Nottingham's Heroes

Poem by Pippa Hennessy, Nottingham Writers’ Studio

Nottingham's Heroes

Robin is in all of us.
He's in the boy who stands up to the bully
and the woman who leads a protest march,
he's in your tongue when you say,
'That's not fair, you can't make me do that.'
He's in our legs when we run away
and our knuckles when we hit back.
He's the granite of Slab Square,
Little John tolling the hours
and Brian Clough's clenched fists.
His feet walk our streets every day.
He is in you. Stand tall.
Be Robin
