Some ghosts never leave…
You have poisoned your oceans and polluted your minds
you have feasted on blood and gore,
made diabolical machines from monstrous dreams,
and turned your brother to war
With one push of a button,
you’ll be permanently shut-in,
a radioactive room for a tomb
And yet you laugh,
while the atom bomb recedes
But never disappears
locked inside yourself
insulated from your fears
from the ghosts
The laughing…is over
the magical mystery tour is winding down
the soft parade is nothing but a whisper
and Hiroshima’s and Nagasaki’s ghosts
have come to take their place among the living . . .
