The Atom Bomb

Making and use of the a-bomb
An event that spewed waste
A creation that leaves poison
Man knew not the foretaste

As always some good and some bad
Today we have good use
Nuclear medicine does good
Bad if a bomb turned loose

A man can not control himself
Nor the acts of others
Only if all men learn to love
To love man as brothers

The atomic bomb changed history
The course of the war turned
So now we live in a safe world
If only love men yearned

    You are way too modest Sara; I really Think your poetry, is always worth time reading, each of us a part of Gods world, One only knows it all.." we can just write to the best of our desire's and for the right motives; and this you do ( its enough for me ) hope you hit a high spot in Craigs contest..!
