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.

by Dylan Thomas

Too proud to die; broken and blind he died
The darkest way, and did not turn away,
A cold kind man brave in his narrow pride

On that darkest day, Oh, forever may
He lie lightly, at last, on the last, crossed
Hill, under the grass, in love, and there grow

Young among the long flocks, and never lie lost
Or still all the numberless days of his death, though

Great Are The Myths
by Walt Whitman

GREAT are the myths--I too delight in them;
Great are Adam and Eve--I too look back and accept them;
Great the risen and fallen nations, and their poets, women, sages,
inventors, rulers, warriors, and priests.
Great is Liberty! great is Equality! I am their follower;
Helmsmen of nations, choose your craft! where you sail, I sail,
I weather it out with you, or sink with you.

Great is Youth--equally great is Old Age--great are the Day and

So Long
by Walt Whitman

TO conclude--I announce what comes after me;
I announce mightier offspring, orators, days, and then, for the
present, depart.

I remember I said, before my leaves sprang at all,
I would raise my voice jocund and strong, with reference to

When America does what was promis'd,
When there are plentiful athletic bards, inland and seaboard,

No Rat Is Indeed Above The Law
by Hébert Logerie

No rat is indeed above the law
Justice must be blind, fair, equal and raw
For all, in a democratic society
We are angry and fed-up with the glaring hypocrisy
Where the poor are treated wrongfully or unfairly
And the rich get away absolutely scot-free
With heinous crimes, with murder and theft
Many innocent people are put to death
In arbitrary, prejudicial and unusual fashion
And the red-handed culprits are, in their mansion

A Nation Of Cowards
by Hébert Logerie

Powerful words,
Truthful words,
Honest words,
Brave words;
This is exactly what the Doctor orders,
For a nation, who's trying to fight the horrors
Of blatant racism,
Unfairness, injustice,
Nepotism and sexism.
A man of Peace,

It Ensures Fairness, It Upholds the Law
by Oscar Auliq-Ice

Justice is a force that stands tall,
A beacon of hope for one and all,
It sees no color, no race, no creed,
And knows no boundaries or limits to heed.

Justice is the light that guides us through,
The darkest hours, the troubles we brew,
It lifts us up, it gives us strength,
And helps us triumph over every length.

by Ahmet Yalcinkaya

ich sage zu mir, ob ich die Welt aus den Fugen raten soll,
wenn es mir einfällt

andernfalls verliere ich mein Verstand
auf die Trägheit der Verwandten mit Coca-Cola in ihren Händen,
auf die Trägheit der Freunde, der Vertrauten, der Kollegen
ich werde verrückt auf die Trägheit meiner Liebe, meiner Wut,
meines Wissens, meiner Ignoranz,
auf meiner Stirn sind Etikette, die ich in der Entwicklungsschüssel gelöffelt habe,
ich werde verrückt auf die Trägheit meines sehenden Auges, hörenden Ohres…

Two sides to every story
by Sharon Morgan

Two sides to every story; this is what we always say
He said she said, he thought, she thought,
Two ears to hear and one mouth to speak
Secrets will leak
Gossip will speak.

Truth becomes distorted as each lie is supported
Building blocks of communication
Become formidable walls of silence
