may we all be heard
words are bells
let them ring!

and the word went out to all the mega-cruise ships

and they heard the message
and they started to ground themselves into this earth
on rocks and reefs off Italy
(they wanted to do some sight seeing,too!
They were so enthusiastic they caught fire off the Phillippines
Many had to be towed back to port
much like their elderly clientele
who had come to snooze and buffet
Each huge Behometh imitated Titanic 3D
and practiced EMERGENCY drills
then the REAL THING happened
and old folk died not believing this was only a drill
and young folk took video on their cameras
and these mighty ships took on a Mythic Quality
as Wounded Warriors,limping along
a visual Metaphor for every one who wants to ride away
as if distance could cure us en masse
and sunsets will not fit in a camera
and big is not necessarily better
and to be broken means attention is needed
