When Death Came From the Sky

 Lest we forget what bin Laden was, and thankfully incapable of EVER being again! God Bless America, and her defenders. Go Navy!

When Death Came From The Sky

 The morning sparkled, like a gem,

the air was warm and dry,

it was a nearly, perfect day,

when death, came from the sky.

 

On the eleventh, of September,

in the year, two thousand-one,

America, watched in horror,

as they witnessed, terror come.

 

With not a thought, of life’s import,

for themselves, or innocents to die,

and the madmen smiled, with great delight,

when death, came from the sky.

 

Martyrs, for some heinous cause,

they looked beyond, this earth,

what kind of god, would welcome them,

surely, not a god of worth.

 

They will not, enter heaven,

no virgins, will they spy,

they’ll dwell long, in satan’s, realm,

for when death, came from the sky!
