When she says you are niceI am amazed to see Trini has her finger on the pulse of Twenty-first Century.
You don't believe in her
Because she said it for a plate of rice
to feed her daughter
What you do is to think twice
Whether to buy her goods or leave her forever.
Or that's how I feel!
By simplicity and economy of means and by elegance this quoted poem reaches Iconic level.
Her poems are for people in the homes, in farms, on street, in workshops, not merely for the blog authors. The compassion in her poetry is universal, though humble she may be: I would rather say it expresses Universal Motherhood, that of “African Eve” the term that scientists use, rather than a term in currency, “brotherhood”, projected by the male dominated societies.
