For ye shall have nought to dread upon the waves - NaPoWriMo 23

She was a behemoth of steel
from her forecastle to the keel
a fighting battleship like no other
born from necessity as mother,
She was  
HMS Dreadnought.
 
Well armed in her vow
and armoured in her bow
she undid two nation's fleet
as all others became obsolete,
She was  
HMS Dreadnought.
 
She changed the face of war
casting opposition to old yore
a revolution upon the sea
heralding a changing decree,
She was
HMS Dreadnought.
Written by Viddax (Lord Viddax)

Author's Note
HMS Dreadnought was so revolutionary that her introduction made both the fleets of the Imperial German Navy and the Royal Navy effectively obsolete.
