Burnet News Club – Final Piece – Knife Crime – SLAM Poem


Gangs, north east south and west,

This occupation isn’t the best.

Making lives horrible,

The gangs making a new history parable

Forced into bad things,

In their head it makes a ‘ting’

As the children only join,

Because they get some shiny coins.

They feel the need to join these predators,

Imagining the love they could get.

Carrying knifes, dreadful but smart

excuses to hold,

This will go on, until we grow old,

Only one way that peace comes back to stay

Is that we make a change today.

If you want to make lives good,

Support us now, it would be astonishing if you could.

    I agree with you there because in your poem it says that children carry knifes and that is a bad thing because some people think it is a good thing to do but it is not so they don't know what to do because inside there good people but in the outside there not.
