Fucking Tanks

A guest poem from Spoaken Word Lewes regular open mic'er Fred The Ninja. Thanks Fred.




I owe my very existence to Russian fucking tanks.

If my dad had not run from them 66 years ago in Hungary, he never would have come here, never would have met my mum.

Even though I never faced them myself the bloody trail of their tracks is imprinted on my life.
