A crack in the cliff at North Foreland

The cliff will crack open any day now

Maybe during the night - maybe sooner
The cliff of Chalk will come crashing down

On to the sand below

The sea will reclaim yet more of

The Isle of Thanet - just a part of

The doomsday of global warming 

Thus it is as it is - Thanet sooner than expected

A danger to shipping - as the Isle Of Goodwin became

Then the population of Thanet

Will become unwanted migrants - refuges on the mainland


Population: 141,819

Such a shame. Thanetarians won't be unwanted, surely? A prophetising poem for sure.
