Everyone knows Leicester Square. We’ve all seen film premieres covered in the news and if you’ve been to London, you’ve probably strolled through it. It’s an individual in how despite some of the crass shops nearby it remains peaceful within the square.
Where for a century and more
Thespians had trodden
Wind swept, rain soaked paving slabs,
Shoes protected by red carpet,
In the hope of sharing their star dust.
Fans in their thousands,
Young, old, infirm,
Have screamed delight.
When all goes quiet though,
You will see peaceful souls,
For anything else in the world.
