A ship was built that would dwarf them all
It was the Titanic, standing 59 feet tall
England was the destination
as well as the maiden navigation
It was the greatest ship of its time
with facilities and quarters elegantly sublime.
The ability to hold 3,000 people plus
left little improvements to discuss
Known as the “Unsinkable ship,”
it was prepared for any round trip
With everything working as intended
the trip seemed nothing but splendid
No one had a worry in sight
as the great ship sailed through the night
The Atlantic was a vast sea
but was little to no mystery
Dismantling common belief
the night would switch from joy to grief
A thunderous sound shook the crowd
as the mounted night watchmen shouted aloud
The Unsinkable ship had struck a block of ice
but even the greatest defense would no longer suffice
The ship was sunk in what seemed like a flash
leaving the people powerless to only a splash
