Aberfan – and other places


Aberfan fifty years on – and other places
What – prayers for change?
God questions seemingly unanswerable
Or stimulus to do
Prayer alone?
Or demonstrate and change
Aberfan fifty years on – and other places
And men.




(I was four at the time of Aberfan Oct 1966, but I remember watching in horror and understanding, even in my little world, about mudslides and things being buried.  It is just one of those deep seated facts in my psyche, as it is with people around that time in the UK, perhaps like the Cuban Missile crisis or the death of JFK for those in America, that we could be so unthinking about the care of our world, so that Aberfan was left Hamlin like and we all paid the price for not respecting the piper.)
