9/11 poem: Initial fears

The Following is an excerpt from chapter 2 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.

With fearful awe at what they saw
            The watchers swore and raved.
Their focus now became on how
            Survivors could be saved.
As musings grew on what to do
            They heard a welcome noise:
The crimson fleets were flooding streets     
            With hook and ladder boys.
