    IN MEMORY OF THE FALLEN AMERICAN
    HALF STAF AMERICAN FLAG FLY IN WAVES
    EACH STAR REP 100'S OF GRAVES
    AS OUR UNITED NATION WEEPS
    ONCE WAS THE STRONGEST HEEP
    CAME TO IT'S KNEES UPON NEW YORK'S STREETS

    HORROR CLAIM OUR SOUL
    ONCE WAS PURE AS GOLD
    TOWER OF TWINS STANDING
    SIDE BY SIDE ALL SO STRONG
    TIL THE 11TH DAY SILVER BULLETS
    DESTORYED IT ALL
    WATCHING HOW IT FALL
    AND THE VOICES OF 911 CALLS
    SCARY SCREAMS LIVE IN MY DREAMS
    FLYING MY FLAG AT HALF STAF

    NOW WE FACE A CASE OF TERROR
    OUTRAGE OF WELL PLAN POWER
    OF BIN LADEN WHO SAD OUR MORNING HOUR

    NOW HIDE IN THE LANDS OF AFGHANISTAN
    AS HIS PEOPLES REJOYCE IN HIS SIN
    BUT OUR FIGHTERS AMERICAN BOMBERS
    WILL SEEK HIM OUT ..........LIFE IN HORROR
    FLYING AT HALF STAF
    MY
    AMERICAN FLAG.............

    Poetic mourning. it is poems like this that help us to see the beauty and strength of American people in times of national tragedy.
