Jamaican Poetry
Its History & Development

Jamaican Poetry, contributed by Tracie Blake

The Jamaican Dialect of Patois (pronounced Patwa) is a colourful, expressive and dramatic language.

This native tongue is very passionate with variations between the British English and the American English. This has affected how the language of Patois is perceived in Jamaica and the rest of the world.

Poetry is an expressive, creative way of writing and when combined with Patois, it becomes positively explosive.

In Jamaican Poetry, we have an opportunity to express ourselves comfortably in our native tongue evoking emotions freely and comfortably.

It was this yearning desire that lead Jamaicaโ€™s first poets, Claude Mckay and Thomas MacDermot to write and publish our own poetry in the early 1900s.

McKay and MacDermot were both well-educated and well-traveled but they found their niche in writing J’can Poetry.

They opened the door to bring forth the blossoming of Louise Bennett in the late 1900s.

She was also well-educated and well-traveled with most of her travels taking her to England where the Queenโ€™s English was embedded in her.

She however, felt the need to come back to her roots and later argued and fought for Jamaican Patois to be accepted worldwide as a full language- in the same way as English.

She wanted Patois to be seen as a legitimate language- both in writing and performing literature.

This grew wings in the form of books, newspaper publications, festivals, stage shows and television broadcasts.

Over the years, it has been taught in schools and has garnered more publicity by being infiltrated to the world via the worldwide web.

From these eras of poets also sprung poets such as James Berry, Joan Andrea Hutchinson, Geoffrey Philip, Langston Hughes, Ralph Thompson and Valerie Bloom.

Poetry in Jamaica has expanded into Dub Poetry. Dub Poetry is a form of musical poetic expression tied to Reggae Music.

It is typically written and performed by Rastafarians with a distinct drumming as the background music.

It emerged in the early 1970s when disc-jockeys started “rapping” poems and lyrics to the music they spun.

It soon became popular as a label in Jamaica and on the British scene. The Rastafarian religious beliefs are featured a lot in Dub Poetry and Dub Poets are largely of the Rastafarian Sect.

This has been influential in embracing unity and peace amongst political activists in the island.

The first Dub Poets emerging were Mutabaruka, Oku Onuora and in Britain, Linton Kwesi Johnson.

Rastafarian religious beliefs are used a lot in dub poetry. Dub Poetry is mainly done through oral performances but has found itself in written forms over the years.

Other Dub Poets include Yasus Afari (Above), Malachi, Prince Far I, Michael Smith, Jean โ€œBintaโ€ Breeze, Levi “Tafari”, Delroy and the most recent sensation, ‘DYCR’ Chandler.

Legendary Jamaican Dub Poet – Yasus Afari

“If it were not for this King? I would never have met the Poets & Creatives in Jamaica. The gifts, sacrifices, and foundations layed & set by Brother Yasus Afari, gives fodder, fuel, and a template in which the art of roots and culture follows. He is an amazing creation of talent, service, and has an empowering love for humanity. Personally? I would love to have him on The Real Stuff Podcast. The gifts & knowledge of this King, is ASTOUNDING and vital for people on a whole.” ~Maxwanette A Poetess

๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธFather’s Day…For Mothers?๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ

Might Piss-Off Some People๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ

WHY?โ€ฆ
Why are some women still accepting Happy Father’s Day greetings?

Are we still saying, “Well, I am my kids, mother & father?” or “My Mom is the only dad I know.” Are you a mother, being given gifts for Father’s Day & accepting them? If you are? Please, I overstand, but stop it.

Yes, many of us are forced to take over the duties of a father, especially when they maybe absent from the home and or the lives of the children. And yes, it does become a dual role. But we are still MOTHERS.
Because the last time I checked, Mother’s are women & Father’s are men. When did that change? It doesn’t. Choosing poor men as Father’s, is where we went wrong, or so many other reasons, why he may not be in the picture. Heck! I made poor choices as well & I learned.

The point is? I’m darn tired of some women taking the day that’s for the men & Father’s away from them. It’s their day. For there are sooo many Father’s that are WONDERFUL & they should be allowed to fuljoy their day, without women taking over.

I had parents that wanted nothing to do with me, most of my life, based on the ignorance & hatred they had for themselves. I wish I had a Dad, like many I see. For our men are so vital, especially in the life of a little girl.

A Father teaches a girl, how she should be treated, what to pay attention to, and how to be prepared for whatever life throws her way. They show boys how to be men, be a provider & sustainer & protector. When a Dad isn’t there? Children lose their footing, and for little girls, we grow up to be women, missing that special connection, and that guidance in how to deal with men and certain things in life.

Yes women are known for “Doing It All.” But this day, is for the men, who are doing it all as well. I give YOU, a standing ovation. Because despite what many may say, “WE NEED & LOVE OUR MEN.” So, when Father’s Day is here? Good grief, let the men have it!
