Four Teenage Hands Had Armed The Bomb

Four teenage hands had armed the bomb

As the tea time train swayed and swung along

Three of them were roasted off prematurely

Before the other hung disfigured in front of a jury


Thirty four years later, and completely unrelated

My hot head lay burnt out and devastated

This throat roared and raged without saliva

Yet, now it has cooled. I must be a survivor
