Big, big scare in Glencoe, severed pig’s head lying in road! Nobody, including stray dogs and cobeaux, want to move the head, decorated with feathers, a nail and a black cloth (gosh!) tied around its mouth. They could be harmed, spiritually. Wonder how many of the neighbours say night prayers?
One wag, a policeman, recommends the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals be contacted. Does he eat fry chicken? Fry chicken establishments are apt to become important public areas for police. The AG has suggested that ID parades can take place at KFCs, no doubt whilst children are being read to during the NCG Bocas Lit Fest.
Several hours after discovery, the head was still titillating onlookers because workers at the Diego Martin Regional Corporation “had completed their 7am to noon shift.” It was finally removed almost 24 hours later. A resident paid corporation workers $40. Residents were then advised (you could not make this stuff up) to sprinkle puncheon rum and salt on the spot where the head lay in state and set the spot on fire. Having done this, all and sundry removed from the area for a spot of tea and cucumber sandwiches.
Mr Manning made an appearance. He bravely “braved” the inclement weather in the tray of a van in support of the PNM’s candidate for local government elections, a Mr Montano, (another one?), apparently known in San Fernando for producing J’Ouvert bands. One of his “plans” is to encourage the integration of his church with social activities. Would he have been brave enough to move the pig’s head?
