August 9


August nine came
To the earth
Several times
In countless centuries.

It was came in 1942
Washed away
The hopes, happiness of lot.

Was the Sun come from the west?
Did Moon come with tears?
Were the rats became
Silent in the hole before sun rise,
Flowers stopped blooming,
Did Bees sleep in their hives?

Was the restaurants closed
And purchase of chastity stopped
For the said night.

No, it was absolutely not
Sun and moon came
With cheerful delight
In the right path and time.

Animals and birds of NAGASAKI
Did their deeds as desired
Rats were moving
Form place to place.

Churches and Pagodas
Were open to all
For due meditation.

A dropping of ill thought
Changed all normality
Of time and sense
Nonsense reigned over the land
Where Lord of peace was worshipped
Peace hided her face with shame.
