    Am I the only one to see the poignant pathos and well-expressed cynicism and tongue-in-cheek in this superb poem? To me, your voice is as clear as a bell in this! (Report) Reply

    Great poem indeed, reassuring, many things will happen to make one worry in life so why worry? why should one stay worried? (Report) Reply

    So the only thing to be worried is 'Hurry' ? ?
    ...but, how can we ignore the surrounding matters like you said..?

    Andrew James if you believe this is utter drivel then you obviously haven't acquired any sense of empathy for people of poorer status - I would like to see a child write with such clarity and feeling. Admittedly, the grammar and lexis is unconventional but that is a clever way of representing the people to whom this poem applies. (Report) Reply

    drivel... evidence that english culture is falling into a cesspool of illiterate dunderheads... zephaniah's ouvre is empty headed drivel... he has little to say other than preachy diatribes imparted with trivial insights slapped together for mass consumption and appeal... most children write better poetry than this garbage...
