"mommy! mommy!"
"baby, i've got to go to work"
"daddy! daddy! aren't u coming home from work?"

where is di time fi yuh yute?

familiy secrets weh "pappa" show

how yuh fi mek school, radio & soap opera grow yuh dawta?
16 yo nuh come een tonite, yuh nuh si seh yuh falter?
absentee puppa straighten up yuh act

"quality family time" nuh mean eat-out dung a salem

puff up yuh yute wid fast food
two two's ya beat him, "ya get too big & fat!"
ledda belt caan bring discipline
beat up yuh yute, now buckle accidentally buss him chin
scarred fi life, di abused becomes di abuser
daddy have 3 sweet heart, den son nuh mus' woman abuser

dinner at the dining table, change di tone a di movie rentals
"american pie" nuh deh a kingston
nuh sure wah a kill all di yutes, but a di parents a kill some
tek charge a yuh family!

family structure

History has shown that it is the inaction of those who could’ve acted; the indifference of those who should’ve known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most that has made it possible for evil to triumph. - EMPEROR HAILE SELASSIE I
