    A very simple 'poem', if you can even call it that ...

    This is London

    From its winding streets to its busy arteries;
    From tourists to city dwellers;
    From dark grey concrete to miimalist design;
    From black cabs to red buses;
    From old royal palaces to bearskinned soldiers;
    From stabbings to shootings;
    From Underground to Overground;
    From cynicism to friendliness;
    From warmth to the commuter;
    From night to dawn to grey bodies;
    From grey bodies to those with phrase books;
    From Ealing to the Tower;
    From Edgware to Clapham;
    From the theatres of the West End to the working class East End;
    A city that never sleeps.
    This is London.
