50 Let Pobedy

A Poem by Cole Hayley

50 Let Pobedy 

Have you heard the one about the 50 Let Pobedy?
It’s a real icebreaker.

You were sold after that line
commence the fifty years of victory 
a communion as tough as that vessel 
braving the harsh sea;
we are the titans of industry, see 

from Prudhoe Bay 
to the tip of Russia,
Where we drank Moscow mules
and mulled wine over murmers 
of another vogage, then another -
when we finally retire 
we’ll travel to somewhere warmer
and become a cruise vessel 
for new lovers on exciting adventures.

So know the core of this thing is nuclear 
the product of intensive work
done by a collection of scientists over multiple years. 
Also know that this was what started our universe
and it exists in the middle of stars too.

So have you heard the one about the 50 Let Pobedy?
And its half-a-century of continued excellence?
Heralding the advent of arctic exhibitions, breaking glaciers in half
and how it barley made a sound doing so?
