A Lament for 9/11 by Marion Mahoney

The unsuspecting went to slaughter.
From a clear September sky.
The day held no forewarning.
Of the way they were to die. 

Evil dressed in sunshine
On silver wings emplaned
And with the blood of innocents
The face of Islam stained.


The ugly head of hatred
Unmasked in fiery death.
Bodies falling, souls ascending
Born aloft on angel’s breath.

Where for them the promise of today?
Where for them a bright tomorrow?
Vanished like the towers
In smoke and endless sorrow.


Yet from this sacrificial ground
A freedom tower shall arise
Our collective consecration
Of the souls immortalized.
