 I contributed my poem about my eye-opening excursion into the Ecuadorian Rain Forest and the cruelties inflicted on animals by the ‘tourist industry’. Also I read William Blake’s ‘Tyger’, one of my absolutely favourite poems of all time, which has lost none of its force since it was written in 1792.
