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.
