Hiroshima

 

Doom

fell upon

Earth

 

One beautiful

day

 

As

they smiled

 

The crew

of Enola Gay
 
*
 

No tears

were shed

 

Dead

fell upon

dead
 

O Day

Of Infamy

 

O Night

Of Dread
 
*

 

Quick

children

 

Get

under

the bed

 

Fiery

contagion

 

Burgeons

ahead
 

*
 

‘Twas

The Beginning

 

They’d

tested

their toy

 

Cheerily

called it

 

Their

own

‘Little Boy’
 
*

 

“Twas a

splitting

Of Spirit

 

Thence

it began
 

Grim

Anathema
 

Of The Fall

Of (hu)Man
