Land of My Fathers Poetry Club

Nagasaki and Hiroshima

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
