    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica]Miss World [/FONT][FONT=Arial, Helvetica]Requires Real Player.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica]This master of oral poetry has been on a mission to spread the word to a different audience since the age of 11. He performed this piece from memory during an edition of Radio 4's Midweek in 1988.
    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica]Beauty is about how you behold
    more than silver more than gold
    if I say I am beautiful
    it means beauty is accessible,
    beauty is about how you greet
    de everyday people dat you meet
    you are beautiful so all rejoice
    your beauty is a natural choice.
    My sister is a beautiful girl
    she don't want to be Miss World
    her value is not prize money
    more value than a pearl
    my sister is a beautiful girl
    human delight
    she could be out of sight but she would rather stay and fight.
    Her legs are firm and strong
    best for self-defence
    my sister kicks like wildfire
    so cause her no grievance
    she won't walk the platform
    to upsex people's lust
    and you can't get the number of her height, age or bust,
    she don't want to go to the market
    to be viewed like a slave
    the viewing time is over
    put de judge in the grave,
    she don't need to go to the market
    'cause she's already won
    beauty contest no contest
    she don't need to run.
    I talk 'bout people in society who judge you by your looks, den,
    give you a number dat is written in a book, and, lustful eyes
    from all around come to look at you, and, day judge your lifetime
    by a quick interview. My sister is a beautiful girl
    But she don't want to be Miss World
    her personality cannot be rewarded by no judge or earl. My sister is a beautiful girl
    She needs no contest
    and you can't put her with another judging who's the best.
    And you cannot judge my sister's heart
    By looking at her breasts.

    I am teaching this poem tomorrow and I also posted it on DQ's thread regarding her daughter. I just think that there is something for us all here. PS Thanks Mr Zephaniah.:cool: :cool: :cool: :cool:
