The night is cold,
and some are sold
for bits of gold,
it is foretold

Only a few words are needed to express a grim reality of our society, and these words of yours can haunt us.

Dear Dolly,
Quite attention grabbing in its metre and solid in its rhyme. Great subject for this comp., in which I wish you well. One small point: I feel the first word first line should be "In" rather than "The"
Regards
Reg

What a gritty, fitting art choice - really like it. Your poem is like a poem noir, as it were. It is also gritty and makes one feel the night in a city so completely as described. Give me chills! Well done!

Ooooo... your C-O echoes of sinister deeds and back-alley shenanigans, Dolly.... I even think the use of '-old' as your four-in-a-row emphasis there adds to that 'chill' feeling! ;) Thanx for sharing! ;) Yvette

A very nice rhyme pattern, Dolly. It definitely covered the activity of the city at night and did so with a directness. You managed to capture the essence of the city. You did a great job.

Hello Dolly your dark poem certainly accounts for the mischief that is carried on at night. Most of the cities in the US fit the verse very well. Robert

'You're never alone with a Strand!'

Do yo remember those advertisements from the days when cigarette advertising was permitted? Actually the picture here could be one used in that very campaign. The underlying threat here makes this a very dark chime indeed.

    Yes I do remember those advertisements very well. At school we had a visit to the Wills Wiffs factory and we were all provided with a pack of cigarettes to smoke on the coach going home! We were just 15 years old! I shall never forget that trip! Evidently women would smuggle cigarettes out in their girdle! Ha ha ha, thank you for your review, love Dolly x

That is excellent artwork to inspire a poem. Your words capture the atmosphere of the night. It's "The Naked City" and lots of bad things are going on. Night is the time for hiding the evil deeds being contemplated. There are attractions that bring people out, exposing them to the dancers of the night. Great chime operandi. judi

    You're welcome. Whenever I watch Midsomer Murders and see a wooded area and a full moon, I know a body's going to be found very soon. judi
