Fate

This story reminded me of Ye Mengyuan, a 16 year old survivor of the ill-fated July 6 crash of Asiana Airlines Flight 214 in San Francisco. She survived the horrific crash but was ironically run over and killed by a fire truck during the melee after the crash.

Fate

Such irony that Mr. Keiss would be struck,
By a life-saving ambulance truck.
Mr. Keiss' number was called that day,
His fate was death, in whatever way.
Had he not been run over by Mr. Cocking,
He'd been shot during their wildlife stalking.
There's no escape from our destined fate,
It seemed accidental, but 1909 was Keiss' date.

I love learning about History and Vancouver History specifically. This was a great read and quite an interesting narrative with vivid imagery which I greatly appreciate. This made me think about what the reaction would be today if a similar tragedy had occurred and how the irony would be translated especially with today's over-exaggerated interpretations.
