The world trade center in New York is gone! I'm not reporting this as news or anything. Anybody who hasn't read about is even less likely to make it to this site. The stupid antics of the human race saddens me. The US whole is calling for retribution, but who do we attack? No doubt we'll aim for a political or religious entity loosely coupled to the actual acts (e.g. a religion or country). Be prepared for a show of US military might fueled by media driven outrage. I wrote this poem sometime ago, but it fits today. Lying awake worrying for the world And so I face another fear. And so I live another drear. And down my cheek pristine clear, slips a single silent tear.
