Nuclear weapons and the world
With a Nuclear bomb
anyone can blow a country out of the world.
the world doesn’t know what to do
so we will see a proliferation a powerful nukes.
With a bomb like that, in the wrong pair of hands
human destruction is certain as death.
After the first shot is fired,
no matter who started
no matter who is to blame
half of us will end in heaven
the other half in hell.
We all will remember what once
the war after this
will be among a few of us,
and we will end battling with sticks and rocks.
Jorge Castillo, July 2015
