Funky Chickens


Benjamin Zephaniah’s classic ‘Funky Chickens‘ bursts with vitality. His poetry steps from life experiences, like ‘Walking Back Home‘, to critical observations, as in ‘Protest Poets‘ and ‘All You Sea‘. Throughout the collection energy and purpose abound. His words leave stiletto marks of sound on the pages. They demand to be read, and said aloud:-

‘Thanks for the WORDS that do inspire/ And those words that burn like fire…’

Benjamin Zephaniah does not tread lightly. He engages his readers:- ”You ain’t got /nowhere to play,/ Just balconies/ And/ Motorways,’ Don’t/ worry/ Be happy.’ 

Benjamin Zephaniah’s environmentalism, humanity, background and empathy sing. ‘Funky Chickens’ is a heartfelt and necessary poetry collection that we recommend unequivocally.
