Hiroshima At Peace

This once derelict city
is twice as big as it was

10 TIMES AS RICH.

***

In the Park of Remembrance
crowds gather.
Pictures of the dead
surround them
- burnt buildings
& massed graves.

***

(August 6th 1945 .
Too far back to remember? )

children are running singing & playing
- with their former world
bitter with hatred
& finally buried –

LOST
vanished forever!

Note

A Peace Museum now marks the epicentre of the atomic explosion.

In this modern building grotesque pictures  remind visitors of the misery & extent of the destruction & the instant disintegration of almost the whole of the city & its inhabitants.

[It has been proposed that Japan should soon develop its own nuclear weapons.]
