other poems by Alma Norman

QUESTION: She wrote one about the ethnic groups of Jamaica. I'm not good at reciting poems but so I never learned it. I can only recall bits and pieces and the pieces are stuck un my head. It would really help if I could get the rest.

Black skin brown skin everybody come and hear what i have got to say

How our ancestors came here across the seas
His grandma and her grandpa and the same for you and me...


Does anybody know this poem?

ANSWER: by Wellesley September 12, 2011

Hi Marg,

I'll post this in our blog, on our facebook page as well as create a permanent page on my site for it.

I am hoping that someone who can relate to it will post their response as a comment here.

Stay in touch Marg.
