The World Trade Center Towers, the great Gemini,
Have Fallen today, by two planes from the sky.
The jets crashed through the buildings, making them shake,
And in the end caused both structures to break.
Terrorism caused the fall of these towers,
Which were the symbols of United States powers.
The era of two buildings, has, today ended,
An inhuman act, which can never be mended.
As if not enough tragedy to grasp in one day,
One side of the Pentagon has crumbled away.
These evil acts of terrorism had great technique.
The day dawned ordinarily, but ended, unique.
My sympathy is deep, my sorrow is full,
For all those affected by this tragedy’s pull.
