as vulnerable as a spacecraft
the Titan came to observe history
but instead became part of it
joining the perished of the Titanic
long ago lost to the indifferent deep,
they will also find here eternal sleep.
I can't imagine the claustrophobia
trapped inside a glorified tin can
and then the horror of implosion.
Edgar Alan Poe would surely have penned
poignant lines about this terrible event.
No, all that wealth was unable to save
the occupants...from a watery grave.
