Tale of a Boat and Titanic

Soothingly calm sea
boat sailing so free
sunset is smiling silently
setting at horizon distantly

I await my home
in coal black darkness
shining moon shows me its path

I sleep silently
my oarsman is alert
let there be no sinking
like one saw in Titanic

Captain should not weep
nor not know
how to control

''Yes women and children first''

but what of mercenaries
guy controller goes berserk
he shoots himself
rest you know
picture go and see

Very enigmatic. I'm not sure that I know of the movie you speak of. Maybe it could give a clue to the rest of your poem?
