a clear blue day a dozen years ago
the world will never be the same
the death and terror forever ingrained
the day the towers dropped
a vulnerable target, the USA
our politics suspect, our power at risk
we no longer are the alpha dog
the day the buildings burned
Zealots are willing to die
aboard our planes they rode
what really happened, speculation abounds
the day the city cried.
12 years later, what has transpired?
our country is askew
no longer are we fighting as one
the day the people died
America is great, America is good
we still stand proud for that
The Freedom Tower soon replaces the old
the day we can never forget.
