Westminster Bridge~by Paul F. Lenzi


 

 

Westminster Bridge

“Westminster Bridge” by Eva Czarniecka

(Regarding the March 2017 terrorist attack)

 

 

under gaze of the lionheart

safe in bicameral shade

cast by lord and by commoner

here struck despicable acts

an irrational violence

consummate murder most foul

in the name of the nameless

a mind-twisted loving of hatred

that terrifies civilized men

broken bodies elicit our sorrow

while courage refortifies spirits

resolved to stand firmly erect

ever watchful on guard

against incomprehensible

new breeds of threat

with a stiff upper Londoner lip

taking oath to keep carrying on
