down

down

down

down

comes an object from the sky

all looking with fixed eyes

upon this thing too far too high

closer

closer

closer

it comes

with dreadful speediness as it screams

coming to shatter everyone's dreams



Like ants escaping from their prey

the people run as if to say

"Life is over and so are our days"

Boom

Crash

Sizzle

Smash

lands this nightmare with its death

to kill the ants with its breath



This day is remembered far and wide

of Hiroshima's many lost lives
