BY Tulsi Dyal
Gouveia, Shuman, Greenidge and Ramkarran:
One of long attachment; one of newest promise;
One mih fren from sixty years ago;
And de last one, from long before is back.
Ah glad to see dem all on board
Especially since in three out of four
No Sanskrit syllables testify their names.
Institutional knowledge and expertise
Shoving aside our historical divisions.
Portuguese, Amerindian, Black and Indian
If mih figure right or close enough to right.
But it doesn’t really matter, dey are Guyanese
Called to work on behalf of all Guyana.
How would I love to see Gaskin and Jonas
And Ubraj Narine and Vincent Adams
Become prominent members of de team
Lifting Guyana up to its promised dream!
