Darowyn Origins: Mattie Rag meanings (Jamaican Mento) (74* d) RE: Origins: Mattie Rag meanings 26 Jul 11

"Cause 'im ear wan hog a chaw a piece a rag."
That seems to me to mean:-
Because he heard one hog had chewed a piece of rag.
Maybe a hog is a literal pig, or maybe a metaphorical one!
There doesn't seem to be any discussion of this line so far.
