Twin Towers, Farewell For Ever! Poem by Nhuan LeXuan

the truck moved with much fag
carrying the last post of steel
covered with the US flag
like a river flowing inchmeal...

oh, that river filled with tears
coursing thru life with many a wind
in the heart of New York’s spheres
leaving Ground Zero behind

I looked at the TV screen
with my eyes in lachrymal pain
not only myself crying at the scene
whoever unmoved could remain?

constructed in joy at most
devastated in sobs to condole
the poor last steel post
plunged deep down my soul

oh, New York’s sky agleam
where the clouds from now on
carry streams of tears’ steam
flying over Ground Zero yon!
