Don't cry for us America
by JS Schilling

We are glad we are here now.

We are grateful to the man
who made this possible.

To be in sweet heaven as we are now,
this was the goal of our bitter lives.

Our hats off to Mr. bin Laden
you made our day on 9/11.

For we are with God now
and how much grander it is,
than it was.

Cry not America-
    -for us-
but give your thanks to the one
who made our hopes,
a reality then.
