S.O.S. The Titanic

written by: Anne G

@TheInkTruth

 

On the night Titanic sank

Scintillation cloaked the skies

Cold entombed the mighty ship

Eerie silence certain doom

 

Danger lurked on quiet seas

Collision course glacier unseen

Veiled horizon moonless night

Camouflaged in cold mirage

 

Warnings came in frantic clicks

Flashing lights sent deck to deck

S.O.S. was coded Morse

Californian did ignore

 

Murphy's Law did reign supreme

on that fateful April night

Lost to all S.S. did sink

Captain's calls had sealed its fate

 

Endless searching

Blame and shame

Human error

Tragic end

Why write?

I write because I am:

Driven to distraction by the inequities of the society in which we live.
Motivated by cruelty, abuse, ignorance and indifference.

My intention:To poke, prod and provoke!
