Calypso Tent 

Subba Rao 

“Longtime nah see you,” said Daddy. 

“Yeah man almost 35 years,” Juggernaut shook Daddy's shoulders 

as if he was shaking Indian Goose Berry tree to drop the fruits to the 

ground. 

Daddy appeared happy to Juggernaut's gesture. 

“So you came back to the island for good nah.” 

“Yeah man, there is no place like Trinidad.” 

“Remember Doc and Roy, both dead now.” 

“Sure man, at Roy's rum shop I had good time liming with you, 

Esau, Doc and Lucksy.” 

“You still writing calypso?” Juggernaut was curious. 

“Boy, calypso lyrics keep pouring into my mind all the time, 

may be my mind is sick.” 

“Let me hear your new calypso,” Juggernaut made himself 

comfortable sitting on the roadside concrete culvert. 

Daddy started singing his calypso waving his hand like a 

teacher in a classroom. 

Fixin, Fixin Match fixin Bad for the sports 

Fixin, fixin Nitrogen fixin Good for soil and crops 

Fixin, fixin, Match fixin, Bad for marriage 

Fixin, fixin, Pizza toppings Green peppers, black olives, onions and
mushrooms With few rings of pepperoni 

Fixin, fixin Hamburger toppings Slices of tomato, onion, jalapenos and
cheese Good for soul 

“Boy, I love the catch phrase ‘fixin, fixin'.” “This calypso 

sounds good on steel band you know; it could be a contender for Road 

March title too,” Juggernaut started jumping up and down from the 

culvert. 

“I am glad you like it man.” “You remember the calypso I wrote 

longtime ago.” Daddy was not bashful. 

“You mean “Caroni Women.” “Has any calypsonian pick up your 

lyrics to sing?” 

“No, not to my knowledge,” “May be I will start singing my own 

calypso,” Daddy looked serious. 

“Where?” 

“I open my own calypso tent at Eastern end of the island.” 

“It is expensive to open a calypso tent.”
