Sunday review.

Monday's poem was Care Plan for the Newly Bereaved by Jan Harris which was a humanising look at the death of Margaret Thatcher. A good thing for us to remember.
'Best Loved Book' by Judy Ugonna followed, on Tuesday with a look at a story that spoke to the outsider in us all when we wonder "What would it be like?"
Wednesday's poem 'Three Payments Away' by Carolyn Cornthwaite  reminded us about how thin the veneer of civilisation gets sometimes and how that can be fatal
Recovery Room, Maternity Ward by Doireann Ní Ghríofa on Thursday was a sad poem that give us pause to think about a tough time in someone's life. One of the things that Poetry24 does so well.
On Friday Luigi Pagano's poem 'A Bolt from the Blue' cleverly used figures from ancient times to talk about very real trouble in modern times.   
David Mellor's 'Streetscene' wrapped up the week on Saturday with a look at that most endangered of creatures, the local community. 
I hope that you all have a good week and that you keep sending in submissions
