The old pier

We could augment it
use bricks and cement
it,
paint it blue and admire
it,
or just leave it alone.

what do you make of it?
change for the sake of it
or just leave it alone?

Eventually
if nothing is done
it’ll disappear
and
we can pretend
that
it was never here,

the argument being that
if it’s worth saving
it
must be worth seeing
and
that’s worth something
isn’t it?
