Louise Bennett is a household name with all of my relatives. We grew up with Miss Lou and Mas Ron. We just have to think of Miss Lou and it generates a smile or laughter. God gave you to Jamaica and we appreciate you!

Thank you, Miss Lou.

ONCE UPON A TIME THERE WAS SWEET, SWEET JAMAICAN WOMAN WHO NAME MISS LOU WHO HAD MONEY AND BEAUTY TO KILL MEN.
THESE MEN TAUGHT THAT MISS LOU CAN ONLY WINE A DINE SO ONE DAY MISS LOU SAW ONE AND SAID HO SWEETHEART JUST GIVE ME BACK MY BEAUTY TONIGHT.
“IT IS GREAT TO MEET YOU MEN SHE SAID.”
SO ONE NEXT DAY COME AGAIN AND SHE SAW HIM AGAIN AND SHE SAID, “DARLING LET ME HOLD YOUR HANDS AND YOU DANCE WITH ME WHILE I PRAY TO GOD FOR THE GIFT YOU GAVE ME TODAY.” “NICE TO MEET YOU YOUNG MAN SHE SAID HONEY.”
AFTER SUDDENLY SHE DISAPPERED INTO A FLYING SAUCER AND TURN INTO A DUPPY FRYING PAN.
MISS LOU SAID, “BOY MEE NAH COME BACK HERE AGAIN AND ME WILL TAKE TODAY FOR MY LESSON.”
THE NEXT TIME SHE SAW SUN A SHINE OVER RAINBOW CLOUDS SHE SAID,” TODAY IS THE FIRST TIME I AM GOING TO SEE SUN, CLOUD, RAIN, FLOOD, FIRE AND RAINBOW.”
SO SHE SHE SAW A RING FLY IN THE SKY UP ABOVE WITH TWO QUEEN APPEREARED AROUND HER SO SHE SAID,” BOY THIS IS A MIRACLE AND GOD GIFT TO ME WITH MEN OF ALL CREATURES OF THE WORLD TO THINK OF”. THE DUPPY MAN SAID,” LAUGH MISS LOU LAUGH UNTIL EVERYTHING CRUSH UP MAN”
THIS MAN SAID MISS LOU THEN GIVE ME TEN SHILLING TO BUY A PATTY AND MORE MONEY TO PUT INTO MY BANK BOOK.” SHE SAID BOY YOU TO GREEDY AND ME DON’T WANT YOU NEITHER FOR MONEY OR LOVE.”
SHE SAID BYE, BYE MASTER I WILL LOVE YOU FOR TEN SHILLING YEARS MY DEAR BUT I WON’T LOVE YOU BECAUSE YOU TO CRAFTY WITH MONEY LAND AND WATER AND EVERYTHING IN THIS WORLD.”
WE BROKE UP AND WE HAD TELEPHONE CUT TOGETHER WITH KNIFE OFF EACH OTEHR HEAD BY TAIL SAW.
IN THE END MISS LOU BECAME RICH AND THE OLD MAN BECAME A PUPPY DOG DUPPY.
SHE HAD A HAPPY TIME TOGETHER WITH A POOR MAN DOG NAME NAN.

Dear Miss Lou, you have been such an inspiration to so many Jamaicans of all ages. I am an upcoming actress and would have loved they opportunity to work with you hearing all the stories about how sweet and caring you are towards your fellow actor. I have been blessed to work with great Jamaicans like yourself all of whom have worked with you; Charles Hyatt,Glen Campbell and Fae Ellington. thank you for your contributions to our beloved island you have left an indefinable mark on our heritage and culture and for that i want to thank you. I would love to contact you by email so i hope I’ll hear from you .
