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
