    Rap along with Benjamin Zephaniah to the beat of his unique performance poetry. Hip, zany and streetwise, this is an excellent collection from one of our leading modern poets. The poems are taken mainly from the books Talking Turkeys and Funky Chickens. (The audio versions vary slightly from the written text in Benjamin's books.)

    In the early 1980s when punks and Rastas were on the streets protesting about unemployment, homelessness and the National Front, Benjamin’s poetry could be heard at demonstrations, outside police stations and on the dance floor. His mission was to take poetry everywhere, and to popularise it by reaching people who didn’t read books. His poetry was political, musical, radical and relevant. By the early 1990s, Benjamin had performed on every continent in the world (a feat which he achieved in only one year) and he hasn’t stopped performing and touring since.
