New Poem: FOR MANCHESTER.

Manchester vigil

You died in the killing
Willing death upon our city
But I can’t even hate you
All I feel for you is pity;
For the slowly dawning truth
You’ll have to live with now forever-
Your pointless death did nothing more
Than bring us all together.
 
Just look upon this square now-
Every colour, every creed
Is gathered here defiant
Ready in the hour of need
To be there for each other
As we’ve always been before
With an arm around a shoulder
With an ever open door
With a phone call to a relative
A simple cup of tea
The spirit of a people
Rising up in unity.
 
Tonight we mourn our children
Tonight we count the cost,
But look at all you’ve done here,
Cos all you’ve done is lost.
