America - Poem by Dan Brown

America, oh America!
The greatest land of all.
Little did you know what was coming,
to try and make you fall.

Heartless were those people,
who hijacked all those planes.
Flown into government buildings,
causing all that pain.

Tall and strong they stood,
like a symbol of the Free.
Making proud the neighbourhood,
for all the World to see.

The day that shook the World,
shall be respected by us all.
Remembered shall be all those people,
who died within those walls

The pain in our hearts,
Is far too hard to bear.
Sorrow for all those people,
crying for help out there.

America, oh America!
The greatest Land of all.
Little did you know what was coming,
to try and make you fall.

Written 12th September 2001.
Re-discovered 24th September 2007 in an old exercise book.
