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,

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.

Elegy
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

Just Another Victim
by Zee K

The loneliness ate me away,
The doubt gave me away ;
My demons fighting through my walls,
Breaking them with all the will, loving the way I fall;
It's been a while since I cried,
Still, no one is ready to listen to the story of my side ;
Is there still hope for me,
Will I be able to smile like the daydream I see;
Or will I live in the same nightmare forever and ever,

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.

I Demand Justice For Ryan Gainer Death
by Christen Kuikoua

I demand Justice,
For the world's hatred, a blight,
Justice for the innocent's tragic plight,
Where evil prospers in the night,
Like shadows dark, obscuring light.

I demand Justice,
For black lives' suffering, deep and stark,
The violence's pain leaves a lasting mark,
Gunshots ring out, like a predator's bark,

Sustaining Progress: Love's Guiding Light
by Lukman Nurudeen Adeniyi

In the pursuit of sustainable progress:
Wholesome love, relationships, light the way;
The architects, they are, of reform.

Warmheartedness leaves an enduring white trace,
Their significance echoes—ever to stay,
Illuminate an indomitable force amidst storm!

They form the foundation of justice—
Indisputably, they bring harmony's soothing display;

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,
