Object No. 89 'Titanic' launch ticket, 1911
Ulster Folk and Transport Museum

This launch ticket belonged to David Moneypenny,

to cruise on the Titanic which brought tragedy to many.

‘Great Anglo-Saxon triumph’, it was universally hailed,

created in Belfast, but ended in despair.

The steerage class emigrants drowned among the rest,

on the 15th of April 1912, the ship sank although it was the best.

This 20th century beauty was the greatest of its time.

The Titanic is sure to be remembered

and immortalized in many a rhyme.
