my first open mic back in 2018

Soldiers put away your guns,
Terrorists put away your explosives,
Rioters put away your bricks and petrol bombs,
All Gods put away your many books of lies,
Politicians put away your greed and ignorance,
Journalists if you can’t be nice print nothing at all,
Holy preachers put away your hate filled sermons,
Shouters of bullshit put away your bullying,
Hiding in the loud away from the thinkers,
I’m not violent and I’m the radical heathen,

You’re a lady/gent born to a high class,
I work to keep you in the luxury you expect,
And you only know to slag me off,
I use our language in its full even the blue,
Your over sensitive sensibilities incapable to deal with its use,
BUT I’M THE F**!!*G RADICAL HEATHEN,

Soldiers put away your guns,
Terrorists put away your explosives,
Rioters put away your bricks and petrol bombs,
All Gods put away your many books of lies,
Politicians put away your greed and ignorance,
Journalists if you can’t be nice print nothing at all,
Holy preachers put away your hate filled sermons,
Shouters of bullshit put away your bullying,
Hiding in the loud away from the thinkers,
I’m not violent and I’m the radical heathen,


Politicians put away your defective polices,
Cities shoo away your occupants to the country,
Don’t Let your life finish with common sense evaporated,
Media put away your charity images of death and dieses,
Why do you all do such pointless shit for so little reward,
HUMANITY IT IS TIME TO GROW UP,
Because I’m no radical heathen
you and me both of this same humanity.

Merchants stop selling your weapons,

Extremists stop lining the

weapon merchants’ pockets,

Trouble makers stop in sighting the stupid’s,
encouraging them to Riot and loot,
All Gods put away your many books of lies,
Politicians put away your greed and ignorance,
Journalists if you can’t be nice print nothing at all,
Holy preachers put away your hate filled sermons,
Shouters of bullshit put away your bullying,
Hiding in the loud away from the thinkers,
I’m not violent and I’m the radical heathen,

You’re a lady/gent born to the slutty higher classes,
I work to keep you in comfort and fed, My brothers and sisters die in your wars,
And you only know to put me down with your religious view,
I use our language in its full even the foul,
Your over sensitive mind unable to deal with its use,
BUT I’M THE F**!!*G RADICAL HEATHEN,

This is one of my older poems. I had been working on since a conversation at #WordattheWharf my local poetry group. where we had discussed slam poetry at our last zoom meeting.

  1. I would love to hear a recording of this. I can feel the slam, the subtle irony and the weaving of repetition really ramps up the intensity of the message.
