Carnival....Trinidad Sonnet

Let the carnivals now begin in Trinidad
Uplifting hearts having tremendous fun
Dancing to rhythmic notes scantily clad
Crazy is the rhythm of kettle drums beat
Within the heatwaves of an Islands sun
Inhabitants enjoying fun upon the street
It is time to chase the bad spirits away
Brightness are the colours of laughter
Happiness shall be the order of the day
Smiling faces are what they love to see
Enjoying the celebration here and after
For this is where all nations ought to be
Let the carnivals now begin in Trinidad
It is time to chase the bad spirits away.
