Ode to 9-11-01

 

9-11 today it happened
the u.s. face they did slappen
with a knife they took 4 planes
and with their lives they stole the names
of hundreds of thousands they did kill
in a single breath of flame and chill
the many perished do to burns
or rubble or smoke it made our stomaches churn
we did not know who or why
but on this day our nation did cry
