Japan, Oh Japan!
A rehearsal of Armageddon
A chilling sight
A rage of nature
Devouring a piece of man
And his treasured proceeds
From constant sweat and toil
Like a piece of delicious cake
Consumed by a starving lioness
Saddled with the hunger
Of her languishing cubs
But chance upon a lonely lamb
Forsaken by a hired shepherd
At a dry wilderness
Suffering from acute malaria fever
The land shivers, feeling very cold
Agape as though utterly astounded
But famished it really is
And laps up every dropp of innocent blood
As if its life entirely depends thereon
The ocean, boiling over
Overthrows its boundary
And marches aggressively
In sweeping anger
On the course of dear life
And awestruck nuclear plants
Incapacitated and gasping
Explode and contaminate
Land, ocean and air
Reducing man to a fugitive
Like a rabbit smoked out of its warren
Japan, oh Japan!
My heart bleeds for you
Your pain is the pain of all
For man is enslaved by nature.
