on reading "The Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki"
by The Manhattan Engineer District

Tonight the report that I read
Told of midnight funeral pyres
In valleys that swallowed the dead
Torched around Misasa Bridge.

I read about intentions
And blast effect dimensions
Held in check by the ring of a ridge -
And the scorched on ...

Misasa Bridge.
Once crossed there's no turning back.
Misasa Bridge.
Witness to the first attack
Of the new age.
Burned like letters on the page.
Misasa Bridge.

I think the universe time traveled
In three mad years and eight sad months,
As fearless armies just unraveled
Before a few glass wounded monks.

Misasa Bridge.
Once crossed there's no turning back.
Misasa Bridge.
Witness to the first attack
Of the new age.
Burned like letters on the page.
Misasa Bridge.

The Arizona sailors who drown below
Died like men a thousand years ago.
But soon that host of planes shrank down to one -
And death took on the face of an angry sun.

What have we done?

Who could imagine the change?
Kates gave way to flash range.
Bookend unheeded alarms
Sparked such intended harm.
Early on two sleepy mornings
Hell shattered lives without warning.
Eons of sacrilege
Led to ...

Misasa Bridge.
Once crossed there's no turning back.
Misasa Bridge.
Witness to the first attack
Of the new age.
Burned like letters on the page.
Misasa Bridge.
Misasa Bridge.
Misasa Bridge.
