Jack White has written a poem, titled ‘Courageous Dream’s Concern’, about his hometown, Detroit.

The Raconteurs and White Stripes frontman wrote the verse for the Detroit Free Press to express “my feelings about the city itself, and how strong I believe it to be”.

White said that his feelings about the city had been misrepresented in the past after an interview in which he criticised the Detroit music scene saying it was “super-negative”.

“Those expressions of mine have never been a representation of my feelings about Detroit the city, a town that I have strong feelings about … nor were they expressions about its citizens,” said White.

Introducing the poem, White sets the scene as “The Detroit that is in my heart”.
