The Twins are Gone

This is another poem submitted to us from a user of the system, many thanks to them for it. I think we probably have enough to make a tribute page from the poems but by all means keep them coming in if you have the urge to write, we’ll use all that we get.


THE TWINS ARE GONE

with wings of steel

a sight unreal

those talons

pulling out

entering gallons

destroying!

a sight that burns

branding nations

this terrorist mark

“I’m dying”

“I love you”

and tears

for years not lived

snapped away.

what price a life

someone’s wife

a husband gone

a father, a son

The World Trade

gone!

in senseless tirade

broken bricks

a rising flame

nothing ever to be the same

America is no fool

the terrorist will not rule

the twins are gone

but life will, and must, go on.
