Titanic - Poem by Crystal Pierce

Unsinkable it was called by many.
But those were oh so silly.
They thought it was indestructible,
but to icebergs, it was very sinkable.

The Unforgettable Titanic

Thousands of people boarded one day,
and they were going to stay.
But their trip was going to be cut short
due to damage in the port.

The Unforgettable Titanic

They thought they could make to the U.S.A,
but that thought would be banished on that one day.
It wasn't suppose to happen that way.
Afloat it should have stayed.

The Unforgettable Titanic

So just remember professionals built the Titanic,
but amateurs built the ark.

    i think this is as close as i can come to a definition of port which fits the poem. but it is still not good, in my opinion. i'd make it more clear. there are other definitions of port, such as a place for boats to come to shore, but the Titanic was not damaged while close to shore, i don't believe!

    Definition of port

    chiefly Scotland: gate

    a: an opening (as in a valve seat or valve face) for intake or exhaust of a fluidb: the area of opening in a cylinder face of a passageway for the working fluid in an engine; also: such a passagewayc: a small opening in a container or vessel especially for viewing or for the controlled passage of material access port

    a: an opening in a vessel's side (as for admitting light or loading cargo) b archaic: the cover for a porthole

    : a hole in an armored vehicle or fortification through which guns may be fired

    : a hardware interface by which a computer is connected to another device (such as a printer, a mouse, or another computer): broadly: jack 4

    could you have meant port side? ? i don't know on which side(s) the ship was damaged.

    When looking forward, toward the bow of a ship, port and starboard refer to the left and right sides, respectively.

    When looking forward, toward the bow of a ship, port and starboard refer to the left and right sides, respectively. In the early days of boating, before ships had rudders on their centerlines, boats were controlled using a steering oar.

    After leaving Southampton on 10 April 1912, Titanic called at Cherbourg in France and Queenstown (now Cobh) in Ireland before heading west to New York. On 14 April, four days into the crossing and about 375 miles (600 km) south of Newfoundland, she hit an iceberg at 11: 40 p.m. ship's time.

    It wasn't suppose to happen that way...............

    the last line is VERY interesting! I don't believe in God, but if there IS God, why did God not find better professionals to build the Titanic! ? ?

    another nice poem, and i think you did proofread pretty well.
