Once Upon a Country

Once upon a time in the land of wood and water  there were two elite coed schools – Driva and Sista P High Schools. These schools served as a feeder to the University of Duke Street.
Now every four years these two schools competed in a national championship, which involved a cross-country race thru the length and breadth of the country to select the new head boy or girl and prefects. It is this select group that would then attend The University.
In addition to the regular school curriculum students also had to study civics, history, visioning, deportment, inter personal relationships and culture to ensure that upon graduation they were well rounded individuals worthy of acceptance to The University.
Alas, just like everywhere else in the world the standards at these schools began to fall and instead of producing civil, articulate visionaries, they were now mass producing loud mouthed boors who upon entering The University forgot what their role and purpose was and reduced The University to a playground where they spent copious hours playing sey feh and tit for tat.
It came to pass that the elders fed up with the behaviour of these students called an extraordinary council meeting to come up with solutions to curb the behaviour of these unruly children.  Every elder from the fourteen parishes was invited to attend. They were asked to reason with the members of their community and bring to the meeting their thoughts, ideas and measures to be implemented to stem the students’ behaviour which was now seeping into the wider society.
After weeks of gut wrenching soul searching analysis and reasoning the elders came up with the following actions to be immediately implemented…
Since this is our collective reality make your own ending…  Selah
