One land - One people - Trinidad and Tobago

Where did all the thinkers go? - Clinton Anthony Commings

This is a sketchy pencil drawing of Trinidad and Tobago's first Prime Minister, Eric Williams which is located opposite the headquarters of the Party in power. More ironically Mr. Williams formed it. Yet a graffiti artist thinks otherwise of the present leadership, and the faint outline of the "Father of the Nation" is the ghost in its shadow.

Eric Williams had envisioned the small nation as an united peoples brought to here by the circumstances of the times, and having the great potential to move forward as a new Independent Republic.

The graffiti artist, Clinton Anthony Commings asks since his death twenty six years ago, "Where did all the thinkers go?" And he is reflecting on the precarious antics that seem to plague the people that represent Trinidad and Tobago at its present time in history. -thebookmann
