A column of flame stands erect
in yet another bleak London night.
A symbol of corruption, neglect and pain manifest;
Life impacted by gentrification now brought to light.
A 220ft furnace
that will serve as a constant reminder.
A testament to the night, we cannot and will not
ever put behind us
The night humans became cattle.
Executed in their home.
Missing British People.
Their whereabouts now unknown.
The ice queen makes her first onscreen appearance;
her steely demeanor remains,
not one hair out of place.
She simply heads back to her castle,
from which she can continue her reign.
She knows the month of May has passed
so she shows no concern.
In spite, this June
she sat back,
and simply let us burn.
To the Grenfell Tower victims, we wish you strength in this terrible time.
I can’t imagine how it must feel to lose your homes, your families, and your friends
all in one red summer night.
For Grenfell Tower
let us all mourn together
The 14th of June 2017,
a summer night we must always remember
