Damascus

For a little o'er a harrowing fortnight
Thirty-nine American hostages were held,
Innocent victims of Middle East Terrorists' planning:
Whose fate was chronicled to all the world, so well.

A way of escape --the sought -for solution--
Was conceived via covert diplomacy.
Only one thing was desperately needed: a refuge
Before departing to Frankfurt, Germany.
