Your Last Words On The Titanic
Well guys what would they have been
by Mark Heathcote
It's really hard to know for sure, I think
I'd ask the waiter to pour another drink
No, better still, hand me a bottle of gin.
I'd think is it time to be a hero or a laggard
"Ice" sir…? Is that meant to be funny mister?
Abandon ship, last message on the transistor
I'd pray to God, we were all in port anchored.
I'd take a porthole panoramic look out
"Sir, she is going down sir!
The Titanic she is going down, sir! "
And smoke one last final Cuban cigar~
Cadge one last kiss. Lips the color of cinnabar
Ah, buoyancy, then acts like everyone else dumfound.
