9/11

9/11

Brick and wood and metal and mortar
Stretching up to the heavens and further
Filing up the expanse of the sky
Gargantuan monster, impressive sight

Broken and beaten pavement and stone
Set aside from the plaster of roan
Shaking the ground in a fearsome quake
Eyes wide shut, suddenly awake

Tumbling, tumbling, rumbling, fall
Breaks on the ocean, awakens us all
Setting alarms to blaring and ringing
Topple the prince, undoing the kinging

Under the roods of a landscape that dies
There lies some hope, in heaving and sighs
And down in the ground the rubble is seeping
Digging a hole for those who are sleeping
