1718: Flood Pains in Uckfield

It was reported pigs
were moved to safety
as Olives Meadow [&
lowly places] readied
river defences / Bags
of sand had been set
to safeguard that fine
dry cleaners down on
Bell Walk [no relation]

Locals dozed [steeled]
for damp renewals of
a [now] normal trouble
as my ex’s shed [sorry –
‘office’] sat tormented /
Such sudden erections
should be kept high up
[to miss wet torrents of
our flood-thrusted Uck]
