Peace
Ideal bound
by treaties
constructed
from dreams
or imposed or kept
or created
in a Big Bang
of nuclear energies
destructing
beyond imagination

destruction of Hiroshima
and Nagasaki became
the narrative of
heroes enemies victims
president emperor
and humanity

let us not forget
in times of peace
to keep peace in time.
