Tale of Two Cities?

If you need a clue to the contest you will find on The Romance Reviews to win an ebook from my backlist, I’m offering a great big one in the form of a poem…  

A tale of two cities,
Or one city of two halves?
Some residents get fat,
While others can starve.

Upper and lower echelons,
All wanting more.
Where one of the richest boroughs
Can border the most poor.

A trip can be made
To the home of the Queen.
Nestled amongst lands
All leafy and green.

Other areas contrast,
And sharply, at that.
Where dull paving slabs
Lead to grey high-rise flats.

Days of blazing sun,
Can be spent lazing in a park.
Pubs and clubs available,
For fun to continue after dark.

A small part of an island,
Though not near the sea.
Where a view full of smog
Turns to a sky blue as can be.

A range of transport options,
Available for all to use.
Though sans the colourful tube map,
You could be left confused.

The verse could relate to any city,
When looked at on its face.
But the description relates to London,
In this particular case.
