Urban poetry l.jpg
Urban Poetry

  • Still in London - one that rhymes

    Sirens wailing, screaming in the night,

    Still in London, Lights glaring, unnatural heated, blazing light.Still in London.Inky, black sky blotted with polluted cloudsStill in London.Trains fly past, oblivious to the coughing shrouds, Still in London.Brakes screeching like banshees as their bulk halts, Still in London.Buildings ablaze with man-made lighting faults, Still in London.Dirty ground dull and filthy in the shining light.Still in London.Views mucky from this amazing height.Still in London.Sightseers asleep, red tour buses lying dormant.Still in London, Awaiting the morning's misty movement.Still in London, Still lovin' London!
