Fat Man and Little Boy

Israel's got nothing
on the United States of America.
What we did to Japan,
Israel duplicated in Gaza.

On a smaller scale, of course,
but the weapons the Israelis employed
had the same inhuman effect
right down to the WMDs and the poisons.

We gave the Israelis the DIMEs,
white phosphorus and GBU-39s
which deliver the same shocking injuries
as the 15 killoton atomic bomb
the Enola Gay dropped on Hiroshima.

White phosphorus barbeques human bodies
to charcoal briquettes,
making victims in Gaza
look like all that was left

on August sixth and ninth of 1945.
The pressure waves from DIMEs and GBU-39s

slice off limbs and heads as efficiently, surgically
as the nuclear knives we used to carve up Nagasaki.

Fat Man and Little Boy incinerated 210,000 people,
eighty-five percent of them civilians,
who were later joined by 160,000 more
who we hadn't vaporized immediately.

Seven million Israelis
murdered 1400 plus Palestinians
out of 1.5 million living in Gaza.
132 point five million Americans
executed 370,000 of Japan's 72 million
living in Nagasaki and Hiroshima.

Japan was ready to surrender,
but the U.S. had to teach those Russkies a lesson -
that the evilest son-of-a-b*tch in the world
is the United States of America.

And we used the Japanese people to teach it to them.
The world must never forget and it must never forgive us.
We need to be carefully watched.

We've slaughtered over a million in Iraq and Afghanistan,
where we've outdone ourselves, if not in sheer numbers,
in hypocritical cowardice and stunning, brute barbarism.

We stay far away and safe, pushing video game buttons
to rain hell from unmanned drones and incinerate innocent people.
How courageous do such cruel, callous killers, have to be
and how is this the delivery of freedom and democracy?

We did this.  We're hideous
and Earth has a plan to stop us
before we're stupid enough to do it again,

when either the Israelis, Little Boy,
or the U.S.A., Fat Man,
or the combination decide
to put a nuclear hit on Iran.

Earth is terminally pissed off
with our genocidal character traits.
She's mixing a toxic cocktail.
They call it Frozen Clathrates.

She's had it up to here
with our juvenile pissing contests,
and our impressing ourselves
with oppression and conquest.
