Fat man

Sirens, "go to the shelters!"

Flash, "What happened?"

"Is this the end?"


Gasp, "MOM!"

A boy sees his mother

Wait, is that his mother?

There's burned flesh everywhere he can't tell

Suddenly a deafening yell!


Fat Man

Why have you done this?

Anger towards men we do not know?

Today you changed into the Terrorist

What you said you'd destroy

Destruction only came to the innocence of the boy


Fat Man

The dust has settled

But the darkness is now within

Forever because of you

And you don't have a clue

Fat Man
