    Paul Keens-Douglas was born in September of 1942 in San Juan, Trinidad, but spent his early childhood in Grenada where he attended Presentation Boys College.

    He has been writing and performing his own works since 1974. He holds an Honours Degree in Sociology, diplomas in Radio and Television Production and Broadcasting, and has done post graduate work at the University of the West Indies, Mona, Jamaica. His awards include the Humming Bird Silver for Culture, and the Zora Neale Hurston Award.

    For the past twenty years he has been a leading exponent of the oral traditions in a variety of fora, of which his Carnival Talk Tent has become a landmark. A self-published author, he has to his credit seven volumes of work, twelve albums and three videos. The remarkable thing about his work is its wide appeal, an appeal that covers all classes and age-groups.

    As one writer puts it, " Paul Keens-Douglas celebrates our rich cultural amalgam and Caribbean landscapes like nobody else does. With a bubbling well of humour, humanity and heart, he reaches into the innermost crevices of ourselves and our cultures, and brings us back to joy, feeling, to the real sweetness of our societies."

    The following poems have been reproduced here with the kind permission of Paul Keens-Douglas and are copyrighted . They may not be reproduced without the expressed permission of the author.

    And when he spoke @ our school, he emphasize Trinidad.
