Miss Lou styles up Ishawna

THE EDITOR, Sir:

Dancehall artiste Ishawna deserved all the backlash she got, after posting on Instagram, "Mi nuh dress inna tablecloth like Miss Lou." Kei Miller gave a classic response, in poetry, which has now gone viral online with thousands of likes.

I share the view that we have failed our youth terribly in terms of teaching them about the significance of our icons and heroes, our culture, civics and national pride. Here's Miller's poem:

"What a ting, Miss Matty,

It really bun me hawt,

Look how dis gyal guh style mi

frock as so-so table clawt!

"But me prefer wear mi table

cloth,

wid hat and glove and boot

dan put mi self pan Instagram

in buttu birthday suit!

"But mi naah get inna temper

Mi ah guh hole mi tung

For she nuh got nuh dress at all

For mi guh dress her dung!"
