Hiroshima - 50 Years

by Mordechai Vanunu

Hiroshima   Hiroshima
My beloved Hiroshima
Your sons   daughters   elders   wives
Blew radiated with an Atomic Bomb
A radioactive cloud consumed   rubbed out Hiroshima

Hiroshima    Hiroshima
For a live nuclear test sentenced you
a nuclear laboratory of children   women    trees   animals
in and under nuclear mushroom   live burning
burned   flattened to ground    radioactive ash - Hiroshima

Hiroshima   Hiroshima
Nuclear weapons gamblers win against you
a U.S. revenge for Pearl Harbor
Hiro - shima    Japan heroism is the target
wipe out rain              Hiro - Hero - shima - Truman

Hiroshima    Hero - shima
Japan and U.S. betrayed you    Hero    Hiroshima
silence       forget Hiroshima Atomic tragedy
Japan sacrifices your holocaust on the Yen altar
Hollywood doesn't know you - you are not a Jewish Holocaust

Hiroshima    Hiroshima
Anti-nuclear weapons campaigners adopting your
orphans. Heritage of Hiroshima our heroes
carry    preach the memory message of Hiroshima
to the future ages to end nuclear gamblers.
Beginning and end of nuclear weapons. Hiroshima.   Hero.
Hiroshima.   Hero.   Hero.   Hero.
