grenfell

we will remember them
those (we) forgot
until, too late
for them

we will remember them
who died, under a plume that stained
our sky
and
our, complacency

we will remember them
and their
righteous, anger
against our
failure

we will, remember them

won’t we?

  1. Even watching from half a world away, it was impossible not to feel outraged and distressed. Yet, as time passes other tragedies take the attention of those not directly involved. I often think how abandoned survivors of disasters must feel as they are first thrust into the spotlight, then ignored as something new and shiny comes along for the media.
