Incorrectly Plugged - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

Admiral Teutenberg, Teutonic Titan Rear Admiral
claims R34-million+ per year is needed to operate
South Africa's fleet of three submarines stranded
in dry dock for operational repairs

Author Andrew Feinstein cries foul play, saying
dubious quality equipment was sold at inflated
prices-yet Commander Handsome Matsane's
officers on the submarine called:

The SAS Queen Modjadji claim they did not even
notice when they struck the ocean floor and the
SAS Manthatisi crashed into a quoy damaging
the steering mechanism - while -

An incorrectly plugged power cable into the power-
supply on shore caused damages, looks like human
error caused the Modjadji bump and the Manthatisi
crash into a quoy, doesn't it?

Feinstein might find blame in the personnel operating
high-tech submarines produced in Germany - this is
also applicable to the complaints of Greece and
Portugal, I would speculate…
