No-one likes an angry poet

Steve Pottinger rails, although quietly, about corporate tax avoidance, particularly by Starbucks, in this wonderful poem, filmed at an empty pub in Birmingham, England.

A fantastic, no-budget production except for the coffee (as far as I can tell). This video is a lesson in making something brilliant out of nothing, a fine definition of Art. 

Buy his just-published book Island Poems at Ignite Books (says the man who got the free .pdf) because it's Really Very Good, and also, so more books can be published, more people can read them, and our society can better itself by sharing ideas.
