I drove into smog and traffic… I thought ‘another typical London day’

But different this time… Grenfell

Instant thoughts… ‘terrorism’

But no… human error and sub-standard materials

We are first world… but build as if third world

UK… as always reactive, never proactive



Our first guest writer was motivated to write by his daughter. This poem was inspired by a drive into London the other week.
