News flash: 9/10/01 is gone forever

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

The experts say that dreadful day
            Is better left behind.
They have not found a single ground
            To keep it on the mind.
It’s not correct to introspect
            The things you thought and did,
And most of all there is no call,
            To tell them to your kid.
But in our hearts our bolder parts
            Are telling us they’re wrong;
That those who died should live in pride,
            Enshrined in endless song.
They try to keep our souls asleep
            Inside a sterile fence,
But in the end we can’t pretend
            It’s still September Tenth.
