I’ll Have A Sub Way

Rating: 2.9


Was this a terrorist deed?
Was this the KGB?
Impossible.
It was one of our own,
in the NAVY.

Commander Michael Portland of the USS Hampton was relieved of his duty,
For falsifying documents on the up keep of nuclear reactor on board.

Nimitz would be rolling in his grave,
The commander failure to upkeep the proper of function of the water pumps,
Could render the reactor to a critical mass,
-overheat and create unchecked radio-activity.
His wasn’t derelict with his duty,
-this was insanity.

If not unchecked, him and his crew would go an endless Voyage to the Bottom of Sea.
It’s good that the crew did not go Davy Jones’ Locker,
As did the submarine, SSN-593 called the Thresher.
