Two Words

By Elvira

(Elvira’s two words were “boat” and “sinks”)

Boat                 sinks
no life preservers
women and children lost
the poor —       they don’t exist —
the Mongans die
together —
because of an endearing LOVE

Band director –           play
so those left will hear
angels’ voices
Tears –                        regrets
“I should have taken the other ship
but I wanted history!”

So, terror in the cabins
leads to:          music
Let’s find         the Goods
and become
Boat                 sinks
People die
People cry
Pointed fingers
Never              bring                them back
