The local stone.
Sussex is built on.
Houses are built from.
Hard enough to weather storms.
Pebbles rounded by swash and backwash, year after year.
You can hone it to a sharp edge
A cutting tool, an axe, a knife, a weapon to destroy
A tool, to create.
A foundation for civilisation.
Fred, Wilma, Pebbles and Dino .
You can make a spark
The beginning of a fire
A cigarette lighter
Pleasure and fun.
The beaches of Brighton.
Inspiring ideas, strength and commitment, lust for life,
‘Our man Flint’ wasn’t James Coburn .
