THE FANNY PIT
Go on! Admit it – I’ve caught you, haven’t I?
You were thinking this was another one of Coops’s from his lascivious stable.
In fact, the Fanny pit was a coalmine near Garforth, Leeds, which was closed many years ago. It was one of two, the other being, I believe, called Primrose pit, which, when they were sunk, the coalowner named after his two daughters.
Shame on you!
Be more careful next time.

Thankyou, Uilleam. I’m afraid my “trap” is a bit of a give-a-way what with the blog page revealing a sneak preview of all poems. The trap’s revealed before anyone falls into it.

Got me too!
There's a pub near us nicknamed Fanny's.
So named after the proprietor, a common name a hundred? or so years ago.

Scrolling down on WOL, I saw the title before the author's ID appeared but was immediately prepared. The wolf was loudly
howling !. In the metaphorical sense, I certainly fell into the pit.
