Atom Bomb – Written Saturday 29th October 1994 (Aged 19)

Atom Bomb

social stance
dropping an atom bomb
look at the sky
then we are all gone
and the sun in the sky
no longer shone
and the earth will die
atom bomb our world
watch it die
it has grown cold
do not cry,
you are still young
far from being old
i just want to be with you
why won’t people understand
we are no fantasy
we are solid fact

James Garratt – Saturday 29th October 1994
