All over this weekend in the UK the predominant night-time sound has been that of fireworks. Last night they reached such a crescendo of sounds that I’d expect were reminiscent of a war zone. I had never experienced such a bombardment…
Sounds like Letchworth,
and Baldock are at war,
Sunday night explosions,
not heard before.
The night sky lights up,
with a thousand cannon flashes,
as both sides engage,
in more fiery clashes.
I race for the car,
to film for networks,
drive over the hill,
Phew! Only fireworks!
Please take a moment from your day to think of those who hear these sounds and know they are not fireworks but the sound of war.
