Solving Problems - Poem by Leonard Dabydeen

Wake up this morning


for birds to twitter

I hear the cacophony of guns

and the cry of anger

and rich expletives

bellowing from the bowels of hate

and the whack of batons

thumping flesh

fumigating in blood

I lift my arms not with glee

but to gyrate in protest

a street fighter

with bricks and stones

catapulting to break some bones

a dance forever

for the revolution.
