WordPress – #Daily Prompt – Betrayed

Looking at essence of the cold winter ever

Of a nuclear disaster that will recover –never

It’s hard to see how Chernobyl might else be portrayed

But to see it in the stark terms of children betrayed

The isotopes released span somewhat hemispheric

So the tests have proven of what is now atmospheric

It’s hard to keep my simple minded composure

When I think on the thyroid cancer caused by this exposure

Since 1986 up to 2.2 children per million under fifteen will suffer

Worldwide because there is no such thing a true sort of buffer

It the most wicked of treasonous conundrums

That even life nourishing milk has become poison for some

Out there in this now nuclear zone of mass alienation

This sad accident was the betrayal of a people and their nation
