Pastor Duke’s 9/11 Poem

Twas not day nor was it light

When she arose from the night

Would not be much more than an hour

That she would be at work in the tower

She got on her knees to pray as she knelt on the floor

Not just a sentence but a whole lot more

She prayed for her kids, her nation and kin

Not knowing that day of those horrible men

Who despised the life of others and their own

Thinking in their minds to their god they’d be known

So after her coffee and a roll

She left the house for the stroll

Up the lane and down the street

Smiling to all that she did meet

Twas not long fore she entered the door

Took the Elevator to the 73rd floor

Greeting co-workers as she took her seat

Picked up some fallen papers at her feet

Looking out the window suddenly she cried alas

As the plane came crashing through the glass

Now Satan their god was ever so pleased and laughed and shouted in glee

For that morning his followers had bowed to him on their knee

Twas Tuesday Sept 11th of that horrible day

When children in school were not allowed to pray

The pledge of allegiance was all they could speak

Before sitting at their desks with a squeak

But school was not out on that solemn day

When rules were broken as they sobbed and did pray

In school that day they prayed for those that did die

They cried to the God that was way up in the sky

Jesus our God looked down from above

Heard the cry of the people that he did love

He reached down his hands to the WTC

And took his children of that you can see

Many a person will never be found

Among the rubble that fell to the ground

Some there were not known and of little fame

But our Jesus knew them all by their Name

His promise is still true

For one day out of the blue

Jesus will come and above we will go

And we will be able to tell the world I told you so
