My Map of London

South London’s all on cannabis
North London’s all on speed
East London’s full of communists
West London’s full of greed

Well once again its that time of the year when tourists from around the globe asking for all sorts of directions to places I never knew existed (well some of them). After a long day pointing and gesticulating and trying to find some god of simplicity to make my meaning clear I sort of wish I could just tell them this poem. Though places and streets and attitudes may come and go my map of London has been true since before I was a child and I guess it will go on like that ad infinitum.

    Yikes! Good to know…I’ll be visiting London in about 2 weeks’ time the first time ever (yeah…I guess I’ll will be one of those pesky tourists needing directions ((or the girl sitting on her suitcase on the corner, sobbing))… Please be kind and let me have GPS co-ordinates for the safest spot in town…

  • Anni G Gently coming to London!!! Do not be alarmed by my little verse the people are not like that at all. its the place that is either hyper or sluggish. If you happen to get to see Tate Modern and find the Rothko murals… well its one of my favourite places. x (and I have always been known to be kind to girls sitting on suitcases…)
