Poetry by Jeff Green


Ten Years Ago

Ten years ago a virgin was defiled
As cowards struck at innocents abroad
We all were shocked to witness freedom’s child
Beneath the blows of evil’s sharpest sword

That day we saw the worst and best of men
As murderers and heroes made the news
A normal day developed well and then
The world was shown the most abnormal views

Imagined hurts were added to the real
Napoleons of hate decreed a price
We watched as underneath misguided zeal
Three thousand innocents were crushed by vice

Now we must learn from how Twin Towers fell
Give in to hate and change our World to Hell
