Somewhere in the darkness

where lighting strikes it’s way

worn out people crying helpless

as the frightened wait for day.

Walking wounded stare off coldly

the priestess learns to pray

laughing stops at the door step

while others wait to stay.

No one knows the likelihood

of eating soup for one

but it is fairly certain that

the cooking’s almost done.

Writing letters, reading books

both have had their time

and as we look upon the moon

we are still waiting for the chime.

No one sees the brilliance

of lonely men softly speaking

with warnings of a change that comes

to the air you breath that’s reeking.

You may be free to question

all the changes that occur

but questions make no difference

it won’t matter if you concur.

Time is not on our side

we are temporary guests

and when you see the damage done

it’s non-compliance at its best.

So side-step all the lightning

ignore those that are needy

believe you can see in the dark

and breath the air most freely.

Then the time will come for you

to live a different life

one in which your time has come

to learn of horrid strife.

And when you’re in the darkness

praying for the day

remember what the priestess learned

it’s your time to truly pay.

For darkness must become your friend

must calm you as you wake

for it is all that’s left to come

in earth’s destructive wake.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
