September 11 Poem: Here comes the cavalry

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.

Their sirens blared to tell the scared
            That help was getting through.
They came in force to face the worst; 
            Aware what they must do.      
With boots well-shined, their rigs on time,
            They bounced along the route;
And rushed to quell the burning hell,
            While most were rushing out.
No time to lose their engines cruised   
            Down busy boulevards.
Past stores, and malls, and public halls,
            And sometimes urban yards.   
The quickest path to face the wrath
            Was just the path they took.
They made a race to reach the place
            The tower burned and shook.
