    The Oklahoma City bombing occurred at 9:02 AM, April 19, 1995. The Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, United States Federal Government complex was the target.

    Timothy McVeigh was convicted and sentenced to death for the bombing. He was executed by lethal injection at a U.S. penitentiary in Terre Haute, Indiana, on June 11, 2001. An accomplice, Terry Nichols, was sentenced to life in prison after being convicted of manslaughter in a federal court trial.

    On a warm peaceful April morn,
       It came without warn,
       The ultimate hate storm.
    To a random destination,
       Came vicious devastation,
       Hate's evil manifestation.
    An hour after eight,
       One fed from the plate of hate,
       Opened Hell's gate, upon an innocent State.
    In a resounding roar,
       Dark clouds would soar,
       Leaving ruin and gore.
    Hearts of innocence torn,
       From recently born,
       The yet to be born.
    There hate fed,
       Where babies bled,
       Streets of red.
    Why he went so far astray,
       This McVeigh didn't say,
       Wouldn't say, couldn't say.
    Through long preparation,
       No doubts or hesitation,
       No remorse or reservation.
    How he could desecrate,
       With such unjust fate,
       To display this marquee of hate.
    That day the devil had his will,
       His trumpets of hell pierced the still,
       His manifest of hate he came to reveal.
