De Reel Deal....Trinidad Sonnet

A Trinidad Sonnet dah is de bes
Ah nevah tort Ah'd live to see de day
Buh here it is an Ah bong to confess
It lookin good so now Ah goin to try
To write one in vernacular, okay?
Tho Ah eh sure dat dis one goin to fly
Ah anxious to see if dis ting will work;
Dis sonnet is ah new one, custom made
So dis is one effort Ah will not shirk
Ah goin to step up boldly to de plate
Ah only hope it goin to make de grade
Buh Ah tryin it still at any rate.
A Trinidad Sonnet dah is de bes
Ah anxious to see if dis ting will work.
