The Greatest Idol
“If the light of a thousand suns suddenly arose in the sky, that splendour might be compared to the radiance of the Supreme Spirit” - Bhagavad Gita 11,13.
“Thou shalt have no other Gods before me” -Exodus 20,3
Verily, it is a vast and evil idol
This atomic bomb:
Moloch in all his majestic might
Satan in all his gory glory.
Whoever can contemplate
Its mad mathematics
Learn its lunatic logic
And think to risk its Russian Roulette
Is already lost to love
And bound to burn
In one fire or another.
