Favorite Quote:
"So, to their own unutterable torment, they go about among their fellow-creatures, looking pure as new-fallen snow; while their hearts are all speckled and spotted with the iniquity of which they cannot rid themselves." -Nathaniel Hawthorne

A raging fire,
A-Bomb dropped
To save people’s lives over the years.
But did it really
Ease anyone’s fears?

A haunting cry,
A gasp for air
Burns more ghastly than anyone can bear.

Destruction, a terrible power.
A blinding light,
Hiroshima and Nagasaki dropped tonight.

People cry and run in fear,
But the Emperor will not give up nor appear.
A disregard for his people,
Simply living by Bushido.

The author's comments:
This is in reference to the tragedy of the A-Bombs being dropped on Japan and how terrible the consequences of war can be.
