And it only takes two to catch on,
Try it people, and you’ll soon see,
This is a dance that can set you free,
It’s called the dance of diversity.’

‘Rollicking Caribbean-flavored rhythms combined with serious matters such as racism define poet extraordinaire, Agard.’ – Voya

A performance poet, Agard uses his rhyme, repetition and refrains that make his work sing…Skilful use of humour to get his serious points across. – The Book Horn Inc
