Grenfell – the betrayal

where escape routes were none
where there was nowhere to run
where the flames lit the sky
where they prayed not to die

how they screamed while we cried
how come so many died
how come nowhere to turn
how come ‘jump or you’ll burn’

what a loss for those living
what they feel – unforgiving
what horrors they saw
what hell can hurt more

who fought against flames
who’s still searching for names
who still digs where fire laid them
who was it betrayed them

why were people not heard
when they passed on the word
where those dangers might lie
– who turned a blind eye?
