The art of funk



Dis poetry is like a riddim dat drops
De tongue fires a riddim that shoots like shots
Dis poetry is designed fe rantin
Dance hall style, Big Mouth chanting,
Dis poetry nar put yu to sleep
Preaching follow me
Like yu is blind sheep,
Dis poetry is not Party Political
Not designed fe dose who are critical . . .
I've tried Shakespeare, respect due dere
But dis is de stuff I like.-- Benjamin Zephaniah.
