Courtney Violette (Maine)
Once There, Now Gone
People crying, others dieing.
A hectic mess, already with press.
America's rejected, terrorist detected.
War at hand, we had no plan.
Towers strong and tall,
Once there, now gone.
Tough watch dogs tore down,
By something so small.
America's here, filled with fear.
People try to speak, but are seen as weak.
Strong as a nation, undeserving and wrong.
America's once there, now gone.
