I was in Nagasaki in 1953 And what I saw before me Truly sickened me. I was also in Hiroshima And there was mortified In both places I just stood and stared and cried and cried and cried The devastation I was seeing I could not take it in No matter who had won this war This truly was a sin I felt totally useless It was no good me just crying For even then eight years on People still were dying There were shadows of the dead Burnt into the ground There for evermore But n’er again a sound I think we need to pray Get it understood Its no good destroying this our world And just say its for the good For that day people cheered hip hip hip hip hooray But seeing then as I did It was EVIL that had his way
