Line Break - On-On Feet

Ah ent no writah ah tell ’em, but thay harassing meh fer weeks now, even callin’ meh "Ghostwriter". They waaah meh to write ah trash an’ the only ting I feel like writin’ is trash, about all a yuh!!

Christmas Party time, all of us ol’ boys and girls jus happy that afternoon…Christmas cheer in the air an’ ting! The ideah that we would get a nice ‘runner’s glow’ to go with as much booze that we could drink, and even a little more time and something an’ someone to wine on, (around Mahatma’s pool with a view, pappa- , and man, me and my Hashing buddies could barely contain weeselves. We don’t get that often! Once ah year ent…an’ we eh playin’! We guh wine on everything tonite!

So, thay axs us to stumble in deh Stumblin’ Bar on Aripiata Avenue aftah another nite ah limin’ with deee Hash Crew…two nites in a row. Some of the slouches stayed on limin’ (instead of running), up an down them little streets ah Woodbrook, St. Clair and Port of Spain (as planned by Diane and Martin). In fact, many ah us real jealous ah them fuh havin’ real nerve. They show up for dee hash and instead, decide tuh stay at dee bar to imbibe and watch football! What ah dreamy afternoon…fuhr them! As far as dee rest of us concerned, thay just gettin’ the annual Christmas Party started ah little early eh…and why not??? Thay smart! The rest ah us fools wuh just weavin’ our way up and down the same streets over and over, up to dee Savannah and back away, and up again, and back away, with a lot a confusion about whether or not "we On On" or in fact, it just "ah bit ah ol’ flour from last Monday run!"

I waz tireeeeed already, before we start!!! I sick, and my belly hurtin’ me too bad! I had to drag my arse up off meh stool in Stumbilin’ and stumble out; an’ ah pretend to do it with enthusiasm, because, yuh know, I was going to get real excited this evening. Ah, a little break (hehehehe), it pourin’! Maybe too much to go fuh a run! Yuh would think, but nah man! That Sheldon only countin’ down and sayin’, "rain or shine, we going in six minutes". During all dee twists and turns up this and thah street, all I looking for is a short cut that would get meh back tuh Stumblin’, but wouldn’t get me wearing that cold, nasty Pooftah t-shirt two times in ah row!

Boy, aftah one hour an’ a half of runnin’ (well, ah really walkin’ fass) in the hot sun, in blistering hot Port of Spain, I dyin’ an’ I int the only one, eh! Ah whole bunch ah them peepin’ down dee streets, an’ Mr. Mahatma teachin’ all the little wusses like me (an’ Toni too), where they go end up..little short cuts nah! Eh notting! Aftah all, is he lass run as Mathatma! I following he; he good at that! He ent using any more energy than he hah teh!!!

An’ Betty, she really getting on meh nerves dee whole time looking like a racin’ horse who jess get out ah the stables, fresh an’ ready to go fuh another 2 hours…prancin’ up and down with ah big smile on she face! Good fuh she!!! Not me, I dreamin’ ah all them beers I gonna drink when ah get back stumblin’ to Stumblin’!!! But I ben the cornah and I see that damn truck again with bloody Dune smilin’… all I wanna do is punch he in his bloody mouth to knock that grin off he face, but luckily this time, he had only beers in dee back dis time. Yeh man!!!

I bend the corner again…the home stretch, Taz behind me plottin’ how she go look in huh new Iron Lady get up for the next year an’ me dreading more torturin’. Then, low an’ behold, dee truck drive by again and who I spot hiding like a real Pooftah in dee back ah dee truck…Shauwna!!! Hehehehehehe!!! Is she, she gonna wear that nasty t-shirt an’ I think Dune and he partnah should wear it too.

Ah gone! I done! It was a nice run afterallJ….I lyin’!

Line Break - On-On Feet

The Handover

It was two weekends before Christmas and all was in place

Everyone waited with baited breath for Taz to take Arthur’s place

So to Arthur’s place we all made our way to witness the evening’s affair

Hash Christmas party, of course everyone wanted to be there

Alas for some it was not to be as room was limited for the affair

So dinner was catered by Richard to some of the committee’s dismay

But he passed the test with flying colours so the committee had no more to say

Then came time for Santa who arrived with much fanfare

He made his way to his pride of place but we never saw his reindeer

So from his list he called out names to come sit with him

And so it was he called out names amid the party din

Gerrard he called and gave to him an id for Gerry Soogrim

Sheldon got a dog collar for his exploits in Tobago of female tracking

Next was Curtis who for his broken heart got a rag to wipe his tears

Then came Shawna who got a man to satisfy her needs with care

Randall was next and to make up for height he was presented with a ladder

Then surprise surprise up came a lovely lady who was his outside daughter

Eric was absent but Santa declared he got him a tin of Slim Fast

Ashe was next his present was not found so the helpers told him to pass

Betty came forward received her present and everyone asked what is that

She unwrapped the present to reveal for her chest she got Fix a Flat

Reed came forward and was not pleased it was not rum, it was beer

Santa then told him if you want to be a hasher you have to drink beer

Marlay came forward with much apprehension wondering what could it be

And so he unwrapped his gift from Santa ,a list Catering staff Employment Agencies

Next came Corkie Lorin and Hanif all three recovering from injury

To them was presented a million dollar CLICO policy

And so it was there were no more presents so Santa’s exit would be a cinch

So right there before our very eyes Santa turned into the Grinch

Soon after as we stood and gazed the Grinch waved his magic wand

And so it was that Arthur appeared with the Parrot in Hand

Next came the Iron Lady who made a grand entrance

Preceded by winged ladies who put on a mini dance

Then on she came dressed in red and all her finery

Men tried to touch but were kept back by her ugly mean security

Arthur looked on very much like General Custer in his last stand

But before he could think or even blink Taz had the parrot in her hand

So parrot in left hand and mike in the other she made her maiden speech

Never forgetting to remind us that she is the Iron Lady who looks phenomenal on the beach

She then announced her cabinet which had new ministries among them

Someone said UNC much of the old guard like she P oN theM

She presented Mahashma with his plaque and a deya and we did not know what it meant

But in her presentation to him she explained that the deya was for enlightenment

And so the party started hashers all having a good time, a really good place to be

And then very much to our surprise on came Myron B

His hits he performed for us song after song after song

Hashers needed very little encouragement as they sang along

And so it was the night was winding down to an end

Some hashers made their way home and others got cozy with a friend

Another Hash Christmas party is now a memory

So we turn our thoughts to 2012 wondering

what kind of year will it be
