Funky Chickens

What can poems be about? Flowers? Sunsets? Rainbows? Oh, come on! Boundary-busting rap poet Benjamin Zephaniah reckons they’re about WAY more than that. You know, like vegetables, or chickens, the Queen, or sewage, or racism, or pollution, or even the murder of a cat. Open your mind (and then your mouth) to a new kind of poetry!
