Man like bag-a-wire should burn if Fire, the betrayer of Marcus Garvey.
Bag-a-wire is a heathen who betrayed Marcus Garvey to be killed by babylon. He was a skinny lanky man, so that is why he is called Bag-a-wire (bag of wires)

I just looked around and somebody said
Marcus Garvey cursed the man to walk up and down with (or in - if going by comments of others) a bag of wire. He was seen so, and thus became known as 'Bag-o'-wire'. A fitting decree it would seem when you consider the amount of wire surrounding penal institutions or used as boundary fencing!
The person who wrote that said they learned it from their mother, who is Jamaican. The reason I mentioned in I previous Reasoning I heard from RasTafarI people from Jamaica and other islands.

Ark I, let me thank you for the correction. well done. ever since i was a small child i knew Jesus Christ is God, when i grew older, i heard of Marcus Mossiah Garvey and instantly, i belived in HIM. His word i took as prophecy which led me to H.I.M. Emperor Haile Selassie I. Nevertheless ive not searched for His life story apart from what can be found in encyclopaedia. Jah love.
