Trouble in the Rubble
Well, the story in the paper ‘bout the rescue dogs at the 9/11 tragedy
Said the dogs were’nt suffering like the humans were from diggin’ in the dangerous debris
Asbestos in the air! Toxic powder everywhere! All around the WTC!
And though the EPA said it was all ok. It was later proved not to be!
There was trouble in the rubble of the WTC! Danger that they could not see!
Asbestos in the air! Toxic powder everywhere! And a strange “white-hot debris”!
There was trouble in the rubble of the WTC! Pools of molten steel burned brilliantly!
And in the news we learned that the doggies’ feet were burned by a strange “white-hot debris”!
Now, many months have passed since the data’s was amassed to document disturbingly!
That many lung and brain killing ailments came, compounding the initial tragedy
While humans worked for months at the crime scene site. The dogs were mostly there for days
But all of them dug in the deadly dust, and breathed in the toxic haze!
The workers searched the “Ground Zero” ruins in vain, responding unselfishly
For at first they found a few, then for months found no one new in the depths of the WTC
And the workers didn’t know in the rubble down below…the truth was burning secretly!
There was no one left alive cause no one could survive that strange “white-hot debris!
Now, many good firemen and rescue workers too are dead and gone before their time
And many unanswered questions challenge you about this terrible crime
But one of those burning questions ought to be answered rather easily
It’s the one that explains scientifically that strange “white-hot debris”!
Now, someone sent the firemen up the Towers that day to put the jet fuel fires out!
And someone sent the rescue and removal workers in… Of that there is no doubt!
And jet fuel isn’t known to melt steel beams away… It hasn’t got a history!
But demolition charges make vacuums that way… And that’s no mystery!

This song was written after reading the Associated Press article on the 9/11 rescue dogs by Amy Westfeldt. It was run in the Washington Post on Oct 20, 2006. I read it in the Wilmington DE News Journal of Oct. 21, 2006. It reveals a curious fact that many of the rescue dogs of 9/11 had their burned by “white-hot debris”. The reporter did not question or explain how this came to be. While this story is consistent with other reports of pools of molten steel still being “white-hot” many weeks after the free-fall collapse of the World Trade Center towers, it is not consistent with the official story that the towers fell into rubble as a result of jet fuel fires. This news story inspired this song.
