Nuclear Buffets - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

Hydrogen weapons and wars!
But humanity is the key to life;
And forever never ends from today.

Before and after the atomic bomb,
We are now deeper into the dark than before;
And with atomic coctails and nuclear buffets!

Oh this energy hungry world! !
You are like the bride-price of the virgins;
And like the atom being split in 1938.

Compassion, kindness, patience, longsuffering and mercy;
You are the first one to do it but,
The parable of the talents took away the righteous fruits of your love.

Of a rock cut out without hands and of your atomic coctails,
And from within and without with your nuclear buffets;
But this is like the last ruling power on earth at this time around.

A family starts with a marriage so you must not beak up your vows,
But life is like informing the people with your calling;
But this project also came out of Manhattan.

To remember the 6th of August 1945 and to see the acts of bombs!
But the dishonest people around us are the Babylonians;
For lamentation and bitter weeping are now on our faces.

Atomic bombs and nuclear buffets,
When will this Babylonian system stop?
For the wars had never put us into better shapes.
