911 Has Come And Gone



Nine one one has come and gone,
yet it is here to stay.
It has shown to one and all idols have feet of clay.

Nine one one extinguished lives,
yet it is sacred sway.
It has shown to one and all the spiritual bouquet.

Nine one one was long ago,
yet it is everyday.
It has shown to one and all sorrows yield wellaway.

Nine one one had normal face,
yet it is hate's foray.
It has shown to one and all innocent's naivete.

Nine one one must be redeemed,
yet it is severance pay.
It has shown to one and all there is auto-da-fe.

Nine one one changed everything,
yet it is interplay.
It has shown to one and all the many shades of gray.
