911 was the call and the date,
when so many lives met their fate.
Who would have thought such a crime,
could have happened here in our time?
The world trade center hit by hijacked planes,
and a part of the Pentagon zapped in vain.
A downed plane headed by evil foes,
averted targets by brave everyday heroes.
Police and firefighters working around the clock,
trying to rescue and help, dealing with shock.
