Bombshell Reprise

There's a hollowed out house
From a bombshell drop.
Shadows flashburnt to the walls
Sparse shelter offered atop.

A city left in vacant ruin
From a megaton blast.
A shockwave to swallow it up
Lives stolen away so fast.

A crater remains to see,
Residue still lingers in air
Along a faltering sense of safety
How could this have been fair?

A neighbor now stranger
Scavenge what can be found
All thoughts revolve in madness
This is no longer 'safe and sound'.

The decision to stop a country
So consequence falls here.
Leaving a city in aftershock and dust
For the whole world to fear.
