Flint cairn

Flint cairn, Cobham, Kent

Kentish field flecked with flint.
Farmer picked the flint from field,
Planting piles along the fringe.

A time ago, before the plough,
Hunter flaked the flint to form
Arrows, blades, and axes strong.

These earth bones, knuckles,
Ore of latent tools,
Time has turned to trash.
