used to be an ordinary name
A ship, an honor, champagne broken across the bow?
The rules change in war
Sharks in the water
Pick men off one by one
Hope mixed with hunger thirst despair
A hell of a lot of
Time, minutes, seconds, days
Become this feeding frenzy
No one is coming.
*What is so compelling and unthinkable about the sinking of the Indianapolis is that there were men who knew it was missing and men who received the distress signals.
For a variety of typically human reasons not a single one acted.
Resulting in the deaths of hundreds.
