
Again can be readily compared….
At this time of silly,
When all seems snared.
Hurry 21st February…
Bring on the fanfare !
