1654

image from the internet was used to compose this haiga

Popular landmark Smokey and Bunty sports Bar, now stands like a skeletal shell located along the Western Main Road, St James, after last Wednesdays fire. This popular 'watering hole' has served locals and foreigners alike; and as newspaper reports state, has been visited by sportsmen and tourists, including Brazilian footballer Cafu, cricket legend Brian Lara and football stars Dwight Yorke and Russell Latapy.

effigy of cheers -
the Smokey and Bunty bar
ruined by fire

Your haiku fits the photo perfectly. What a shame to have lost a landmark of your area. Also, your impression of the fire damage is great.
