People In London, by Danny Kemp


Vacant faces with no traces,

Of what’s happening inside.

Always rushing never slowing, 

To secret places they glide.

Voices shouting, ears not hearing,

Places sought to hide.

Men are digging, machines are hammering,

Sanity does collide.

City heaving, no one breathing.

No resting place to reside.

Rhythms of a city. Noises without pity.

Take me to the countryside!

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 although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. 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.
