Our government has made some very bad choices for sure. This is well written and to the point. May humans never be used as guinea pigs again. It is amazing how you took such unrelated words and came up with a piece so powerful.

    dejohnsrid, I guess you are an Aussie? Depending on your age group, you may not have heard of Maralinga? I wanted to put this info out there, our people are still waiting for compensation. Cheers, Kay.

What people will do to each other sometimes really sucks as in this case. Having seen Hiroshima results they lied to get what they wanted, but those who did the bidding also got what they wanted at the time. It's written well, but I see no solution.

    Fiesty, Whilst man has access to explosives - he will use them. The Brits used 12 kilotonnes of plutonium just to see what it would do? Our tribal people are still waiting, still dying from radiation. Thanks for reading. Bless you, Kay

You covered the words with great skill. It is hard to make all the words fit into a perfect poem. The subject is one I hope the world will not repeat.

Your beautifully crafted poetry is a stark reminder of the idiocy of above-ground atomic bomb blasts. It's an enigma to me why the Australian government of the day allowed these fearsome tests on Australian soil? You are helping to make this disgraceful episode better known. Ron

    Hello Ron, A lot of atomic bomb testing was done in secret; Britain ruled the waves, Australians just rowed the boat. Thanks for reading. Cheers, Kay.

This work has reached the exceptional level
Your arthor notes are superb and you have a good flow with your poem-you have good rhythm and rhyme all through your poem and you are descriptive-not only did you meet the guidlines but in doing so delivered a powerful message about live and refer to losing life as a foreclosure--well done and Best Wishes in the contest.
