Greetings my brothers and sisters of Chock-Blocko.
What with ‘Dis and Dat’ world wide matters such as Ratko Mladic, the former Bosnian Serb general, getting dip and making his appearance before a UN tribunal in The Hague, not to mention liard Mr. Murdoch, I-Man been really busy trying to decipher if the planet has gone MAD, again! Will the UK’s PM, David Come-Around, be summoned to stand-up & be grilled in the Hague? Will the citizens of the UK ever smash down Buckingham Palace gates and ditch the Queen? Will the Jamaican people attempt to make a civil arrest of Bruce Golding? We live in Hope!
Let’s get to my mystic ode, this Blog Opera will make you believe that a man can fly. Remember this is an ode about Vastaman ‘Jamaica’s 1st Superhero’……So STOP, LOOK AND LISTEN!

HEATHROW AIRPORT, CAR-PARK (Continuous)

The traffic warden snarled back at Uncle Chester. Mama Mention declared a few incomprehensible quotations from Psalms and then began dipping her head from side to side as if possessed by demons. Uncle Chester turned towards me vexed and gave me a, ‘Who’s fault is this’ look. I just shrugged.
