Poetry24 highly recommends poems for Grenfell Tower. Such a poignant anthology, including poems by Abigail Elizabeth Ottley, Finola Scott, and Janine Booth.

What is an Elephant?



Already it has the fantastic look
of an animal gone extinct; a scarcely
credible mammal, a titanic curiosity

just right for story books. Our descendants
won’t believe we let poachers kill for ivory,
discarding massive bones with equanimity.
