‘Tongebrekker’ is the latest poem by Sigrid Kingma as the Poet of Fryslân. Also available today in the Friesch Dagblad, the Leeuwarder Courant and on the Omrop Fryslân website.

The Poet of Fryslân, Sigrid Kingma: ‘A poet needs misery to be able to write, they say. But there is also such a thing as an excess of current affairs. For those who can’t keep up with it all, the Poet of Fryslân offers a rhyming overview of the latest events.’

The Dutch translation by Tsjerk Veenstra and the English translation by Trevor Scarse can be found on the website of Dichter fan Fryslân.
