Good day to one and all, I pray that today will be a good day for everyone, and may Esu not disturb your lives today, do not forget to mention him in your prayers, or if you have him give him palm oil and some omi tutu, cool water.
The Yoruba people of South Western Nigeria where the wonderful traditional practice of Ifa/Orisha comes from, are among some of the wisest people I know. The practice which includes, never neglecting a deity they call Esu (Eshu), but always feeding/appeasing him so that our lives will not be disturbed, as is his job among human beings is brilliant, read here.
I would like to vent about crimes against small, innocent, defenseless children. What kind if a person would molest, rape,seduce, torture or kill little children.When they are discovered of their wrong doing, what ought to be done to these useless monsters? What could prompt, no matter how cruel a person, to want to sodomize a child? Should any clinical diagnosis be an excuse for them? Some may say that they are crazy, but not everyone who has does this vile and wicked act to a child is crazy, some feign mental illness when caught.
When I was a small girl in Jamaica, I remember I was outside next door to my house on a Sunday night around 8 pm, sitting at one of the card tables with my little friend Claudia. It had rained earlier in the day, so the men who usually gambled in the yard including my father had moved the gambling indoors. Claudia was the daughter of one of the men whose mother owned the yard, and she was visiting her father. We sat at the table trying to play dominoes, like little girls, small and innocent playing and giggling, dampness from the rainfall earlier was all around us.
There was a young man in the neighborhood named Bunny, a vagrant of sorts, normal quiet and who bothered no one, he had been off his rockers for a while, and was well known in the neighborhood as mad man Bunny, some people called him by another name, which was bouy, this is the closet I can spell the name for you, as he was crazy according to everyone and would walk around shouting, bouy! oie!, skoie! He was brother to two of the regulars in the gambling yard, Boy Blue and an alleged rapist named Berger,(how the hell do I remember these things?).
I remember as Claudia and I sat playing, not realizing that danger loomed near, innocent as God created us, we laughed while playing our mock game of Domino, having a good time as children, our sweet laughter permeating the cool night air, echoing between the soft gentle breeze, ( I am not being frilly in my writing, this is how I actually remember it). Bunny walked up to us, we had no idea he was around, we had seen on one outside with us. He lifted Claudia up from her seat and walked her over to the ping pong table, (table tennis, Claudia began screaming, we were about five years old at least I was, Claudia was perhaps one year older) laid her down and began unbuckling his belt, Claudia was screaming at this point, and I sprung into action, because somehow I knew this was danger.
I ran to the house which was filled with men gambling, I got in and found her father quickly, his name was Lance. I guess I was as Jamaica people would say “prime” for my age,because I know exactly what to tell him and I will tell you exactly what I told him. I ran to him and he bent his ear to me as I indicated I wanted to tell him something, the place was noisy with shouting men gambling. I tipped on my toes and whispered to Lance, speaking in my Jamaica dialect and in my innocence I whispered “Bunny outside ah F**K Claudia! I do not remember what happened from then, all I knew was that Lance shouted and all ran outside, and my daddy lifted me up and took me home. I have never forgotten that.
Now Bunny was crazy, but there are many people who are in their right mind but with a sickening fetish for small children. Some will say, but if they have the desire to want to have sex with children then they are indeed crazy, I say no, I will not give them an excuse, many of them function in their daily lives, being husbands, father, sons, wives, mothers, priests, pastors, Imams!. I know I vented about this before in other posts, but this is to show you all how passionate I feel about this. I love children and I feel we ought to protect these innocent babies from this oh so brutish world!
