Stranger in a strange land

by Jem Croucher

Ventured to a wall of glass
with suits and conversations
much of which just passed me by
such was my motivation
For I was as a stranger
in a land I didn’t know
London’s dockland business world
with money there on show

To me it all seemed alien
and unsettling I would say
So I’m rather pleased I only
had to be there half a day
I’d rather see the sun on sea
than from reflections on the glass
So you can keep your business world
on that I think I’ll pass
