The essence of true martyrdom on the September 11th Epic Poem

The following is an excerpt from chapter 15 of the September 11th Epic Poem. The poem was written between June 2008 and May 2010. It is 2,000 lines long and has 1,499 rhyming pairs.

The war and strife for air and life
            Became a losing race,
For each one maimed who still remained
            Unconscious on his face.
As dark dispersed the rest rehearsed
            The horrors in their minds.
With actions bold they grabbed a hold
            Of victims left behind.
 
Their will unflagged these heroes dragged
            Out strangers twice their size.[16]
By giving aid they each displayed  
            The terrorists’ disguise.
For martyrdom is called by some
            The death these killers crave,
But better men than all of them
            Are those who die to save.
