Make Way For the Mighty Titanic

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
