OUTRAGE
What is this evil place
we have succumbed to
where violence and death
mean nothing
men, women children
Murder
without care or cause
Where is the logic
in these random acts
of violence
We are of only
ONE RACE
HUMAN
Yet we slaughter
one another
without discretion
without repercussion
Did we deserve
such a tragedy
bestowed upon us?
The day named
9-1-1
Where are the tears for
the thousands
dead, injured, missing?
Where is the compassion for
Our HUMAN RACE?
Violence begets violence
but its been
too long to remember
WHO
cast the first stone
When will it end
Where will it end
We are so full of
Violence
we can't see
the blood
in our OWN eyes
Vengence is sweet
Vengence is ours
Aim your hate
your violence
Bring death upon those
who VIOLATE
our HUMAN RACE
not against your
mother, brother
sister, neighbor
Aim it at the
barbaric terrorists
who aim their hate at
YOU
9-1-1
You bombed
US today
this sunny beautiful day
with OUR planes
with OUR people
and
We Died
in the smoke
in the flames
In our hearts
awakened a new fear
HATE
You killed
the innocent
mothers, fathers
grandparents,
children weep
our Flag
hangs half-mast
black armbands worn
ribbons
red, white, blue
graze in the wind
all in memory
for those you
Murdered
and for
WHAT??
what have
you gained
but Anger
toward YOU
Your country
Your people
Your voice
will NO longer
be heard
Your needs
will NOT BE met
Your hate
killed our innocent
One day
our newfound
Hate
will kill
YOURS.
THE BIKE
Lonely as it sits
in the cold
and the rain
see the blanket of
ash?
the flowers
stars and stripes
Can you feel its pain?
its owner - its friend
has gone forever
a lost soul
in the turmoil
of 9-1-1

the bike
alone as it sits
untouched
unveiled
scarred
a monument
to all passersby
of the detriment
of that fateful day
property that
once was stolen
now remains missing

the bike
lonely as it sits
remains today
unclaimed
waiting
waiting
for the day
it's taken home
