An outstanding satire narrating the plight of the down trodden and urging them to be happy in spite of their worries and hardships and concluding that they may be happy due to worries about every thing in life. An out standing, modern poem of the Day.
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.
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...
eish what informs this anger and apparent subjectivity. is benjamin even thinking of English culture when he writes. i doubt that. some of us who write in English are second or third language users of that language. we get our messages across. you may keep your grammar. English is a conglomeration of languages really.
