They turned wheels and pushed carts,
As the hearts of man pooled and fought a universal struggle,
They brought sharp tools, bright ideas and white paper
And shifted the tide in their favour,
They broke the atom
That held together inanimate boundaries and physical obstacles,
A reduction in mass
That reaped destruction of cells and molecules,
And split the very manner of matter
Of which a vengeful god lived in,
The officers of war tarnished the reputation of man,
Harnessing the power that not even philosophers dreamed,
The first breath, from the cradle of discovery where it would begin,
To the same man who screamed: “I am become death,”
Who lowered our heads down in shame
And became sombre in light of our everlasting sin.
