A Monster Named Little Boy Poem by Rajnish Manga

A Monster Named Little Boy

Rating: 4.6


Right in the middle of bulging war zone
A monster was baptised as ‘Little Boy'
Weighing 9700 Pound or 5 tons apprx.
Was 10 feet tall with 28 inches diameter
Was flown to the land of the rising sun
To create worst ever nightmare of 20th century
When it was dropped over the town of Hiroshima
(The largest town on Honshi Island in Japan)
It caused the first ever Atom Bomb massacre
Killing 80000 men, women and children and
Destroying everything within 4 sq miles instantly
Thousands suffered the ill effects of radiation.
On the occasion of 73rd anniversary of bombing
This humble tribute is penned on 6th Aug.2018
When we pay our homage to those who died
And also salute the brave hearts of Japan
Who re-built Japan with courage and resilience.
