People In Daytime London.


People In Daytime London.

Indefinable shapes,

Scurrying to and fro,

Always rushing somewhere,

But really no place to go!

Into telephones they squawk loudly,

With no one standing close.

Loud enough for all to hear,

Well, almost most!

Street bands playing something,

Making loads of din.

If that’s what they call music,

Then I’m decidedly not one that’s ‘IN.’

Bums astride bikes, skimming through town,

Breaking every law in the book.

But they don’t worry about getting nicked,

‘Cos there’s no police to take a look!

London is full up with people,

Living life that’s hectic and fast.

You may see a smile on some faces,

But watch out! They seldom last!

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller and in May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada and Australia. Although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows best; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television in the UK.
