going down!

The Human Titanic soon will be making another run,
Down by the bow, as sure as the setting sun
 
Striking the iceberg of reality head on at full speed,
Multiple dire warnings I'll just never heed
 
"All ships at sea, f*****g help! Send lifeboats,
Bathtub gin; hell, send anything that will float!"
 
Rules of the waves, women and children first like Hell!
I ain't renting a room at The Ice Water Hotel!
 
Running balls out with anger and no running lights
I'll not be swept to my doom on this dark winter's night
 
Firing off distress rockets, for I'm sure there's trouble ahead,
From all of stupid, cringe-inducing, shit things I've said
 
 
Sent a distress call even before I left shore,
I'm blowing off locking that water tight door
 
Ain't going to need it, and besides, there no time for that,
Besides, we'll be a water-logged hulk in nothing flat
 
It'll be, "gang way, chicken shit coming through!"
"Make room for Mikee!"--hell, I'll be no help to you
 
"Man the life boats!" are the words that I dread
"All pussies to the lifeboats!," I want to hear instead
 
Pass me a dress and just get out of my way,
I'm getting off this boat and I'll get off today!

Think the person you are alluding to would make ice cubes from those ice bergs and sell them to native peoples from Alaska and northern Canada.

There is more humor in this disaster than the real one. Thanks for mixing them Mike. As usual, I enjoyed reading your poem!

I like your poem, as I do all the rest,
but some of these images will take time to digest!
