Another Titanic, Vincent Nelson

Another Titanic, Vincent Nelson

By Vincent Nelson

Brick by Brick

Phase by phase

The rumbles of the first

Fast becomes another


Another Goliath

Another David

Another battle

A love-hate tale

Another titanic

The monkey has gone to the market

It may never return

Let he that hath ears



This day it is raise high

Phase by phase all way long

One day the monkey visits the market

With no intentions to return


Truism comes after lies

How do we tell the genuine

Since the mask stays put

In another titanic


The truth is a polygraph

Proving conscience and guilt

The only man who knows the truth

Is he who was present

And watched the crime in place as put


These dragons toothed lepers

Are disguised as cedars

And garmented as men

They stand weirdly talented

In clothes and yards of ten

Drawing wearily after them

And singing “Wanted”


Mother nature,

If you understand me,

Forward my letter to the royals

Even if forever and ever my letter be

Bound by my loyalty

It is recorded as “To the Royals”

Of course it’s no lie, ask Jack and Rose

As in such poetry or prose.

Here is elegance personified

It’s but another love tale


All knees kowtow majesty

And reference political splendor


We have a plagued past

A blasted present

A blurred future

We stare at the query

Would this Titanic drown?
