    ! Ika

    Ika,
    I’d love to write a poem
    I’d be proud to write a poem
    for you which would be
    about you because
    you deserve a poem

    which would be about
    you of course but also deeply, deeply,
    about the tragic, comic, farcical
    ironies of skin colour, history, earnings,
    empire, class, prejudice, sheer
    human thoughtlessness and cruelty; and yet
    the essential goodness
    of mankind

    and it would somehow
    have to cover
    your proud Jamaican family,
    stalwart, respected
    in the community and then

    the way that Britain invited
    its fine colonial soldiers,
    airman, sailors, who had
    fought and lived and died
    for a land they had never known,
    for an Empire shortly to break up,
    to come to Britain and
    continue the proud record
    of colonial servicemen

    supported by our web of aristocracy
    which knew and served and loved its Empire
    full of human beings, humanity -
    so that you, now retired
    from the services, are
    a hospital orderly who is
    on nodding terms with lords and ladies,
    millionaires and nobodies
    and friend to everybody, who has

    suffered the irony of being
    mugged by white guys
    disguised as joggers
    because you dress so smart…
    I think you’ve never quite
    recovered from this
    wound they’d never guess at…

    and all this human thoughtlessness
    and more, you turn upside down
    by shopping at Harrods food store
    on a hospital orderly’s pay;
    while your nephews and nieces
    educated in Jamaica and the States
    are so magnificent, and well-off too…

    there’s so much I’d like to put down
    on paper, because I’m so proud
    to have you as a friend, who
    also represents
    more recent human history
    than a book of history
    could contain; and yet
    you’ve never lost your dignity
    thank God

    so

    this is just to say,
    you deserve a poem,
    Ika,
    and I’d be honoured
    to write it but
    I can’t even begin
    you know how it is

    yes indeed you do read more »

    irony and unthinkability

    Just like football helmets that create
    illusions of invulnerability
