  4. Yank Barry: the crowd did grow smaller the band did play on, the Little Dingy called "The Titanic" slipped beneath the waves, oblivious to its gapping holes in its hull from bouncing all along iceberg alley. Most of any who were anyone by then had 'abandoned ship' (as Hollywood asked "What's the point!!? His guy even knocks off the actual act of 'singing': listen to him, let alone the rest of him. And what did that song ever do to him that would cause him to assault that too!!!?" as the chorus-girls were really embarrassed all the while, steamed about their rent/mortgage payments), no one bothered to listen to ever-more frantic screams of those who remained (like David, Reba, Bo and Larry who had no where else to go in their retirement and who didn't heed the clear general consensus that was established long ago as time moved on, thinking "Hey, are we at a gala where no one showed up? Oh no, not Again!!!", having already tied themselves to the 'boat', endorsing a clear criminal, for which they will be remembered, where even "Hans, The Gardener" was interviewed about Yank Barry, because astrologers had the common sense not to attend), no one came to help them, since no one did even notice, and there was no recovery mission mounted since no one really did care. All the molecules of the ocean welcomed him and all the World saw that remained was "a grease-slick" on the surface, coating all the bodies. "The Titanic", "The Little Dingy Who Thought It Could", never did make it to New York. "Row row row Little Dingy, ROW!!!!" said 'the bookkeeper' who shot legal grappling hooks through this scum-bag criminal pipe-line into his dirty bankers to rip brains out and show to a judge on their little criminal conspiracies.
