krishnakumar chandrasekar nair (1964 and doing pretty good.. / Thiruvalla, Kerala)
Never Again, Please..Never Again
Hiroshima happened, Nagasaki happened
No lessons were learnt, no one remembers
How very beautiful crystal clear mornings
Of singing birds, rosy cheeked schoolkids
Grand pa’s on gentle rocking chairs
Grand ma’s sewing woolly sweaters
Were all suddenly so transformed
By the Devils gift of Plutonium
Today we all have our nuclear eggs
Each kept warm by headless chickens
Each worth a hundred Hiroshimas
Fission eggs to fusion eggs
And the doctrine of “omelette” deterrence
But it can happen one fine day
A crazy dictator or a computer mistake
One egg gets airborne in an devious arc
And then you can hear the devils grating laugh
One city will meet the heat of a thousand suns
And the retaliation will be swift and fast
And as once God said, “Let there be light”
He will now say, “Let the fire works begin”!
Galaxies across aliens will watch
The birth of a brand new burning star
Little knowing the intelligence and science that brought
Destruction of a planet and God’s gamble lost
