Our poetic mayor

I shine/With my eyes/I shine/With my grin/I shine/With my smile/I shine/From within

This is an extract from a poem by Christopher Wellbelove, the Mayor of Lambeth. Whatever your thoughts on the work itself, I am actually very touched that the mayor posts his poems on his homepage; and it’s brave, because they are not exactly about planning applications and opening schools. Read them here. Opinions please!
