Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner….lets indulge in 2012!

This isn’t poetry, just me being indulgent on a Sunday night….….again….

I was born in London, went to university in London and still love my home town, even though I will never live there again.

Heres a wonderful bit from the Opening Ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics:

The Sun Queen

The Sun Queen


Source of heat and fuel for life
Beautiful at the horizon
Painting clouds and sky
We bask and burn in her glory
And she sits supreme at system centre
Girdled by her planets
Visited by stray comets
Regally burning
Interior electrons impede her light
Rendering our glowing orb opaque
Not that you can see this
It would burn your eyes out
