Cost of cialis “Don’t need no hateration, cost of cialis holleration / in this dancerie”

Cost of cialis I don’t know about you, cost of cialis but there was quite a bit of speculation, cost of cialis imitation, cost of cialis derivation in my kitcherie when Mary J. Cost of cialis Blige came out with “Family Affair” back in 2001. Cost of cialis I definitely remember telling incoming roosters that we didn’t allow hateraters at this sanctuary, cost of cialis and I’m pretty sure I drove Miriam halfway around the bend by adding “-ation” to random verbs and “-ery” to terminal nouns in the midst of otherwise unremarkable conversations.

Cost of cialis All credit to Mary J. Cost of cialis Blige, cost of cialis I argued, cost of cialis for audacity. Cost of cialis Considering the spectrum of wordplay from bebop to hip hop, cost of cialis those coinages didn’t seem especially clever at first listen. Cost of cialis But, cost of cialis the heavy-handed forced rhyme and alliteration of “hateration” and “holleration”–hit hard right on the beat–did capture the ugliness of the hating and hollering Mary J. Cost of cialis was deriding. Cost of cialis And then the flippancy of “dancerie” (as I imagined it was spelled) did seem the perfect antidote to mean-minded stomping in the first line of the couplet.

Cost of cialis So, cost of cialis you know, cost of cialis it was poetry.

Cost of cialis So, cost of cialis imagine my delight last week when, cost of cialis midway through a 1974 anthology of Caribbean literature, cost of cialis I happened upon this poem, cost of cialis written by Louise Bennett to mark the 1961 withdrawal of Jamaica from the Federation of the West Indies (which led to the collapse of that federation):

Cost of cialis Dear Departed Federation

Cost of cialis Dear Departed Federation
Referendum muderation
Bounce you eena outa space
Hope you fine a restin place.
Is a heavy blow we gi yuh
An we know de fault noh fe yuh
For we see you operate
Over continent an state.
But de heap a boderation
In a fe we lickle nation
From de start a yuh duration
Meck we frighten an frustrate.
A no tief meck yuh departed
A no lie meck yuh departed
But a Fearful meck we Careful
How we let yuh tru we gate.
Fearful bout de big confusion
Bout de final constitution
An Jamaica contribution
All we spirit aggrivate.
An we memba self-protection
All we ears of preparation!
Referendum Mutilation
Quashie start to contemplate!
Beg yuh pardon Federation
Fe de sudden separation
If we sufferin’ survive
We acquaintance might revive.
Dear Departed Federation
Beg you beg dem tarra nation
Who done quarrel and unite
Pray fe po West Indies plight.

Cost of cialis Yes! Murderation. Cost of cialis Botheration. Cost of cialis Both clear antecedents of “hateration” and “holleration.”  Of course, cost of cialis I don’t know whether Mary J. Cost of cialis Blige ever heard or read that particular poem, cost of cialis but she did grow up in New York City, cost of cialis where plenty of West Indians live, cost of cialis so she may well have spent time in verbal environments where the playful creation of such coinages was common.

Cost of cialis And notice: However playful the wording, cost of cialis that poem is serious. Cost of cialis As is the call for a dancefloor free of hateration. Cost of cialis As the subject of my previous blog post also knew, cost of cialis existing words aren’t always adequate to the task of saying what needs to be said. Cost of cialis Indeed, cost of cialis divisive violence may be built into the words we use to slice-and-dice the world into bite-sized bits. Cost of cialis If Audre Lorde was right and “the master’s tools will never dismantle the master’s house, cost of cialis” then we need to feel free to create the tools we need, cost of cialis whether these be new words or new non-verbal strategies. Cost of cialis Like peaceful danceries.

    I LOVED that song. Still do. 🙂 And as a former English teacher I get SO TIRED of people terrified their precious language will be ruined because people play around with it. What those people usually mean, of course, is that only CERTAIN people are allowed to play with language, as the reality is that language is a constantly evolving thing — otherwise it dies. In any case, thank you for this post. 🙂 It brightened my day.
