Remember Ground Zero

To remember, is not to forget.  The place in Hiroshima, ground zero.  The place in Nagasaki, ground zero.  Sometimes referred to as the hypocenter.  The place where the bomb lands.

For Hiroshima, the hypocenter of the attack was Shima Hospital, 800 feet away from the intended aiming point at Aioi Bridge.  Now there are smarter bombs.  Are any more deadly?

unleashed on the world

weapons of mass destruction

will it ever end

Remember Ground Zero

Greek Fire

   
Chemists mystified 

     even to this day

Byzantine recipe conquered at sea

when propelled

     forceful streams of fire

Greek fire could not be quenched by water

     rather it ignited further

when propelled  

     forceful streams of fire

       Fueled by force

         air and water
