‘The Birth Mantra’ (live) – language warning!

Video courtesy of Australian Poetry Slam, 2019.

If you’re looking for my most popular poem, I guess this would have to be it! The video has over 2000 views on Youtube at the time I’m posting this.

I thoroughly enjoyed performing this in the Byron heat of the Australian Poetry Slam. I remember that Tug Dumbly, an early mentor on my spoken-word journey, was in the crowd that day, and I looked over at one point and saw him laughing his arse off. The style of this poem certainly owes something to Tug, despite the feminist agenda.

Please read the title before playing this in front of anyone under 18. It’s not subtle.
