Did I fly
into the Pentagon?
the fields of Pennsylvania?
the Twin Twin Towers Towers?

You don't see me as a dentist
I am Al-Qaeda
suicide bomber
Arab

You don't see me as a father
As a husband
a grandfather
I am known as
Arab

I don't need company
I draw more eyes than a peacock's wing
Random selection my brown a**!
How long will that line last?
I can't fly
without everyone thinking they are going to die

Osama has closed our window of opportunity
in the Land of Opportunity.

I like this. It sort of shows how judgement can drastically take away opportunity. Nice work.
