Text

Start: In the islands, where I come from, there is still slavery there. My master ‘dere he call me Shakespeare so to mock me, ‘cause I don’t speak the way he do.

[... … …]

End: This is the way the Griot works. This is what he does. If Shakespeare was a black man, he would be a Griot. So, I say, though my master mock me, it be no mock to me.
