Sunken Boat in The Thames at Sunbury

Down and out on The Thames at Sunbury.You lie there inelegant

In your demise

Fast water sloughs at sunken sides

While rough treatment abrades a glorious past

Sodden below the water line

 

The ropes that once strained to hold you

Now ache without passion

As you lay breached

Vulnerable to any stray look

Romance now no longer tender

  1. Good one. Knew this boat at Platt’s Eyott. Quite liked it sunk as it was. Clever perception of this old working boat that’s no longer wanted.
