Flames

We love
we hate
we prey
we bait
envy
jealousy
adorns
everyday
Do we fathom
what is life ..?
one stroke of fate
all up in flames
or down the Thames
do not know
which is the last breath
soon decorated
by scented wreath
if fortunate to be
preserved in death….
Life is but a match
Death a stroke……..

( This dedicated to all those affected by the London Grenfell Tower disaster )
