The Day

The Day

A Poem by Imagedden
"

An amatuer's reflective ponderings written on the anniversary of 9/11.

"

It was on the day of September Eleven

 

That humans sought solace from heaven

 

The day that spawned the nadir of menace

 

 

The day of the devolution of evolution

 

The day that David used planes instead of a sling-shot

 

To give the Capitalist Goliath a perpetual forget-me-not

 

 

The day a convenient means of transport

 

spread subliminal discomfort across the global cohort

 

Perceptively held as such a faithful servant

 

Transmorphed in a nano-second to that of a catastrophic tyrant

 

 

The day which should have embedded a cultural scar

 

Yet achieved something else quite bizarre

 

This day illuminated the inability to decry the human spirit

 

Irrespective of how many times you bombard it

 

 

But most of all, it should have been the day of summation

 

In that dehumanisation is not a resolution to any solution

The day of the devolution of evolution
The day that David used planes instead of a sling-shot
To give the Capitalist Goliath a perpetual forget-me-not


I thought this was a great way to describe the tragic events that
took place on "The Day" I'm so glad I got the chance to read it.
I am not trying to self promote on your review, because you deserve
many kudos for the piece of work here...but thought you might want
to look at what I wrote for the 5 year anniversary of "The Day"...it is
called "Milestone of an American Tragedy"

Your poem brought back the feelings that I had on that day as I watched those planes slam into the WTC towers.
It was amazing

Well done
