letter to Darren Dammy

TODAY I PENNED A LITTLE PERSONAL NOTE TO DISMISSED WEST INDIES CRICKET CAPTAIN,DARREN SAMMY.
DEAR MR SAMMY,
LET ME CONFESS THAT THOUGH YOU KNOW MY BROTHER RONALD HINKSON VERY WELL, YOU AND I  NEVER MEET AND TO TELL THE TRUTH WHEN YOU FIRST BECAME CAPTAIN OF THE WEST INDIES TEAM
I WONDERED OUT LOUD,LORD WHA WE COMING TO NOW, WHO IS THIS YOUNGSTER FROM A COUNTRY THAT NEVER REALLY HAD NO LONG HISTORY IN WEST INDIES CRICKET DAT GOING TO BE DE WEST INDIES CRICKET CAPTAIN?

BUT OVER THE YEARS YOU EARNED MARKET VENDOR’S RESPECT, PITY YOU DIDN’T EARN IT FROM SOME OTHER PEOPLE IN AUTHORITYAS WELL.
DID I HEAR YOU SAY THAT YOU HAD A CALL FROM THE CHAIRMAN OF SELECTORS THAT LASTED ABOUT 30 SECONDS DURING WHICH TIME HE TELL YOU THAT YOU WERE BEING REPLACED AS CAPTAIN OF THE T20 TEAM AND FURTHERMORE THAT YOU DID NOT MERIT A PLACE IN THE T 20 PLAYERS OF 13?

HE MUSTA  TALK REAL FAST CAUSE THAT IS A LOT TO SAY IN 30 SECONDS.IT WOULDA TAKE ME 30 SEOCNDS TO EXCHANGE PLEASANTIRES BUT I GUESS DE CALLER DIDN’T WASTE TIME WID DAT!

IF I HAD KNOWN YOU DARREN, I COULD HAVE WARNED YOU THAT JUST LIKE OTHER CAPTAINS BEFORE YOU,AND SOME GREAT PLAYERS TOO, WHEN DE TIME COME TO BE DUMPED YUH GOING TO BE DUMPED UNCEREMONIOUSLY.

I COULDA  WARN YOU TOO THAT ONCE YOU HAD EXPOSED CERTAIN MATTERS WHEN YOU WON THE T20 WORLD CUP EARLIER DIS YEAR, YOU HAD CROSSED THE RUBICON, THE DYE WAS CAST AND IT WAS ONLY A MATTER OF WHEN,NOT IF YOU WOULD, IN DE WORDS OF DONALD TRUMP, BE FIRED!

THE FACT THAT THE KING IS NAKED DOES NOT PRECLUDE THE KING FROM RULING IMPERIOUSLY FOR HOW DARE A COMMONER SPEAK AGAINST THE KING!

YUH COUNTRY HONOUR YOU BY GIVING THE STADIUM A PROPER NAME,THE DAREEN SAMMY STADIUM,GOD KNOWS SOME AH WE COULDN’T PRONOUNCE DE OTHER NAME ANYHOW AND IN SO DOING YUH COUNTRY GIVE THE LIE TO THE SAYING DAT A MAN IS NOT WITHOUT HONOUR SAVE IN HIS OWN COUNTRY.

IN ANY OTHER COUNTRY A MAN WHO HAD SUCCESSFULLY LEAD THE TEAM RATED AT #8 IN THE CRICKETING NATIONS, NOT ONCE BUT TWICE TO WIN THE COVETED T20 WORLD CUP AND STAND AT THE ZENITH OF DE SPORT WOULDA  BEEN HAILED AS AND CELEBRATED AS A HERO BUT THIS IS WEST INDIES CRICKET.

IN PRIVATE ENTERPRISE, A CEO WHO HAD TAKEN HIS COMPANY AGAINST FORMIDABLE ODDS AND COMPETITION TO DE TOP WOULD BE CELBRATED AND NO PASSING SLUMP IN PERSONAL PERFORMANCE COULD HAVE DETERMINED HIS FATE.

IN PRIVATE ENTERPRISE, A LEADER WHO DELIVERS,EVEN IF ABOUT TO RETIRE GETS A ROUSING SENDOFF AND A GOLDEN HANDSHAKE,NOT A 30 SECOND OR MORE PHONE CALL.HE IS CELEBRATED AND WINED AND DINED.
RESPECT IS 2 WAY, HOW CAN THOSE WHO TREAT YOU WITHOUT RESPECT EXPECT TO GAIN IT FROM THE REST OF WE? EH?
SADLY, ONCE AGAIN WE CARIBBEAN PEOPLE WILL PUT WE TAILS BETWEEN OUR LEGS, RANT AND RAVE FOR A FEW DAYS PUN CALL IN PROGRAMMES BUT THEN AS WE SAY IN TRINIDAD,BOIL DOWN LIKE BAJEE, THEY KNOW THAT AND SO WE LIKE IT SO!
WHEN WE TRULY LEARN DE POWER OF DE PEOPLE THE KING WILL BE DETHRONED BUT UNTIL THEN THE CHARADE GINE CONTINUE.
DARREN SAMMY, YOU ARE ONE OF MY CRICKETING HEROES, YOU ALWAYS LEAD BY EXAMPLE, YOU PLAYED WITH HEART AND GUTS AND DELIVERED FOR THE GUTLESS!
CONTINUE TO HOLD YUH HEAD UP HIGH, IN TIME SOME OF THE NONENTITIES WILL LIKE TOILET PAPER BE FLUSHED INTO OBSCURITY, BUT YOUR NAME GINE FOREVER BE REMEMBERED AS ONE OF THE SHINING LIGHTS ON SOME VERY DARK NIGHTS.

I MARKET VENDOR GONE FUH NOW,YOU HAVE A BLESSED AND A WONDERFUL DAY, YUH HEAR?
