Remembering Oklahoma

The year was 1995 and

I remember seeing news footage live

as the Oklahoma Murrah building

was destroyed as domestic terror

hit heartland America

in such a devastating way

168 people died that day

because of the derangement

of Timothy McVeigh

and America was forever changed

Indelible Impressions

1977, a plane was going down, 

Headed like a wrecking ball

for the Mississippi ground

Several musicians in their prime 

Doing everything they could to get out of it alive

I wasn’t even born yet,

but I’ve heard about it enough times

Things like that tend to haunt the mind,

I found it absolutely terrifying

It is one of the prime reasons for my own fear of flying
