A poet called Benjamin Zephaniah

I was looking to join a community about Benjamin Zephaniah and was shocked to find there wasn't one! But now I've created one =) So unless someone has created a community like this but didn't list any interests, I am happy to announce that this is the first ever Benjamin Zephaniah livejournal community! Yay!!

So far I haven't felt the need to make up any dumb rules that are just common sense. So let's join, post about Zephaniah, and have fun =)

Were women,
I used to think police
Were men,
I used to think poets
Were boring,
Until I became one of them."
