Never Forget

How well I remember

when Saddam Hussein

leading the whole Iraqi Army

(the third largest in the world)

attacked Manhattan

in amphibious vehicles.

It was December 7

the carriers came in under fog

strafing the Bowery first

murdering homeless civilians.

The beachhead was Battery Park

they doused the Twin Towers

with kerosene and set it aflame

and Saddam with a gleeful smile

eating Eli's cheesecake

all of it as if yesterday....
