Random Poem:

To Nagasaki,
Inuki

I think I would have liked
 1
to meet your children.
 2
I am certain
 3
that they would have
 4
attained your knack
 5
for polishing silverware
 6
and knitting.
 7
 
 
on sundays,
 8
they could sing choral hymns
 9
and on fridays, they would
 10
scutter up the stairs
 11
from school
 12
eagerly greeting the weekend.
 13
 
 
it is too bad
 14
they were blown to pieces -
 15
 
 
I told you not to go
 16
to Nagasaki
 17
