Lying Children in the September 11th Epic Poem

They’ll nod with grins upon their chins
            And claim they understand,
That when the urge begins to surge
            They must restrain their hand.
They’ll say we’re wise with honest eyes
            That gleam like virgin snow,
But with that said they’ll go to bed
            With girls they hardly know.
 
The truth will burn when first we’ve learned
            What stupid things they’ve done.
But once we’ve wept we must accept
            Our daughters and our sons.                   
And as they age we’ll lose our rage
            And give them room to roam;
Content to trust, that they, like us,
            At last will find a home.
 
(Excerpt from Chapter 12)
