Describing Benjamin Zephaniah

We where talking about Benjamin Zephaniah, an awsome poet. We read a poem that he wrote called «According to my mood». This poem is very special because we thing that he wrote it for a reason. In my opinion he wrote this because he is saying something whit grammar mistakes but he is right. Maybe he can be poor, black, and dyslexic but there is no reason to judge him because he can not change his personality or appearence. He has the liberty to write whatever he wants. Here is the poem:

According To My Mood

I have poetic license,
i WriTe thE way i waNt.
i drop my full stops where i like………..
MY CAPITAL LetteRs go where i liKE,

En este blog, se van a encontrar con materias, y entradas sobre ellas. Nuestros profesores nos hicieron esta página como herramienta de estudio. Cada alumno diseña su blog como quiere, pero necesita cierta información que les piden los profesores, trabajos, tareas, etc. Las materias están divididas por categorías, las de castellano por un lado, y las de inglés por otro. La idea seria ir personalizando mi blog seguido.
