Yes another year of Independence to my island Barbados

Happy Independence Bim

There is no doubt that one can be sure that your many sons and daughters
Wherever they may be on the moon Mars or any point on the earth’s quarters
Most definitely will find it has to contain that joy and of course emotion
On seeing their mother reached that age now numbered forty seven

Perhaps as part of the celebration there may be a re-enacting of that night
When the Union Jack was ceremoniously taken from out of their sight
Then up when that flag whose purpose and determination was so evident
Who could not feel that feeling of pride on see the flying of the trident?

Also too one could see that purpose and compass of the skipper
As he kept those hands determinedly, purposefully and assuredly on the rudder
Sailing that ship affectionately called BIM through the competitive ocean
Providing that hope as he intrepidly face and found solutions to any problem

Then come those changes that occurred like a type of revolution
Ensuring that there was training and education for all in the nation
Make it possible for children no matter their perceived stratification
Could walk through those doors of what was considered a prestigious institution

Subsequently remained grounded on that path and held steady
Continuing to update and ensuring that the people were indeed ready
So that no matter the scope of the occupation that arise on the horizon
That someone could perform with competence at the stated profession

After those years of hard work that inner joy is very hard to contain
As the world see that height to which some of your children have attain
The feats of Sir Garry are still on many a memory, but recently in the entertainment arena
The world’s people are now clasp in the arms of captivating daughter Rhianna

Now as middle age looms there will those types of change
That the body no longer young will interpret at very strange
And lots of those efforts will take some toll and there will be strain
But what is living where at some stage of life there will not be some pain

Now the current leaders are under such a very heavy burden
As the recession and debt are posing some headache and problem
But that fortitude and prudence have taken you and your people to this distance
So raise those hands my people and acknowledge this forty-seventh year of Independence
