Babak Ganjei – Don’t Interrupt the Adults

Babak Ganjei is a London-based artist, musician, comic book writer and radio show host. The poetry he writes can be found on his website. An adept of blackout poetry – for which he has used books by Jeremy Clarkson, Nigel Farage and Donald Trump, Babak also writes his own original verse like this brilliant homage to parenthood and childhood.

 

 

Don’t interrupt the adults when they are
talking
They are talking
About Love Island and Posh ketchup,
And the Football result,
And Simon Cowell’s melting face,
Don’t interrupt the adults when they are
talking about how chocolate bars got
smaller,
yes, you want to know why the sky looks
blue from far away,
But it has no colour close up
And there is no felt tip for the sky close up
But don’t interrupt the adults when they
are talking
THEY ARE TALKING
DO NOT INTERRUPT
