I walked this way so many times
the route I made my own
Knew everything about it
from where I worked to home
Yet, walking there this morning
there’ve been changes over time
Not least of which the view I see
on the Brighton city line

For now instead of open sky
from the churchyard on the hill
Brighton’s i-360 tower
looms omnipresent still
It’s really a monstrosity
(though some would disagree)
A spike upon the skyline
in Brighton by the sea


The ‘British Airways i-360’ is a 162-metre (531 ft) observation tower on the seafront of Brighton, near to the remains of the West Pier. It opened for business in August 2016.

    As I Sit
    As I sit in early morn
    I gaze out a window
    To see what I can t can see

    Two seagulls… a crow…two squirrels
    Seeking treasures left by me
    So, I slip into the room
    With the ‘Great White Throne’

    And dump some history
    It feels good to rid myself
    Of such hypocracy
