Eat Your Words

Poem By Benjamin Zephaniah

I am a veggie table
A table made of veg,
There’s so much fruit upon me
All living on the edge,
Life is hard
But so are plates
And tea can be quite hot,
And vegetarian poets
Make me nervous quite a lot.

I come from a musical place
Where they shoot me for my song
