The lens directed at the Calypso singer,
Aldwin Roberts for a brighter future.
It was 1948, and the Empire Windrush docked
with many thinking of going back to the armed forces
shocked at a reception that brought many to re-focus
in due course, living in different circumstances
where skies were gray and the mood sombre
yet many still came in large numbers
to fill jobs where some were vacant
so gradually becoming noticed for being
hardworking and pleasant.
'London is the Place for Me'* a song that
resonates still in today's climate.
Where we are facing changes so variant.
Let us sing and appreciate the talent,
we see in all cultures to surpass those
whose outlook is less than benevolent.
Life changes all the time so there is less room
but more for cultural diversity in all its magnificence.
