The old river is shit-brown

Silted up with guilty memories

Choked like a sclerotic vein

From all the lard of empire


Over on the other bank

They are still making Babel-towers above

The trough of the City

Austerity applies elsewhere-

Where people live


Where the flow

Won’t go

City of London, construction
