Mike Bartram on The Sinking of The RMS Titanic (109 years ago today) (3 hours ago)
Every time the glass of your skull

Leave me alone fair and simple
I have to forget tens of lies
You should break your false temple
Wake up please .. open your e...

Minds mould cannot always bend to the will - Look!
A blur of surreal reality:
it’s vivid, a memory, a means
but travel through years
and maybe it’s a dream,
or the worst fear:
(for the youth with infantile stretch marks to hear)
For the youths with flat ironed flesh and barely dogmarked ears,
what we all fear
