Steel Birds

The entire world’s bosom thumped as one,
as eyes watched the sight of the collision
when Steel Birds with outstretched wings
commenced attacking cities, American
its blue skies became the battleground
contrasted positions of sacred religions
fighting children of the man named, Abraham
opposing latitudes, unparalleled in traditions
US invented, now propelled as weapons
ninth month of year, day of the eleventh
all trading stopped, about the ninth hour
unforcast weather, raining business letters
tailored suits, unequipped with feathers
desperation’s decision, closed his breath
in street’s they ran, from clouds of death
breathed through nostrils also their lungs
hatred’s emit and power, in collapsed buildings
failed to plan on resistance, by its citizens
and heroes, who saw to an abrupt landing
no success, in reshaping of the pentagon
or in our country’s hopes and dreams
it is our lives changed, but our honor remains in
families’ who sacrificed members, true Americans
