M.I.A.
This BE Our Verse.

My parents did a good one on me,
with alcohol and adultery.
I was lost when their marriage sank,
like a refugee from the West Bank.

Being stateless can be liberating
despite the dictating and berating.
It can lead you on to truthfulness,
if you are only willing to confess,

as every journey must reach its end 
don't be fooled, deceived or pretend
that you're thankful for the charitable gift,
of being cast deportably adrift.

Jane Austin, English author, died today in 1817.

M.I.A., English rapper, record producer and activist, was born today in 1975.
