To all the Heroes

Sharp, flying objects

Inject their poison

Red Flames and black smoke

Choke the life

Out of the many

Who never saw

It coming


Steel melting,

glass shattering

Screams fighting

for survival

Waiting their turn

 to be rescued


Red hats

And blue uniforms

Race to save

Plain clothes individuals

Doing the right thing

Because you just do

Four legged canines

Disregarding injury

Using a keen sense of smell

Find the souls, living and dead

Then, as now, the heroes

Were in the building and outside

They sacrificed their lives for us

The ultimate price
