This collection of poems is an expression of Jamaican culture in a rich form and varied in style and content. Readers will encounter expressions and experiences which tell a great deal about the culture of the Jamaican people. The poems cover a wide variety of topics. While most of them address social issues, others tell of ordinary things like scary creatures, a fight or a rainy day. The poems can be read for enjoyment; can be performed at functions; can be used in schools; and participants in the National Festival of Arts will find them quite handy and easy to learn. They fall under six headings Church, Holidays and Special Events, Proverbs, People, Scary Creatures and Other Poems and were created from the author's experiences. There are also poems about students' reaction to exams and parents' attitudes to the Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT).
