Hastings & St. Leonards on-line community newspaper

By John Knowles

Combe Valley: a lament

Pave the way
Pave the way

To a road, to excess
An excess of mediocrity
Where Barratt homes
And Industrial estates
Are the only reward
Where plastic facades
And fake landscapes
Echo faker policies
And promises that
Nobody stays around to keep
