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.

Well, feeling this poetry fa sho!

Now west indian, where is that exactly and all? My ex was west indian black some asian and all-, I thought it was in the bahamas or something, he was african american still so it got me confused.

Anyhow I love curry, and especially curry chicken. Don't get me started on plantains or "plantanos" girl I'll go crazy or 'platanos con crema' oh yea! hee,hee,hee,... there's this jamaican dish that is coconut milk and curry with shrimp and rice and beans, it's mmmm...good... if you have recipes, please post in the recipe forum, id like to see how it is done...

I'm going to go eat now!

Lovely, poem!

thanks for the luv

thank you, i really enjoyed writing this piece. My pops has always had a way of bringing people together to tell stories, share wisdom, and just "be" when he throws down. I hope one day I'll share that gift with my child.

I'm Black on Destee, I feel at home! It's been a while! Soooo in 2004 I married my Senegalese Husband, when I first went to Senegal, I loved, it! The people were hospitable and my husband's family was very kind! Well I've been there many times now, have taken African Americans, well over 150 and it has been an amazing experience!
