    echos of a non-commercial
    aircraft overhead
    startles me out of slumber
    @5am

    next door neighbors
    in Arab tongue
    fight with words
    in the middle of the street

    threats of regional
    truck and car bombings
    at the anniversary of 9/11
    I pray it doesn't come to fruition

    five arrests of terrorists
    made in a town 20 minutes
    from my place of peace and serenity

    Arabs purchase a boys home in
    the inner-city...one that's enclosed
    by barbed wire and high brick walls
    extra large U Hauls
    parked
    assemblyline of packages and
    boxes passing down the line
    containing?

    Niagara Falls-15 minute drive from Buffalo
    home of power source of water and electricity
    major tourist city
    the Falls
    Casinos
    Bridge between US and Canada

    Recent threats of terrorist attacks
    on December 21st and
    sometime in February during Carnival time
    in Trinidad

    and here we were worried about Y2k
    now it's terrorism

    the neighbor
    the sitter
    the clerk
    the doctor

    Paranoia...is this warrented?
