The Mother and her Little Boy

Enola Gay,
You should have stayed home yesterday,
Words can't describe,
The feeling and the way you lied.
These games you play,
They are gonna end in tears one day,
Shouldn't ever ended this way...
Is mother proud of little boy today?
This kiss you gave,
Will never fade away...

Enola Gay was the name of the plane that dropped the first atom bomb, the Little Boy. Enola Gay was named after the pilots mother. This imagery of a mother delivering a little boy is as disturbing as the jolly day trips of the staff of Auschwitz.

Second World War was surely the pinnacle of human evil, which is the only evil in my mind.
