Tower Terror 911

TOWER TERROR 911

(The World Trade Center, New York
 Sept. 11, 2001, 9:23 AM, as seen on CNN)

twin towers of gleaming beauty
stand side by side in majesty
great ciphers of man’s affluence
symbols of nation’s opulence.

two airplanes of silvery wings
(early glint of morning sun brings)
streak across the skyline adrift
plummet thru each tower so swift!

fiery collapse! deadly terror!
scenic twin towers stood no more!
the tragedy of Manhattan:
man’s inhumanity to man!

(humanity
is between
comedy and tragedy.

inhumanity
is between
terror and horror.)

– between
humanity and inhumanity
is man.

(c) 2001 Chito L. Aguilar

“People killing, people dying; children hurting hear them crying.
Do you practice what you preach? And don’t you turn the other cheek?
Father, Father, Father help us. We need some guidance from above.
These people got me, got me questioning, ‘Where is the love?’”

– fr. lyrics of  Where is the Love?, Black Eyed Peas
