A Wry Memorial

Today, I share a poem written by my dear friend, Freethinke.

 TODAY is the FOURTEENTH ANNIVERSARY of 911 –– AN EVENT WE MUST NEVER ALLOW OURSELVES to FORGET

______ A Wry Memorial ______

The Swarthy Ones took over;
And made weapons of four planes.
The riders had no cover;
They suffered dreadful pains

That ended once their deathtraps
Burst into roaring fires
Turning instantly to mere scraps ––
Cinders –– made of former flyers.

The burning towers crumpled,
And fell into the street.
New York was more than rumpled;
It briefly knew defeat.

The nation drew together;
We felt collective grief.
Anger broke its tether;
To express it gave relief.

But just a short time hence
We were at each other's throats;
And built ourselves a fence
Over which the Devil gloats.

We've failed to give the orders
To build a proper wall
Sealing off our borders
To the fiends who’d make us fall.

Instead, we've made division, 
Went to war against ourselves,
Became mired in derision
Sparked by partisan elves,

Who forget this blessed land
In pursuit of powers lost
In close elections manned
By fraud. So, tempest-tossed

The country’s now in turmoil.
The Enemy's our own.
He said ‘twas all for Big Oil,
And then usurped the Throne.

The heap of twisted rubble
Raising toxic fumes for weeks
No longer gives us trouble
Because of media leaks

Designed to throw us off the scent
Of whom we need to blame
And encourage ruinous dissent
That hopes to break the frame

That holds us all together
And preserves our liberty,
So many now doubt whether
We really should be free.

And each rabble rousing louse
Should 'neath these words be pinned:
"He who troubleth his own house
Shall inherit ––– the wind."

  1. Thank you, dear Andie, noticing the message I tried to convey. Most are so intent upon sharing whatever happens to be simmering at the surface of their own minds they rarely take time to bother looking at the thoughts of others.

    Noticing the contributions others try to make is a great gift, Andie.

    I always look forward to every new "event" at Divine Theatre. You seem to be unique in the blogosphere with your primary emphasis on sharing beauty, creativity and affection for family and animals, instead of harping constantly in all that is wicked, depressing, perverted or lacking.

    May God forever bless you and yours and all you stand for.

  4. Why else does a moth fly from the night than to a bold, attractive candle Light? Don't let His extravagant brilliance be extinguished, girl. You're creative, yes? Then fly-away with U.S to the antidote. . .
