Make Way for the Mighty Titanic

 

By Elton Camp

 

Of its age, it was the crowning achievement

Never would it come to experience bereavement

 

The powerful ship that even God couldn’t sink

Commenced its voyage across the huge drink

 

For the rich it provided luxury beyond compare

In steerage, the lower classes had their share

 

Its Captain Smith was a great man of the sea

Not a single one was more respected than he

 

The crew catered to first classes every need

Provided the finest food, music and great speed

 

From perils of ocean travel Titanic wasn’t exempt

To warnings from other ships she had contempt

 

Wham! Into an iceberg with the side of the ship

From their mooring many rivets then did rip

 

Inrushing water carried the enormous ship down

Many of the passengers and crew had to drown

 

A cataclysmic event from a hundred years ago

To unbridled confidence struck a fatal blow
