His post-coronavirus poem has hit viral fame for his optimism during this pandemic.

Tomos Roberts is a New Zealand-born spoken word poet who goes by the name Tom Foolery. Mostly known for his live shows and online videos, he recently became a viral hit. His poem “The Great Realisation,” gave everyone just a little bit of hope.

While “The Great Realisation” deals with the current COVI-19 pandemic, Tom Foolery’s other spoken word poems don’t shy away from other difficult topics. Some might say that Tom has a knack for political topics. From Boris Johnson’s handling of the pandemic to the terrible Grenfell Tower fire, he isn’t afraid to speak his mind.

Though living in the UK, Tom also tackles world issues. His poem “Back in My Day” discusses what people have done to society, other cultures, and the planet. He even has a tongue-in-cheek poem about Donald Trump, treating him like a bad child.
