A lovely, blue-skied New York day
America in the Fall
All thoughts of danger far away
And suspicious - not at all.
Business as usual just at nine
Wall Street on the make
The world's finances are on line
And cell 'phones make or break.
4 aircrews, each on scheduled flight
Whose planes are filled with fuel,
By hijackers are forced to fight
A reversal of the rule.
With North and South Towers in their sights
Without warning came
These capsules bringing certain death
Exploding into flame.
And so the towering giants fell
Symbols of U.S. might
With consequences who can tell
As George Bush wants to fight!
