The sunken USS Arizona where 1177 men tragically died and now lay to rest underwater. This park is an incredibly moving memorial and taught me so much about this segment of WWII.
War is hell.
One Sunday morning after a very big night
Planes flying above with no fear in sight
Expecting their fighter jets to come home today
There was no way war would begin for the Americans today in any way
With warning that their jets were coming home that morning
The Japanese jets with bombs came in storming
Dropping bombs on Pearl Harbour
Where they were not starboard
Laid asleep in their beds
Little did they know moment later, 1000's dead
Here in the memorable above the ship where the rest remain
Hawaii after this day (7th December 2017, 1941) would never be the same
