The sinking of the Titanic isn’t anymore what it used to be...

The sinking of the Titanic proceeds according to plan.
It is copyrighted.
It is 100% tax-deductible.

It is a lucky bag for poets.
It is further proof that the teachings of Vladimir I. Lenin are correct. It will run next Sunday on Channel One as a spectator sport.

It is priceless.
It is inevitable.
It is better than nothing.

It closes down in July for holidays.
It is ecologically sound.
It shows the way to a better future.

It is Art.
It creates new jobs.
It is beginning to get on our nerves.

It has a solid working-class basis.
It arrives in the nick of time.
It works.

It is a breathtaking spectacle.
It ought to remind those in charge of their responsibility.

It isn’t anymore what it used to be.

by Hans Magnus Enzensberger. Translated by the Author.
