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.
