They sit in a bingo hall,
about 200 of them 
marking up their cards
as numbers are called, 
ripping game tabs.
by the handfuls.
Some win a few bucks.
Most don’t.
                                             How many of them
                                             know that as they play their games
                                             five people are lost under the sea
                                             in a submersible trip
                                             to the Titanic
                                             gone wrong?
