Angel of Death

Baby bird fell out of it's nest. RIP.


 
Angel of Death
is soaring high
Angel of Death
draweth nigh

It's wings of death
stretch across the sky
Seeking victims
Do not ask why

Swoosh, it dives
Loss of a hundred lives

Swoosh, it dives
Loss of a thousand lives

Swoosh, it dives
Loss of a million lives

The leaders fight
But can't make a stand
The stench of death
Blows across the land

Angel of Death
Forever will fly
The people cry
"We die! We die!"

Angel of death
Has no time to spend
This is the end
This is the end

Florence Stall

 
 Florence's fruit and vegetable roadside stall, west Bay. St., Nassau, Bahamas. Tourists love it.
I stopped by a while ago for a dozen dillys(sapodilla), one of my favourite native fruits. They were firm and sweet, perfect ripeness.
 

 Here we have (l-r) pumpkins, tangerines and 2 avocados on the table tops, more tangerines in a box, then boxes of red peppers, green sweet peppers, yellow goat peppers, more tangerines in a box with 2 cucumbers and a mango, ripe bananas leaning on the box and bananas hanging by the bunch.

On another table below we have containers of grits, and what looks like ground red hot peppers and salt, good for seasoning fish. There's a ripe pineapple, and containers of tamarind sauce, a sweet desert. In front are stacked sweet dilly's(sapodilla).

Over on the table on the right are homemade bottled tomatoes for use in cooking. Stop by when you visit us.
