Ellen van Neerven

It is the poet’s right to write,

They own the deep dark night,

They own the bright light of day,

It is for us that they must have their say.

Poetry should try to inflame,

But never incite shame.

It should open up a gate,

But not bring on racism or hate.

Schools must teach poetry

But also, perhaps some knowetry, 

Know that ART cannot be bad or good,

Liked or not liked, but understood.

They should teach love and grace

And how to share this space.

Ellen van Neerven, right has no depute

Your Mango is a perfect fruit.
