DEDICATED TO MY DAD "PEPPI"
“A SOUL FOOD MASTER”
Ur words carry to me, sweet as Poppy’s fried plantain
Calling me out from hiding, fill me to sustain
Come, sit down, and share, make sure to fill ur plate
All you need is here, everything else can wait
Leave the worry at the door, stress & troubles too
Together as a family there ain’t nothin’ we can’t do
That’s Soul Food really – nurturing and some love
Don’t ever need an excuse, we do it just because
Aki ‘n salt-fish cakes, Hmmm child, now ur talking
Wanderers get weary and need to just stop walking
Cassava for the strength, remember okra purifies
What ya need for cook-up is plenty o’sweet black-eyes
Fried chicken, curry goat I think we got it all
Unless u need some more, then bring on the dahl.
Matouks’ is raising temperatures feel the fire from within,
But we be laughing anyhow, so pour the juice and gin
Music follows aroma and the healing has begun
Many are our numbers, but always we are one.
