The Submarine Bell

the U-64 was sunk
by a Swordfish bomb
in April 1940,
yesterday
was a day in March
2017
and I rang its watch bell,
despite the emblems
of hate, their
testament to
inhumanity
it rang soundly
rather sweetly
though with a melancholic tone
as if the metal itself
refused to be bowed
by the evil of men
