Benjamin Zephaniah

Jeremiah, Jeremiah... I'll tell you what I see.

I have been completely absorbed in Peaky Blinders the past week. Haven't enjoyed a series that much for a long time, not sure I can wait for September.

I was already sold, and then this happened.

Anybody else spot a legendary poet on the far right?

Must admit, I blinked before I was sure.

Benjamin Zephaniah is an institution (though he may prefer republic). I was probably about nine when I first encountered him, in a book of modern children's verse. Check out According to my Mood. It's one of the best poems written for children or adults.

Still not convinced?
