Buy viagra uk “Don’t need no hateration, buy viagra uk holleration / in this dancerie”

Buy viagra uk I don’t know about you, buy viagra uk but there was quite a bit of speculation, buy viagra uk imitation, buy viagra uk derivation in my kitcherie when Mary J. Buy viagra uk Blige came out with “Family Affair” back in 2001. Buy viagra uk I definitely remember telling incoming roosters that we didn’t allow hateraters at this sanctuary, buy viagra uk 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.

Buy viagra uk All credit to Mary J. Buy viagra uk Blige, buy viagra uk I argued, buy viagra uk for audacity. Buy viagra uk Considering the spectrum of wordplay from bebop to hip hop, buy viagra uk those coinages didn’t seem especially clever at first listen. Buy viagra uk But, buy viagra uk 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. Buy viagra uk was deriding. Buy viagra uk 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.

Buy viagra uk So, buy viagra uk you know, buy viagra uk it was poetry.

Buy viagra uk So, buy viagra uk imagine my delight last week when, buy viagra uk midway through a 1974 anthology of Caribbean literature, buy viagra uk I happened upon this poem, buy viagra uk 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):

Buy viagra uk Dear Departed Federation

Buy viagra uk 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.

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

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