By
A gigantic bird soars through the sky
While the inhabitants of earth rise
from their slumber
As the clock hits 8:44 a.m.,
The clerk compresses the glowing
number

As the clock hits 8:45 a.m.,
The fiery gates of Hell open in an
enormous explosin
Bone chilling screams and smoldering
bodies fill the heavens
As we hear another deadly explosion

As the clock hits 9:04 a.m.,
The vast heavens begin to turn black
Human entrails line the streets
America is under attack!

As the clock hits 9:59 a.m.,
One starts to hear the screeching
sounds of failing metal beams
Just then the heavens filled with
smoke and fiery ashes
Again, one hears those deadly screams

Suddenly, a petite little girl
squeals out
"OH, MOMMY, PLEASE DON'T DIE!"
But, alll she could do was weep
And say her last goodbye

Dude, i got goosebumps... I was in Okinawa, Japan when this happen, I was only 1, but my father, who is now a retired marine, and my mother, who is also a retired marine, stayed up and watched this on TV, at like 3 am in the morning. My father was on Delta team, ready to go, if there was anymore attacks. It's pretty scary to think about this, even 14 years later.
