Call Me Cudjoe.
A West Indian short story from the podcast, Parrotbeetie.
Before men and women belonged to nations, men and women belonged to days. It was God above who had made this decree, their absolute power enforcing it into law. Monday, called Jowda in God’s language, was the day that work started, that leaders were born. Men born on this day were named Cudjoe, but one would stand out from all the rest.
