DÉJÀ VU?

General Musharif has to maintain a firm control hand
To safeguard his 50 x atomic warheads o’er in Pakistan
El Qaeda suicide bombers with their own Taliban
Will capture the A bombs, for sure, if they can!

Suiciders blow up politicians, young students are dead
There’s a wide swath of terror where school children bled
Israel and the US they both try to remain calm
As Iran rapidly continues to acquire its A Bomb

There is violence and corruption all across the Mid East
The world’s close to destruction by the Atomic Bomb Beast!
We were close in the 60’s – Khrushchev banged his shoe
He had missiles in Cuba with Atomic Bomb warheads too!

I saw a Raeside cartoon in the Times which hit home so true!
An old soldier, on Remembrance Day, got a feeling of Déjà vu!
He was watching the news on the CNN Channel T.V.
And he ponders how long can the free world stay free?

Author’s Note: This writer was in Europe during the building of the Berlin Wall and during the Cuban Crisis – our life expectancy on the ground at that time (after bug-outs to the East German Border) was less than 24 Hours if we started to exchange armed nuclear warheads on SSM honest johns. The earth is more fragile today and mass nuclear winter would destroy crops and destroy the entire world’s food supply. Food for thought! It’s time to put a stop to the madness.
