Poem Bahamas People

Poem: Bahamas People

 

 

Bahamas people give thanks to God
for surviving the age of slavery's cord
Blacks and whites simmer peacefully as one
in the mist of the racism gun

 

Bahamas people praise the lord
descendants of slaves and masters in accord
Bahamas people are happy and proud
to God the Father they sing aloud

 

Bahamas people depict the globe
living as one in their ethnic robes
Bahamas people enjoy being free
turning back will never be

 

Bahamas people is a melting pot
singing and dancing and whatnot
