The quintessential, ambush predators

are they

who camouflaged in code names

like Little Boy* or Fat Man**

thwapped out their tongues

of hatred and pride

to ambush their prey…..

Who are their prey?

Ask those specters

who lived in the 1940’s

in the area of Hiroshima

or Nagasaki….

*Atom Bomb for Hiroshima

**Atom Bomb for Nagasaki

  1. Ouch! In few words, indict a generation of “leaders”! Working in secret as well as camouflage, they must have known humans would object. Amazing poetry!

  2. A sad and powerful write Sumana.
    We never seem to learn by history and weaponry appears to indicate an awful kind of a nations power.
    Anna :o]

  3. The horror of those atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki was the deliberate killing of thousands of innocent people to teach the military and government a lesson in order to shorten the prolonged battle. In war nobody wins.

Thank You :)
