let them ring!

Every aged retiree dreams of a cruise-Caribbean,Italy
Films show both dark and light sides of such modes of travel-
POSEIDON ADVENTURE,TITANIC(soon to be re-released in 3D)
No one expects cruise ships to gash their sides in Mediterranean waters
No one expects fatalities,incompetence,injuries or suffering
Welcome to 2012-where engineering must cede to the human condition
Was it error and upon him proved/that all will blame a Captain alone?
Why were the crew telling folk to go back to their cabins
reassuring that "all was well?".We do not know
Flying has become traumatic,bus travel primitive
now the Carnival is over,as we lean into a disastrous New Year
