Show me the country, where the bombs had to fall
Show me the ruins of the buildings, once so tall
And I’ll show you a young land
With so many reasons why
And there but for fortune go you and I, you and I.
— Phil Ochs (Written 1963)
The image is of Coventry Cathedral in England , bombed and burnt out in November 1940. It is now left as a memorial, and the old spire, which remains standing is the tallest structure in the city. The new struture visible on the left hand side is the replacement cathedral consecrated in 1962 .
