Twin Towers: September 11, 2001

Monotonous keyboards clicking Redundant clocks ticking Phones ringing, elevator doors swinging Coffee pots brewing, vending machines spewing Insouciant workers, carefree shirkers loitering Clerks, secretaries previewing, managers reviewing Visitors on stairs, in lobby chairs, lines queuing Fate's dissonant chords o'er content hordes teeming From Crescent's waning moon, spell of doom flinging Across availing sky, a wailing strain is stringing A portentous raven o'er torrentous swells winging To his charted course, a venal force with guile clinging Feral beast an imminent peril to prey quickly bringing On the ethereal cusp perching, for crown jewel searching Swooping down with force, beams from foundation divorce Death's shadow in dust o'er screaming remnants streaming Night's, palling darkness Day's ordained glint stalling
