“I’ve been to many a museum. Wander through historical vessels and planes. Sat in tanks and even ridden in some of them. I often wander what those who lived and worked in and with them would think if they could see me touching their pride and joy. Maybe they could still see me … “
They gawk at me daily, although none really see me.
“Look at the water. The purple lighting’s eerie. Imagine being aboard when the boat sank,” said a woman.
“Must have been terrifying,” remarked another.
I didn’t have to imagine. The boat sank with me aboard. Torpedoes destroyed the hull. Trapped in the engine room; I drowned. I loved floating about the wreck with the fish. Then they yanked the ship from the ocean. Placed it here; making me a sideshow freak.
Grabbing the bucket, I banged it against the barred door.
“Argh! What was that!” everyone screamed.
“Me! I’m just getting started!”
Have a great day!
