A song for the victims of the #Grenfell Tower fire, one year on. I wrote this in December 2017 after reading about the many Grenfell survivors stuck in temporary accommodation and hotels. Sadly another six months down the line many of the victims are still without permanent housing. We haven't forgotten.
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
