Suicide in the sky

 

(Respectfully dedicated to the victims of

 hijackers in New York City, Sept. 11, 2001)

 

 

Suddenly the airplanes jump into the twin towers.

They’re exploded. A huge plume of smoke… No power…

The sky-scrapers are made by the forged steel;

Oh my God! It’s really hot! How do they feel?

 

Who are you—my crazy young men?

Why do you want to kill our dear friends?

You are too young! You must save your lives!

Why do you want to commit suicide?

 

The killers did prepare for their threats;

Nobody knows that action in their heads.

How many people were burned in that site?

Oh my God! What’s the first terrible suicide!

 

Hijackers are not only our real enemy;

But they are Satans of the whole country.
