S.O.S. The Titanic

S.O.S. The Titanic

written by: Anne G



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!
"Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess." - Oscar Wilde
