Autum of Discontent

7-year-old poet Autum Ashante has been annoying touchy white folk in the States with her poem 'White Nationalism Put U in Bondage', in which she compares Christopher Columbus and Charles Darwin (?) to 'vampires'. At a school reading recently she led black students in a recitation of the 'Black Child's Pledge', asking white students to remain seated throughout.

Asked his opinion of the child poet Mino Drouet, Jean Cocteau answered: Tous les enfants sont poètes sauf Minou Drouet.
