Dis Poetry

Dis poetry is like a riddim dat drops
De tongue fires a riddim dat shoots like shots
Dis poetry is designed fe rantin
Dance hall style, big mouth chanting,
Dis poetry nar put yu to sleep
Preaching follow me
Like yu is blind sheep,
Dis poetry is not Party Political
Not designed fe dose who are critical.
Dis poetry is wid me when I gu to me bed
It gets into me dreadlocks
It lingers around me head
Dis poetry goes wid me as I pedal me bike
I’ve tried Shakespeare, respect due dere
But did is de stuff I like.

Dis poetry is not afraid of going ina book
Still dis poetry need ears fe hear an eyes fe hav a look
Dis poetry is Verbal Riddim, no big words involved
An if I hav a problem de riddim gets it solved,
I’ve tried to be more romantic, it does nu good for me
So I tek a Reggae Riddim an build me poetry,
I could try be more personal
But you’ve heard it all before,
Pages of written words not needed
Brain has many words in store,
Yu could call dis poetry Dub Ranting
De tongue plays a beat
De body starts skanking,
Dis poetry is quick an childish
Dis poetry is fe de wise an foolish,
Anybody can do it fe free,
Dis poetry is fe yu an me,
Don’t stretch yu imagination
Dis poetry is fe de good of de Nation,
In de morning
I chant
In de night
I chant
In de darkness
An under de spotlight,
I pass thru University
I pass thru Sociology
An den I got a dread degree
In Dreadfull Ghettology.
Dis poetry stays wid me when I run or walk
An when I am talking to meself in poetry I talk,
Dis poetry is wid me,
Below me an above,
Dis poetry’s from inside me
It goes to yu

I have a new love in the form of Kiko’s long lasting eyeshadow sticks. Buy HERE for 6.90 GBP.


Being the lazy person that I am, cream eyeshadows are a makeup bag staple because no matter how little time I have to apply my eye makeup or how little will I have to faff about with complimenting colours, cream eyeshadows always deliver a polished, I-put-in-the-effort look. I’m really impressed with Kiko’s latest eyeshadow offering so far. They’re very highly pigmented and blendable, have the right amount of shimmer without being sparkly and have a creamy consistency when applied that dries down to a crease-proof non-budge wash of colour. Best of all, the applicator serves as brush and my finger serves as a blending tool; laziness doesn’t come much easier. Will the phrase one-swipe wonder ever catch on? Should I copyright it now?


The two shades I picked up are 38, Golden Taupe which is a shimmery brown with a hints of lilac and grey and 07, Golden Beige which is like a slightly darker take on a champagne highlighter. Inevitably, I spent ages deliberating on which colours to plump for because the shade range is absolutely spot-on. I was itching to grab 34, Pearly Rose Quartz which is such a unique dusky-candy pink; I’ve actually included a picture of the swatch below and the more I look at it the more I want to head back to Kiko and get it!

From the packaging to the range of neutral, brown-toned shades, all finished with a metallic sheen, Kiko’s eyeshadow sticks look very similar to Bobbi Brown’s Long Wear Cream Shadow Sticks. I feel they might be a potential dupe? Let me know if you’ve tried either the Bobbi Brown or the Kiko eyeshadow sticks and if you think they’re dupe-worthy.

On a side note, anyone who’s read any of my older posts might know that I’ve been taking roaccutane for my skin and I’m just coming up to my final few weeks. How time flies! I’m thinking about writing a post on it soon so keep your eyes peeled. Hope you’ve had a fab weekend and you’re all relaxing in PJ’s watching Disney movies.
