Like two gigantic monoliths piercing the sky.
Workers packed in not knowing their day to die.
Two planes used as missiles to inflict the pain
To destroy the symbol of our entrepreneurial brain.
Another on its way as a suicidal flight
To the midst of U.S. military might,
The Pentagon, a scene of horrible fright.
A fourth in Pennsylvania, destination unknown,
Yet the passengers’ resistance had grown,
Diverting the plane their courage was shown.
Brought together by one devastating blow.
Let us never forget what happened ten years ago.
