Poem of the Week: Benjamin Zephaniah

Benjamin Zephaniah reads ‘Dead. Famous.’ by An Askel, a St Petrocs’ client. Part of our Poem of the Week, a feature throughout the winter of 2018–19, raising awareness of our campaign to end street homelessness in Cornwall.

Benjamin Zephaniah is a poet, playwright, author and musician. He was included in The Times list of Britain’s top 50 post-war writers in 2008 and is probably one of the most high-profile international authors writing today.

Over the winter of 2018–19 we will be sharing a different poem each week which will be read by notable figures, exploring the themes that resonate with our campaign.
