Americans are, at once, the world's most terrible people and its biggest babies.


9/11

Twenty years ago today, a most amazing thing
Occurred. Psycho Sammy sat inside his dining
Room. He'd gotten dressed and eaten, but he
Hadn't yet begun his rounds, his stops throughout
The neighborhood to threaten those he didn't like,
To steal whatever caught his eye, and thrash or
Murder anyone who thought they should stand up
To him. Pleased with both the lovely weather
And the thought of cowing everyone with his
Amazing strength (which was, in fact, not quite
So great as it had been when he was young),
He was finishing his coffee when some men
Burst through his door and punched him hard.
They broke his nose and left. Throughout these years,
Poor Sammy's stayed inside and blubbered on this day.
How could those men be so mean? For twenty years,
His neighbors have applauded that intrepid crew,
Which treated Psycho Sammy to a tiny measure
Of the pain that he had brought to them.

How true, the bully cannot take the punishment.
Very hard hitting. Bravo.
