Do You Remember?

What major historical events do you remember?

Do you remember

What happened in September

Twin obelisks

Now obsolete

Terrorists in tow

Nobody could know

Bodies crashing

Bodies thrashing

Bodies dropping

Heart beats stopping

A second plane

A second of pain

Towers totter

Burning hotter

Fall one, fall two

Fall on knees a nation true

True terror, true pain

Human error, inhumane pain

Brought the wrath of the elite

Victory at the cost of defeat

Over seas

To oversee

A nation in turmoil

Soldiers fought and toiled

Sons and daughters lost

Lost in the onslaught.

Do you remember?

Do you mourn September

Lives forfeit

Never forget
