end of the pier

This is Clevedon Pier, because I took a picture of it and I have never knowingly taken a picture of Weston Super Mare's pier.

The pier at Weston Super Mare went up in flames this morning, and there is much agog-ness in the West Country's media. So, goading myself into a frenzy of inconsequence, I wrote a poem for the occasion. No, please, it was the least I could do.

Though my trips have been quite rare
To Weston Super Mare
Because I think it's drear,
I wouldn't diss a pier.
