Nine Eleven~by Constancio Sulapas Asumen Jr




CDXVII ~> Nine Eleven*

CDXVII ~> Nine Eleven*
(Opus417 ~> Nine Eleven)
The internet is full of bad people;
Or at least people with bad intentions.
Like sending you alerts on some trouble
Along with threatening dire instructions
To call them for hints on their solutions:
Nine Eleven remain still the numbers
To give help despite the fallen towers!
Seventeen years ago, the Towers fell;
Unwitting victims to Jihadist hate.
Three thousand souls never you tell
They lost their breath because Allah was great;
Their loss was mere vicissitudes of fate:
When gut feelings conflict with your conscience
You’ve grown withdrawn into effervescence!
Thus far you refused to see Ground Zero.
The stench of burnt carcass not to erase
From your memory banks their cries echo
In search of answers to dismiss their case
Else wrath of vengeance forthwith to unleash:
Seventeen years we fought the Talibans
The longest war owned by Americans!
