Poem Junkanoo

Poem: Junkanoo

 

 

Junkanoo is a time of celebration
it is a culture of jubilation

Bahamians look forward to the drumbeats
and the cowbells shaking sweet

 

In the music kitchen, the melody is neat
the horns blowing, and the whistles are sleek

Junkanoo fills the heart
and penetrates the soul

It is an experience to behold!

The dead comes to life
and the living dances, are never trite

All are welcome to the festival
so, come as you are!

Junkanoo is strange faces from afar
coming to full life at the par!
