The view from the roof of

The Royal  Londom Hosput

Is a long one,

A spectacular panorama

Of this glorious city.

Yet, if you see it on a daily basis,

You do not stop to admire this

Incomparable vision,

Because you will be a member

Of the London’s Air Ambulance team,

And therefore more interested in  

 managing trauma.

The age-old irony,

Beauty in the midst of pain.
