Atomic Poem

Atomic Poem

“Let the mercuric
Atoms that cripple drip
Into the terrible well”
—Sylvia Plath
“Nick and the Candlestick”

Every woman—adores a Fascist
Every man woman—and child
We all adore—Big Daddy
Isn’t that—what they say?

Spontaneous hate—much better
Than the usual—faked love
How the—peanut-crunching crowd
Loves the—Big Black Boot?

Big is better—Size counts!!!
Blow up—Hiroshima, baby!!!
Blow up—Nagasaki too!!!
We’re all—Size Queens, dear
