Island Man Grace Nichols
(For a Caribbean island man in London
who still wakes up to the sound of the sea)
Morning and night
and island man wakes up
to the sound of blue surf
in his bed
the steady breaking and wombing
and fishermen pushing out to sea
the sun surfacing defiantly
from the east
of his small emerald island
he always comes back groggily groggily
Comes back to sands
of a grey metallic soar
to surge of wheels
in dull North Circular roar
his crumpled pillow waves
island man heaves himself Another London day Also here is some infomation about the Author:
Grace Nichols was born in Georgetown, Guyana, in 1950 and grew up in a small country village on the Guyanese coast.

She worked as a teacher and journalist and, as part of a Diploma in Communications at the University of Guyana, spent time in some of the most remote areas of Guyana, a period that influenced her writings and initiated a strong interest in Guyanese folk tales, Amerindian myths and the South American civilisations of the Aztec and Inca. She has lived in the UK since 1977.
Her first poetry collection, I is a Long-Memoried Woman, was published in 1983. The book won the Commonwealth Poetry Prize and a subsequent film adaptation of the book was awarded a gold medal at the International Film and Television Festival of New York. The book was also dramatised for radio by the BBC. Subsequent poetry collections include The Fat Black Woman's Poems (1984), Lazy Thoughts of a Lazy Woman (1989), and Sunris (1996). She also writes books for children, inspired predominantly by Guyanese folklore and Amerindian legends, including Come on into My Tropical Garden (1988) and Give Yourself a Hug (1994). Everybody Got A Gift (2005) which includes new and selected poems.

In the broadest sense, gag writers attempt to produce humor and journalists attempt to publish information based on fact. And while a gag writer might produce information as an offshoot of his/her humor and a journalist might use humor to impart information, the job of a gagwriter is to be humorous, and the job of a journalist is to impart information based on fact.
