The Launch Codes

The storm clouds of chaos

Grow ever stronger

Ever darker

 

Decency is an outlier

Restraint, compassion

Distant ideals

 

I used to laugh when they talked about the end of the world

Armageddon in our lifetime – yeah right

Yet this is no biblical instance

You may as well burn it

Some that claim to preach it, seem not to read it

Or maybe the words in theirs are different to the words in mine?

 

Is the world going to end?

Has humanity completely lost the plot?

Will our children have to learn how to survive a nuclear winter?

 

I know fear today like never before

Not of a personal attack

But a genuine fear

That the end is near

If the wrong person gets

The launch codes
