Make way for the new ‘green political rose’
The only new musical instrument of the last century, the pan, was invented in Trinidad and Tobago. Invented on July 29, 2013, was the green political rose.
This very first green rose has taken well and is seen growing in the very fertile political ground in Chaguanas West, Trinidad.
The political Horticultural Society of Trinidad and Tobago remains uncertain if this rose will thrive as robustly in other parts of this nation.
The green rose was hastily invented to replace the political red and yellow “Crapaud” vines found throughout this twin-island state.
Of grave concern is the fact that anti-government elements have threatened the planting of this green rose everywhere and anywhere if their political demands are not met.
These anti-government recalcitrants want water, paved roads, government housing and employment for all. Political rumour on the ground has it that if you place a wreath of green roses around your neck, everybody will vote for you.
Will this green rose take to the soil as well as the fertile “shining bush” which can be made into a tea?
The two political “flower shows” due in October 2013 and 2015 are under threat of their dates being changed. Whatever happens, given the supreme inventiveness of Trinbagonians, some sort of show will go on.
