Musings or a Septuagenarian

Peacehaven – haven of peace;

truth – or a lie?

Conceived in haste, nurtured in poverty,

last resting place of Pinkie Brown.

now replete with fish and chips, and betting shops.

Peacehaven – haven of peace?

I’ll let you decide.

Telscombe – valley of gold;

truth – or a lie?

conceived in the womb of history, nurtured through guilt,

crossed by the prime meridian

now replete with privilege and power.

Telscombe – valley of gold?

I’ll let you decide

Peacehaven or Telscombe?

I’ll let you decide.
