Powerful Stuff



Yesterday I came Ben Okri's poem  about Grenfell Tower.  I'd urge you to listen to this testament to social injustice.   It is intensely powerful.  What struck me was the author's voice is seems so gentle but does not lack power.

  1. Like he says ... you see a war zone here planted in our city .. it is like this for children and adults alike elsewhere on a daily basis. We have such a beautiful world with such sadness and destruction and sorrow. I can only hope that for ...those who had no idea why they died ... is a lesson for those who created this terrible disaster by failing the people they were supposed to be caring for.

    1. The war zone stuff is so true. Abject poverty side by side with riches is a time bomb waiting to go off. xx
