Dominica: Paradise Lost?

Caribbean Man calls Dominica “a beautiful Caribbean island [where] you can live naturally”…but there is a long list of challenges.

  • Alisha

    Hate has burned a gaping hole;
    The rancid reek of charring flesh
    Is dancing on my very soul.
    And as the rising fumes enmesh
    My crumpled heart, I play the role
    Of crabby fart, gassing off
    A diatribe, bleeding out a
    Bitter part: an ugly twisted man.
    i hate what Dominica Our Nature Isle has become
    i hate
    i hate
    i hate Dominica
