A song for the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire, one year on.

14th June 2018

I wrote this in December 2017 after reading about the many Grenfell survivors stuck in temporary accommodation and hotel. Sadly another six months on, many of the victims remain without permanent housing.

Stunned and shattered
How do we move on?
And where will we end up
Now we have no home?

A promise broken
Six months come and gone
So where will we end up
Now we have no home?

‘Cos it seems at best we’ve been left for dead
Sleeping four abreast in this hotel bed
Come on, look at us
It’s not good enough just to bow your head

More than ashes
Fell on Grenfell Road
And it’s no use to
Say we told you so
But yes we told you so
