True, it would be another 50 years before your Great Britain would understand how We, the many, can become a singular Trini verb. We is Trini, free to write and sing in we own diverse idioms. In fifty years, Lizzie, we would be helping you to become one; we will show you, how, out of many disparate people, you too can create one nation, because We IS Trini, Lizzie. I hoist meh national flag to you ....details of the feting and the liming in Letters to Lizzzie coming to a bookshop near you, soon... krisrampersadglobal books
