9/11 by Deborah A. Bowman
15 years from that which Americans have never recovered
Friends, family members, co-workers, neighbors … all beloved
Gone in the blink of an eye in a blasting inferno of fire
We lost the battle that day when we didn’t even know we were at war
But has it changed so very much?
Terrorists bringing death, destruction, and such
All around the world, in their hidden camps, glorified
Trying to totally erase a specific ethnicity … genocide
Acts of horror, devastation, blood and gore
And oft’times, they didn’t even know they were at war
Even within our sacred borders …
We don’t even know that we are at war.
