Alton: St Lawrence
Perpendicular -
I rise behind pines,
a solid historical tower.
In particular -
I'm famed for the signs
of Bolle and his men's final hour.
The bullets flew fast
as the Ironcoats attacked;
the Colonel's last enclave
was finally sacked.
Now Curricula Vitae -
inscribed lines
record the manoeuvres of power.
