Comments about Everybody Is Doing It by Benjamin Zephaniah

  • Dr Tony BrahminDr Tony Brahmin (10/31/2020 10:52:00 PM)

    Inn the Punjab they Bhangra
    How they dance Kathak in India
    Over in Guatemala
    They dance the sweet Marimba,
    Even foxes dance a lot..
    dance of life, dance forms and cultures
    a fine poem. tony

    They do the Jig in Ireland

    When they can find time to." a very fine poem. tony
