Heavenly shades falling upon him?

“Mout tar ent guitar.”
A Guyanese saying.
Perhaps our Prime Minister might say: Ego venit locutus sum et pollicitus sum. This, Google tells me, is: I came, I spoke I promised.
I am open to correction, since I left my Latin loitering in the Hall of Harrison.
The Prime Minister probably won’t say, however, that some people thought that the Democratic Labour Party election manifesto of 2008 promised “heaven on earth”. He might say however that Barbados has become heaven – a roundabout heaven.
For every problem there seems to be a roundabout: from Alexandra to Boarded Hall, from Barack to Warrens, from Guyanese to Gertz (proposed roundabout). You name it, they go round (about) it.
The Prime Minister is also quite right to dismiss the recent Cadres poll, since he has really to think more about his own political career and to wonder if this song holds any validity: Heavenly shades of night are falling, it’s twilight time . . . .

What is your take on Owen Arthur bowing out of elective politics? Is he going at the right time, too soon, or should he have bowed out before?
