You getting there, but you still not explain "eye pass".
It Goes along with strew teeth.
Alright I had to google eye pass just to be certain I capture all the nuances of the term but please tell me what is strew teeth. :confused

Eye-pass is the quintessentially Guyanese term which basically means disrespect. There are of course no written rules governing its usage. However, the methodology of usage usually signifies the level of disrespect perceived by the user. In the following examples, the bold lettering indicates the point of emphasis in the statement:

This is eye-pass -- Routine disrespect. Usually non-threatening.
Yuh eyes pass me -- An adult chastising a moderately disrespectful child.
Yuh tekkin' yuh eyes and pass me -- An adult chastizing a very disrespectful child.
This eye-pass gat to done NOW!! -- Bloodshed a distinct possibility in the near future

You guyanese and you dont know what is eye pass? do you know what a prakash is? how bout simotoo? do you know what nara is?
I left Guyana as a child so compared to you I guess I am Guyanese lite. Lol but yes I know what is eye pass I just wanted to make sure I explained it properly. I know nara - When I was small, my grandmother put a bit of rice in a cloth and lit it then inverted a glass over it on my belly as treatment for that.

prakash and simotoo I have no idea what that means
