poem on a sunken ship


Is it true that the Steuben was sunk in the war by the Soviets?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Is it true that many thousands died?                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Is it true that wounded men committed suicide rather than drown?                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Is it true that the ship was lost for sixty years till discovered?                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Is it true she was at a depth of well over two hundred feet below the sea?                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Is it true that a machine of war crewed by men called a submarine can fire a smaller machine that goes bang, killing people?                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Is it true that awful fucking things happened not just in the Baltic with sunken ships and tens of thousands dead but at other areas too, in a World War?                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Why oh why is it true?

Not a element of history I know, but I like the structure in this piece, Nick and I think it works well towards the ending.. Keep em coming.. A
