‘Checking Out me History’, written by John Agard is a fairly straight forward poem where the voice is expressed as the most unique element that criticises a eurocentric version of history in order to pridefully celebrate his linguistic heritage giving a sense of democracy but also rebellion.

‘Ozymandias’, written by Percy Shelley is based on a harsh dictator rather than a noble ruler who was too proud and full of himself who let his pride and human achievements get the best of him calling upon others to admire what he accomplished. We see how the effects of time and nature are capable of easily breaking man-made constructions and possessions.

‘Storm on the Island’, written by Sean Heaney highlights the brutal attacks and events of the more violent and physical side of nature and how man-kind fails to compare themselves with the level of power mother nature withholds.
