Jamaican Poetry: Is Jamaica due this?

Is Jamaica due this?
Crime and violence,
Is like saliva on our lips;

Are we so jaded and blind in the eye
That we have basked
In the rays of corruption, all this time;

Is Jamaica due this?
The shootings and killings,
To the world we have been remiss;

All has happen in a span of time,
Now proves that three generations
Have been born blind;

Jamaica is due this,
Is not the cause of it;

To each and every man is assigned the blame
When he turned a blind eye,
And made the power of his opinion, tame.
