Tale of two cities …………..

RomeThe  siren’s  of  the police car, ambulance  and  fire engine

Soundtrack of  the  city of Colosseum and  Column  of Trajan

Above  the  noise  and  tumult  history  is  screaming  to be heard

Yet  well shod  feet  and  fashion bodies  hear  not  a  single  word.

 

The  River  wends its  way past  the  Eye and  Big Ben

Towers, White  and  Bloody, a gate  receives Traitors  again

Bridges, parks  and monuments  down Pudding lane

Ghosts and  memories  cry  to be  seen again.
