Like Summer Rain
Like Summer Rain

It dropped like summer rain

This toxic soup

It invaded skin and vein

This gloop.

Like snow flakes it floated down

This fallout

Covering the town

And there about.

We of Hiroshima weep

This ash brings death within its wake

Poison in our blood did creep

The pilot radioed to home "Piece of cake”.

I know the argment was that it would cost many more Japanese and Allied lives if we had invaded the mainland. That was the argument...Whether that was true or not, there IS no excuse for using nuclear weapons from Hell on innocent men, women and children. I suspect the overriding reason we dropped those bombs is because after all the money and time spent developing the H Bomb, we couldn't bare not to make our splash.

 

After the war, Eisenhower shared nuclear technology with countries around the world, in some insane dream of his that the information would be used to give the world cheap power. He's the one responsible for the global threat of total destruction we all live under now.

Todd Rundgren once did a song called "Hiroshima". The last verse was "Dont you ever forget....don't you ever f--kin' forget!" Yeah. Well done, sir.

Devastating picture of needless war.  Capped by irony.  An exceptional poem.  --David
