I Don'T Understand

What was the pilot thinking?
How could he have not seen the giant building in front of him?
I mean it was a sunny day,
Maybe he forgot his sunglasses.

The firemen need to dig faster.
What are they doing?
Don't they know there are people stuck in that mess?
How hard is it to move some pieces of metal to free them?
Just pick them up.

I'm sure it was an accident.
Who would want to hurt that many people?
My daddy works in that building-
He was late to work that day so he could take me to kindergarten.
Why would someone want to hurt my daddy?

I would venture to interpret this as a childs view of the 9 11 atrocity. A well written piece with an undertone, and a happy ending. I've much enjoyed reading your work today. Your easy and exacting style appeals to me. Regards Steve
