War Is Never Over
by Cecil L. Harrison

War is never over
Thought the treaties may be signed
The memories of the battles
Are forever in our minds

War is never over
So when you welcome heroes home
Remember in their minds they hold
Memories known to them alone

The Fallen Elm
by John Clare

Old elm that murmured in our chimney top
The sweetest anthem autumn ever made
And into mellow whispering calms would drop
When showers fell on thy many coloured shade
And when dark tempests mimic thunder made -
While darkness came as it would strangle light
With the black tempest of a winter night
That rocked thee like a cradle in thy root -
How did I love to hear the winds upbraid
Thy strength without - while all within was mute.

Freedom is colorfully alive
by Sylvia Ochieng

Darkness engulfs, strangling every breath of hope
Restricting any kind of motion, muting every single cry
No color, No beauty, vagueness maps its scope
But his reign can still be curtailed

His arch nemesis wastes not its golden beams
The earth lays its crown down compliant with her blinding glow
It must be a crime to be this gloriously oppressive
But her elegance still sets gracefully in a romantic symphony

The Mores
by John Clare

Far spread the moorey ground a level scene
Bespread with rush and one eternal green
That never felt the rage of blundering plough
Though centurys wreathed spring's blossoms on its brow
Still meeting plains that stretched them far away
In uncheckt shadows of green brown, and grey
Unbounded freedom ruled the wandering scene
Nor fence of ownership crept in between
To hide the prospect of the following eye
Its only bondage was the circling sky

Letters From A Man In Solitary
by Nâzım Hikmet

1
I carved your name on my watchband
with my fingernail.
Where I am, you know,
I don't have a pearl-handled jackknife
(they won't give me anything sharp)
or a plane tree with its head in the clouds.
Trees may grow in the yard,
but I'm not allowed
to see the sky overhead...

A Birds Cry for Freedom
by Saleh Ben Saleh

I have been encaged all my life for mans pleasure and fun,
my precious life had sadly ended before it even begun.

In human terms I have been enslaved so man could hear my song.
Behind the bars I am to stay in a place I don’t belong.

On saddened tunes I hop and play as I sing a moaners song,
I am just a pet and so they say in a world of greedy strong.

I seem amused to some surprised but deep I hide my cries.

alone and happy
by Miki Vermeulen

I cannot be alone,
And I cannot be bored.
Does that mean I like people's company?
Or am I just good at faking a smile,
And getting things done?

People say I have the best smile,
But is it real?
Am I really happy?
Or do I just lie to everyone?

My Flat - 6th-7th January 2024
by Gilligan Snolepart

Sitting in my own flat
MY flat
The coziness. The quiet!
With two floors, a spare bathroom
And no mortgage on it
Go fuck yourself Generation Rent!
What an achievement hey
I worked hard to get there
And when the mail comes through
It is for me, just me

Sonnet 08: Celebrating Black Grandeur
by Christen Kuikoua

In liberty's realm, we bear a cross of might,
Our skin, a testament to trials that tower high.
Injustice, a tempest, a loss that rages in the night,
Yet, in our hearts, resilience roars like thunder in the sky.

Racism, a monstrous shadow, a venomous haze,
A brutal echo of the world's scornful refrain.
Yet, we soar above the maze, ablaze,
Every scar transformed, a phoenix's triumphant gain.
