The Bomb That Fell on America, by Herman Hagedorn, 1882-1964
The bomb that fell on Hiroshima fell
On America, too.
It fell on no city, no munitions plants, no docks.
It erased no church, vaporized no public
Buildings, reduced no man to his
But it fell, it fell.
It burst. It shook the land.
God have mercy on our children.
God have mercy on America.
