“Let us sing and dance to the expression of the age-old ideals with LKJ, their principal exponent in poetry as song, poetry as public address, poetry as memory, poetry as chant, spell, mantra, prayer, agenda, list of priorities, sounding board, sauciness, curse, elegy, melody, summons, soul, funk, liturgy, conscience, guttural poetry, hymnal poetry, poetry that declaims, proclaims and inflames, poetry as agitation and cogitation” - Fred D’Aguiar 2001 Linton Kwesi Johnson Selected Poems
