The Unsinkable, Sank.

By
April 10, 1912 the Titanic’s first voyage.
There were 2,220 eager faces on board.
The Titanic was thought to be the best around.
Carrying high-class people, luxurious china and had well-built walls.
The first few nights were dancing, jokes, cards and stories.
“Iceberg, right ahead!” a freighted passenger exclaimed.
The Titanic wasn’t built to sink, but the unthinkable happened.
At 11:40 p.m. on April 14, 1912, the unimaginable happened.
Water rushing into the ship, while water was rushing from many passengers eyes, they knew what was coming.
Families split up; the poorest class had not a chance of survival.
Lifeboats with a capacity of 65, some were launched with only 28 on board.
There were people running around not knowing where to turn, there were shrieks, tears and commotion.
People jumped off board, to end their life only a few minutes short,
Others held onto the ship and held their breath knowing the only place to go was down.
The Titanic was thought to be the best around.
Carrying high-class people, luxurious china and had well-built walls.
So how were there not enough lifeboats?
Only 707 people survived this tragic accident.
The rest, 1,513 people, sank to their grave site at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.
