The Perfect Dance – Serves 7 Billion (A Poem Inspired by Benjamin Zephaniah)

A Poem Inspired by Benjamin Zephaniah - blog title

Hello my lovely Truuties,

Today I have something a little different for you – a poem! I really enjoyed writing this at school and although it’s not a super-high level of English or anything like that, I love it and I hope you will too! πŸ™‚

The Perfect Dance – Serves 7 Billion (Inspired by Benjamin Zephaniah’s poem, ‘The British (serves 60 million)’):

Prepare some moves, music and art,

then immerse them in creativity and personality.

Stir in the necessities –

passion with expression

and a sprinkle of reflection.


Don’t forget the musicality and some accuracy,

cook it in emotion and devotion,

excitement and enjoyment.

Always remember the story-line,

and a little mime.


Put in a dollop of movement and self-improvement,

and some amusement? (optional)

Blend in the communication and association,

but don’t leave out your medium and most importantly,

a feeling of freedom.
