Hiroshima

proud strike, end the war, save lives

dastardly deed, must surrender, how our people die

Done to finish the fighting,

Received by death and disease.

confession of surrender

shattered buildings, lives, and hopes

Sad, but necessary

Tragic, oh, why, why, why

Never again, too much devastation and political strife

Please, no, our people cannot suffer this once more



May the menacing mushroom cloud not rise over a city once more.

May that fateful day never be repeated,

The deaths of thousands never be lost in one single day and one single second.
