‘Our’ Bridge (So far)

By 15th January 2015December 9th, 2019No Comments

At night the sight fair takes your breath away
Tis ‘Albert’s Bridge’ as titled long ago
Tho oft repaired (resulting from survey)
Fragility creates its own tableau
A tremble was detected ‘twixt four piers
When overuse did take its toll (both ends)
With redesign approved; allay’d held fears
As chains replaced old rods where deck suspends
Yet still a notice warns that troops ‘break step’
For marching o’er its span adds resonance
Corrosive wear as spread by dogs named ‘Shep’
Could spell the end of said pre-eminence
Frequented now by stars of ‘Silver Screen’
Twas rumoured Albert’s ghost, here kissed his Queen
