"Evening of the Rising Sun"

"The sun went down and the few left, - saw

What no one should ever see,

Where had they gone, all the young men,

Some only boys,

Where was everyone on this early December

Night?

Why are their graves wet and dark?

Oh God please I want to go home"...

the attack on Pearl Harbor, December 1941
