The longest pier

dscn2971

The longest pier apparently
in the world today
That’s Southend here in Blighty
not a lot more I can say

Apart from that it’s very long
stretching out to sea
The pier head barely visible
in the wide Thames estuary

The lights across the water
shine from Northern Kent
And in between great ships pass by
to London, laden, sent

But lovely though that is to see
the striking thing right here
is of course the structure that’s
the longest Southend Pier
