SHADOWS ON THE WALL!!!

Little Boy – so small and yet so deadly
Exploding into a beautiful bell of sunlight
Clouds boiling up, mushrooming into a
Cloak of destruction.
Dissolving flesh, leaving only the shadows
Of history imprinted on the walls.


They turned back to look but
All they did was taste
The lead of atomic fission
Radiation, generated by
Gamma ray and ray neutrons while in flight
Causing genetic malformation 

Fat Man - a hollow pumpkin-like shell
Surrounded by explosions
Sides permitted it to be
Armed while in flight
Cloak of destruction
Covered two square miles.
The only thing that could survive
The deadly bombs was 
The cockroach.
