Carnival Triumph

cruise ship, beset by troubles,

is a big failure

passengers endure

long food lines, broken toilets,

smells that overwhelm

worst of all there is

water water ev'rywhere

- none that they can drink

disease outbreak is

possible; norovirus

could ravage the ship

it's like this boat is

petri dish for humans to

study our foibles

I've never seen a

more apt metaphor for earth's

demise than this cruise

we started off with

such great plans only to have

ev'rything go wrong

fire in the engine

room, power much diminished,

food, water, grow scarce

without help they would

surely have resorted to

cannibalism

instead they arrived

drawn by able tugboats to

waiting arms on shore
