This book shares Marjorie Walter’s commentary on some of the personal, social, and economic issues she has experienced growing up and living in poverty-stricken communities in Jamaica. Many of her poems highlight the daily struggle of Jamaican people. Murder, Roses for the Victim, and Pickney on Fire are a few of the poems that deal with the increasingly disturbing issues of crime and violence, police brutality, incest, abuse and a number of other crippling problems experienced by people living in low income communities. She also shares quite a few love poems that brings focus to the game of courtship between couples. Check out Ghetto Love, Gangster Love vs. Thug Love, The Call Before Dawn and many others.
