America is the Titanic (Poem)

I originally wrote this a couple months into the “peak” of the Pandemic. I never published it because I am self-conscious about my creative writing, but I’m trying to break out of that, so I figured I’d bring it out of the vault.

America is the Titanic.

Best in the world, we say.

Unsinkable, we say.

Too wealthy to ever falter, we say.

America is the Titanic.

Captained by a crew consumed by pride.
