So nice to be back a yaard.




This poem is from one of our most ardent fans, friend, and Jamaican enthusiast, Sistren Jen for the UK. She wrote this poem when she visited family here in Jamaica recently. It's so real... love it!

Here it goes...

Thunder roll, it's so hot,
drinking water, ice cold,
Smell the herb a burn tastes so good
It's so nice to be back a yaard
Me seh it sooo nice to be back a yaard

See de goat dem cross de road
Looking for sweet bush, dem up on back toes
Lizard inna de bath need a helping hand
Me a catch him in a cup and put him back pon de land
It's so nice to be back a yaard
Me seh its sooo nice to be back a yaard


Forward to Spanish town in a taxi
6 inna de back it must get crampy
Next I n I tek a bus
It stuffy an warm but me nah mek no fuss
It's so nice to be back a yaard
Me seh its sooo nice to be back a yaard


Back inna Spanish town, the hustler callin buy tam an cap
Buy melon and pine
It so sweet and taste so fine
It's so nice to be back a yaard
Me seh its sooo nice to be back a yaard


Pon de beach the water so warm and blue
The waves so high dem a wash over yuh
Eating fresh fried fish, festival and bammy
Nah eat it facing the wind or it will be all sandy
It's so nice to be back a yaard
Me seh its sooo nice to be back a yaard


Inna st Anne's bay, fyah burn pon de mineral water
Just relax I body wash away the stress
Iditatate smoke de erb I feeling fresh
It's so nice to be back a yaard
Me seh its sooo nice to be back a yaard


Babylon stop we inna country
Dem seh we are speeding but me nah believe
3000 dollar dem a tek aweh fram we
Teef dem a teef
Wa gwan with dis piracy?
A dis how dem behave inna yaard
It's still so nice to be back a yaard
Meh seh it's sooo nice to be back a yaard.
