In London


In London every street has a name

(although it’s hard to tell)

And every train station has a train

usually within a minute at least

 

In London every palace has at least seven bedrooms

one for each day of the week

And every king or queen has distant family members

in every other European nation

 

In London every homeless stranger asks for money

but in the most polite way

And every empty plastic cup feels like a dagger

in my heart

 

In London all the bridges have names

some more exciting than others

And all the streams connect somehow

to the vast river in the center
