Rosa de Hiroshima – Secos e Molhados Live on Maracanazinho – 1974

A short poem describing the sadness of war

Think of the children, mute, telepathic
Think of the girls, blind, confused
Think of the women, ripped altered
Think of the wounds, like warm roses
But oh don’t forget the rose, the rose
From the Hiroshima rose, the hereditary rose
The radioactive rose, stupid and invalid
The rose with cirrhosis

The atomic anti-rose
No color, no perfume, no rose, nothing

Sung by Ney Mato Grosso
