The late poet was a natural anarchist and a one-off whose like we will not see again

I was in a performance once with Benjamin Zephaniah, and I cannot tell you very much about it, except that the person who organised it was quite annoyed with him.
I never really understood why – he looked good to me – but I think it had something to do with the fact that he was not doing what was stated on the programme that he was there to do.
What I mean is that he was there and did perform, but he did not perform what he was supposed to be performing and what maybe the people paid for.
