Due to the response I received on the post I did on GOD, I have decided to ask a very unusual question. The woman has been vilified through out time as the Harlot, the Scarlet Woman, the Jezebel, The She Devil, and many other titles. We are good for certain things but are crucified for others. She is Major cook and Chief bottle washer, she is the teacher of the household, because of her role of house wife, so the children learns how to wash his face and brush his teeth, he learns how to use the proper knives and forks, and never to place his elbows at the table, good manners are taught by mommy and so forth. The man brings home the bacon,he is the war Hero/Defender/Bill payer/The man and head of household. His role is an honorable one. We have all heard stories in whatever culture or ethnic groups about the woman placing roots/Witchcraft/Obeah on the man. Heck I have even heard that the late Anna-Nicole Smith moved to the Bahamas because she was locked in a Spiritual war with her late husbands children and that is what caused the demise of her along with her son (allegedly). Remember The son had died after he had won the first round of case, which she appealed.
It was even suggested that Angelina Jolie captured Brad Pitt through the act of Tying…lol…allegedly. Miss Will, the “Jezebel” who you have been reading about a lot on this site, had a “niece” named Janet, who she brought from the country to live with her. ( now that I am grown I suspect the relationship, that Miss Will had with the so-called niece). Janet was very promiscuous and all who were virgins, and those who were looking for a quick lay, the Bishop, Deacon, Pastor, the Elder of the Church, the Fire Men, the Shopkeeper, the Seamstress, the Higgler who sold her good in front of Mr. He”s shop, Man Royal Cherry, the fat brown lady who worked in “bun dung” shop, Shoey the Shoe maker, Cookie, the Chef over at Big Daddy’s Restaurant, the Butcher,the Baker the Candlestick maker, all had their way with Janet.
She would have made Blanche Devereux proud. There was a Police man who lived around the road whose name was Taylor, he was my father’s friend. He would hang out in the yard next door with the men and smoke ganja and gamble all the time when he was off duty….this is done in Jamaica…. don’t be shocked!!! Police and Soldiers in Jamaica operate very differently…Taylor got a piece of Janet although it wasn’t hard and certainly of no surprise, and so because he was single and had a steady job, Miss Will urged her to “breed” which she did. Of course Taylor wanted nothing to do with the raffle ticket of a belly that Janet had caught and was claiming that it was his, the whole community were making jokes at Taylors expense. I remember clearly my Mother telling Miss Ruth who terrorized us children with her nightly visits to our verandah every striking night even on a Sunday, ( we didn’t like her, she was mean), that Miss Will and Janet were preparing a soup out in the back yard for one week, and that soup was being prepared to tie Taylor. I even remember climbing up on my sisters high chair and witnessing the Obeah man having sex with Janet as part of the plan to insert what ever into Janet so that Taylor couldn’t leave her. This was told to Miss Ruth after we told our mother what we saw the man do to Janet. We left Jamaica before all hell broke loose, but Miss Ruth did call my mother in America and told her that Taylors Mother took him to Saint Mary and they loosed him, and when he came back to Kingston he gave both Miss Will and Janet a solid beating within inches of their lives and never looked back on them again.
So the unusual question I would like to ask everyone is after reading Sharon and Donovan’s story on the post titled BAD SINTING, and then again about what Janet did to Taylor…….DO MEN TIE WOMEN?? ….. COME MEK WE REASON!!!!!
