Taste of Guyana

By Dmitri Allicock

Most Guyanese know but no songs are sung

That convey the taste of home like the tongue

Pepperpot and bread, our salt- fish & fry bake

That special taste of Christmas with black cake

Seven curry with fresh roti rolled flat with a pin

Former GuySuCo CEO, Rajendra Singh

Yvonne Sam's BookNew book reveals a compilation of poems on various facets of life, political, pedagogical, moral, social and sexual issues

MONTREAL, Canada – Poet Yvonne Sam’s believes in people and hopes for a world where everyone can dwell in harmony and the fact that life is only one end of the fulcrum. In her new publication, Life’s Many Faces, she shows the many aspects of life. She addresses many crucial issues that society face today, using humor and her strong moral convictions to drive her point home.

This book is a seemingly humorous satire on the various faces worn by humans as they navigate the shards of life. The poet’s wit and intelligence is prevalent in the way she explores life in a variety of depths. Each poem is addressed to the person using languages and themes, attitudes and ideas familiar to anyone who had the ability simply to read.

She retains her keen honesty and directness, poetic sense and ironic intelligence.   Continue reading
