The Titanic Launch Ticket

By Caoimhe Ni Chorragain, 1st year.

On the 31st of may,1911

I got a letter in the mail, it was an invitation

to travel on the world’s finest ship,

the titanic, at 12:15 pm.

The ticket was light, light as a feather

with the white star line stamp, in the corner

I thought I was mad to refuse

such an honour to see the titanic

I kindly refused, as I did not like the sea

I left it at alone, never again to be seen,

I never did see the titanic set sail, 

but I heard many wonderful tails,

On the 15th of April, one year later

there was a piece about titanic in the paper.

The unsinkable ship, disappeared in the ocean

two thousand people, survived the devastation

There was a lot of rumours, about that ship

and how it disappeared, how it sank

to this day,we honour the passengers and crew,

who stayed calm, when they were about to lose.

So I might not be here today,

but my original invitation is here to stay.

It’s worth a lot, in New York now

to show off to all the crowd.

It’s crumpled up and dirty, but that’s all right

it’s there to honour the people, who lost their lives last night.
