Keeping Ignorance Alive

standing there
tall and proud
two symbols of
our dominance
two symbols of
our wealth
on a bright, warm sunny
Tuesday morn
they came crashing
tumbling down
amid fire and smoke
rubble and death
someone somewhere
smiles gleefully
others join
in terror, agree
for their cause
bloodshed rules
not words or reason
they want to kill
keeping alive
and foolish, wasteful
