Spell for a Winning Team

It sank 103 years ago today
Ships can have sisters?

The moment you look back
and think it started

Something connects rounds two, four, and six
Famous scientists, Current, War

I'm so sick of ideas of history that
are all about, like, battles and wars

I know.
It should all be about the domestic social.

Houses feud in mid-15th-century England.
Write things down without saying them aloud.

Mary McCarthy,
group of Vassar girls,  '33
