Creative Writing as a way of coming to terms with literature
In one of our English classes we read Nikesh Shukla’s short story A Tale of British Justice (For Zahid Mubarek).The cruel, shocking and senseless murder of a British boy of Pakistani origin by a white supremacist – made possible by the failure of the British legal system in the first place – was reflected by our students in poems, eulogies and fables.
a group of white rabbits
brown one stole a carrot
rabbit came across the wolf
„Oh filthy brown
rabbit was running to get
tired of hiding
and what would have happened if he was white?
Look at that boy,
What a waste
He was nice and coy;
A tragic case.
Peter the racist
Beat him to death.
Among thugs and rapists
He took his last breath.
Death witout sense;
Cause of battery jailed.
We miss him immense;
The system failed.
By Little Princess and Sister A
Poor Kerry was beaten to death in his cell
By Peter the psychopathic bulldog
He had no point being there, didn’t deserve this hell
Just stole some batteries at the corner shop
The guards didn’t even notice
They wouldn’t have cared anyway
Tell me how this can happen in British justice
An innocent boy killed as prey!
Didn’t we learn since KKK?
