The word and at the start of the poem represents the continuation of the slave trade, this could also show the unfamiliarity the slaves have with the English language because they don't use and in the right context which could imply their isolation. It could also represent the amount of suffering they feel altogether, 'And limbo stick' It could be part of a long list of tortures they have received.
