The British
by Benjamin Zephaniah

Take some Picts, Celts and Silures
And let them settle,
Then overrun them with Roman conquerors.

Remove the Romans after approximately 400 years
Add lots of Norman French to some
Angles, Saxons, Jutes and Vikings, then stir vigorously.

Mix some hot Chileans, cool Jamaicans, Dominicans,
Trinidadians and Bajans with some Ethiopians, Chinese,

The Female Of The Species
by Rudyard Kipling

When the Himalayan peasant meets the he-bear in his pride,
He shouts to scare the monster who will often turn aside.
But the she-bear thus accosted rends the peasant tooth and nail,
For the female of the species is more deadly than the male.

When Nag, the wayside cobra, hears the careless foot of man,
He will sometimes wriggle sideways and avoid it if he can,
But his mate makes no such motion where she camps beside the trail -
For the female of the species is more deadly than the male.

An Unholy Sinner
by Nakul Bisht

“Who’s this they’re taking away?”
asked the young boy to his mum.
“It’s an unholy sinner
from a filthy little slum”.
“What sin did he commit?
For what does he yowl?”
“It’s a sin most inhuman,
dark and foul.”
“I don’t understand quite well.
Was it lust, was it greed?

Leaders of yesterday
by Nancy Altraide

Pain filled my soul as sorrow took over
I was in mourning
My wailing was heard in the East
The people in the North came to console me
The West came for condolences visit
and the south, I couldn't remember their task
I had lost a child, the son of my youth

My son was a man of valor
with the strength of the Lion

Norman And Saxon
by Rudyard Kipling

My son," said the Norman Baron, "I am dying, and you will be heir
To all the broad acres in England that William gave me for my share
When we conquered the Saxon at Hastings, and a nice little handful it is.
But before you go over to rule it I want you to understand this:—

"The Saxon is not like us Normans, His manners are not so polite.
But he never means anything serious till he talks about justice and right.
When he stands like an ox in the furrow with his sullen set eyes on your own,
And grumbles, "This isn't fair dealings," my son, leave the Saxon alone.

How can a man be so cruel?
by Esha Mahmood

Ask me what gushes
Red, bright, with my blood:
Wrath at the cruel beast!
Rage at the man so vicious!

Who eats a precious heart,
A soft, a loving heart.
To him a juicy piece of meat,
He sqeezes, tweaks and tears apart.

Don’t Complain to People Your Wound
by A A

A verse of poetry dazzled me
With its magnificence

Since it was penned,
My inner core
Has been reclining

It has become my motto
And emboldened me to append

Eventually, He Evens the Events…
by Ololade Raji

Even as we still feel like a feeble pawn in a chess of gluttony, yet, You made us resist the temptation of greed deeply rooted in an aroma of enticing betrayal

Events of recent months affirmed that the scorching of these black skins is an incandescent reflection of the deep dark shades of some souls

Even as Ayi Kwei Armah’s ‘Beautyful Ones Are Not Yet Born’ continues to bolster our disgust with injustice and will ultimately sharpen the ingrained desire for justness

Events of these last hours also affirmed that the cleansing of the malodourous souls are never awashed by an ocean of tears

Eventually, I pray the seeds of forgiveness sprout as Your torrent comes, as I am tired of writing the book of good in this library of evil. He will lead His people as I am indeed lost!
