Seaside Shop


Our seaside shop sells everything,

Sweet false teeth and kiss-me-quick hats,

Toffee, fudge and candy rock

And saucy postcards from a pack.


There are the ones with naughty jokes,

All kinds of ladies in bathing costumes,

Cheeky chappies making hay

In seaside hotels holiday rooms.


Such a large stock of every variety,

Family friendly and scenic beauty,

Blossoming gardens in the summer sun,

Compliment those that are slightly fruity.


Our seaside shop sells everything,

Cut price toys and tacky souvenirs

With nothing under a small fortune

It’s nearer and cheaper than the famous pier.

    I love how you took us there to the boardwalk, maybe?
    I know which one…?!
    Coney Island?

    Yes, am thinking eastern seaboard – Atlantic City? I so enjoyed this poem! And the cool images.

    I was thinking Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco. I know that’s not right; it’s just the first and last pier I ever tried to spend money in.
