comes an object from the sky
all looking with fixed eyes
upon this thing too far too high
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"
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
