Ancient boundaries:

Atrebates, the Belgae,

Catuvellauni.

A whiff of Arthur,

as he defended this land

from the foreigners –

those mercenaries

whom Voltigern had welcomed.

Was Mons Badonicus here?

I stumble across

some pushy Marasnius

oreades, which

rejuvenate with raindrops,

blown in from mainland Europe.

Challenged, they go underground.

They know coasts are never clear,

but invasion is a fact.

They are here for the long term.
