John Akinde performs his poem Letters in an exclusive vlog for HuffPost UK. In it he touches on how a letter took away the place he called home in the name of gentrification, how letters tell him what money he owes, where to be, and that he needs to vote. However, he doesn't ever get a letter telling him who represents him.
This vlog is part of our Election Outspoken series, in which seven spoken word artists talk about the issues important to them. To watch the rest visit our dedicated page.
You can see more spoken word, comedy and gig theatre at this year's The Last Word festival at the Roundhouse, including the Poetry Slam Final on 8 June.
