11.02 and silence reigned

                           Unaware of future pain

                          The bomb dropped fast

                           A shadow cast

                          Children burned stomachs churned

                           The atom bomb had just returned

                          World war amended in a moment

                          An act of Japanese atonement

                          They shatter Nagasaki dreams

                          Mushroom clouds obscure sunbeams

                          Will we ever learn from history deeds

                          And give our children the peace it needs
