London poet Caleb Femi launches #CWC19 Declaration in Brick Lane.
The whole neighbourhood is buzzing
in the local shops and in every household
the talk is of the Cricket World Cup
and what better place for it to be next year
than the home of cricket.
On our very doorstep, we invite the World
to our cobbled streets full of colour and expectation
who ever you are, how ever you are, where ever you are
come in and share the passion supporting your team.
Fly your flag with pride
after all it’s Britain; everyone’s welcome.
We are one extended family
sharing the DNA of a bat and ball.
So let’s come together and celebrate
the greatest cricket moments in the world.
Let’s watch history being made before our very eyes.
Trust me, you’ll want to be there in the midst of it all
and we will save a seat for you
you just have to tell us,
Are you in?
