Indo-Guyanese Women Poets

Stanza 12

Beaumont — Had the law been in my hands.
And the cry of the coolies
Echoes around the land.
They came in droves
At the door of his office
Beseeching him to ease the yoke off their burden.
And Crosby struck in rage
Against the planters
In vain
He was stripped naked of his rights
And the cry of the coolies continued.
