Funky Chickens: 09/03/21
Funky Chickens by Benjamin Zephaniah is a collection of poetry about life as a young Black man in England. Each poem is illustrated with what appears to be clip art, giving a false sense of cheese.
The poems are emotional: sometimes funny and sometimes heart-wrenching. They cover a number of themes of city life. Collectively they remind me of Black Girl, Call Home by Jasmine Mans (2021).
The book is available as an ebook. It's a follow up to Talking Turkeys (1995), which is also now available as an ebook.
