    Levi Tafari's cool. He used to always come into my school and give us pointers on writing poetry. His daughter's a model apparently and his son went to visit the White House to see the US foreign secretary at the time, who's name I can't remember, the one who Condi Rice replaced.

    Default Levi Tafari

    I met Levi on Saturday, I have n't seen him for a while I told him that he was in the Scouser Hall of Fame on Yo Liverpool and was really pleased, he is going to pay the site a visit over the following week, unsure if he will sign up.

    Toxteth where I reside
    Come with me, yes I'll be your guide
    To the city where I reside
    Lets take a walk
    So we can talk
    About Liverpool on Merseyside

    In the sixties Liverpool
    Made its name
    It went international
    Well crucial
    Admired at home and abroad
    Everybody wanted to speak Scouse
    Liverpool you're hard

    Then the dread times came
    And you lost your fame
    Pressure hit Liverpool

    Now checkout Toxteth my dwelling place
    Can you believe your eyes
    There are beautiful houses on elegant streets
    I know you'll be surprised
    Because the media paint a picture
    Of the people in a negative light
    They magnified the rundown places
    And ignored the ones which are out of sight

    So forget the ghetto mentality
    Because we are not ghettoites
    We are talented people
    With a lot to give
    The oldest Black community in Europe
    And we're positive

    Now I admit in Toxteth
    That things they can get rough
    But if you lived down here you would overstand
    We just don't get enough
    So we need the opportunity
    To make a positive contribution
    So we can feel good in this neighbourhood
    And improve our situation

    That would be amazing if he stuck around for a bit,that poem you've posted is excellent.
