Nearly there … just this one and Day 22 to complete and I’m up-to-date! Day 29 and I cannot find a prompt from napowrimo – oh no! I’ll have to come up with something myself *racks brain* … OK, I have it … hope you think so too.
November 2000 and police intercept a gang
Who plan to smash into the Millennium Dome,
To steal diamonds worth a mere
They intend to escape in a speedboat
On the Thames, like a James Bond film!
Conflict diamonds, synthetic diamonds,
The monopoly is threatened.
Hidden hoarders of diamonds are scared.
Vast, is the hoard of secret diamonds,
Worth billions, yes billions.
A fall in the value of diamonds?
Ah, but we love diamonds, because they are
They are, (and we all know this),
Quite simply, a girl’s
Marilyn sang the famous song
It must be true …
And yet, the sadness of
Pain, politics and cruelty
Encrusts blood diamonds.
