Rush Hour in the September 11th Epic Poem

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.

On crowded streets the yellow fleets
            Were fighting for their turns.
And homeless folks cast scornful jokes
            At bleary-eyed interns.
The drivers cussed while taxis bussed
            Their loads of human freight,
As endless plights of crimson lights
            Were forcing them to wait.    
But as they stood the neighborhood
            Was startled by a sound,
That rattled glass and spooked a mass
            Of pigeons on the ground.
While drivers swerved their eyes observed
            The towers on the mall:
For as they steered a jet appeared
            And rammed into the wall.
