Funny Poetry - Me ain't have no money to go to Antigua

Updated on August 5, 2012

We only went down town as a window shopper

And I mistakenly took you to Island Hopper

You saw a lovely hat, bag, shoes and dress in de window

Now me ain’t got no money to go to Antigua

Last month you had you face all up in a putter

So I was forced to ask “ honey what is the matter”

Only to hear we have not gone out in forever

So I took you Marriot for breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Now Me aint got no money to go to Antigua

Another Jerusalem Feast Day is around the corner

You say honey “You aint think me hair could look a little better”

So I was forced to take you to de hairdresser

And had to sit down there and wait forever

Now Me aint got no money to go to Antigua

Another year of Activities has pass over

And what a time we had together

Plus, you went to Women Conference and Camp in the Winter

Now Me aint got no money to go to Antigua

Me pocket empty Me down in de gutter

Pastor say “ Brothers man you all got to get better”

But dis woman I have may the Good Lord Bless her

But every ting she see mek she eye glitter

So Me aint go no money to go to Antigua

      You're a poet for real. Keep up the good work and do more on HubPages.

      hey shoforcall, thanks for your comments. Antigua is a very beutiful island. I'm happy you got a little experience of the Caribbean life.

      Hi JM, Really enjoyed this poem. It is funny - but oh so true for many. Money burns a hole in their pocket. Or should we say, their wants burn a hole in their pocket.

      PS I have a daughter living on Montserrat. I visited there just over a year ago and got to stay a night in Antigua!!! Also used to go on holiday there many moons ago.
