The Lyrics

For some background information, check out the Wikipedia article "List of Military Nuclear Accidents"
"Broken Arrow" - Why don't we drop the pretenses
The Department of Defense has hidden truth til now.
Hardened warheads (or just training simulation),
And the trigger didn't detonate the payload somehow.

We're talking Cold War '58, and a farm near Florence in our rural state.
Air pocket, training crew, bomber overhead.
They lost control of a big device
A nuclear explosion wouldn't be nice.
Had it triggered, folks in Florence'd all be dead.

"Broken Arrow" - from the heavens bomb tumbled.
When A-bombs are fumbled, there's no time for alarm.
Flattened farmhouse, and left a 30-foot crater, but
No plutonium detonator, so 'no serious harm'.

Just months before, off the Georgia shore, two Air Force planes collided;
Never found, an H-bomb ditched into the sea.
Plutonium capsule'd been removed (official account's not yet disproved)
Near Tybee Island, the device rests quietly.

"Broken Arrows" - there are dozens of examples.
The evidence is ample, we should close off this gate.
World leaders, we're needing
Diplomatic moderation.
Let's halt reckless provocation, reckless provocation,
Let's stop arms proliferation before it's too late.
Other silly songs and satire can be found at ... SILLY SONGS AND SATIRE.

Nice-555! Btw, did you know that the Kremlin has a saying about lost nuclear weapons? A weapon lost is said to be engulfed by "Belkovik Fog." Apparently, Belkovik was a Soviet era animator who had a cartoon wolf that can generate fog out of it's mouth to disappear. Sometimes deliberately, sometimes accidentally! Where the wolf ends up is anyone's guess.

TY Rob for your interest, and for your insight re 'Belkovik fog'. I am commenting as Dr GC dec's trqnslator in the present world. I am surprised by your 5s, as your ratings often seem to be determined by ideology rather than by writing skill, originality or whatever.. So, are you in agreement that we "should close off this gate"?

I can think of at least 5 bombs (real and theoretical) that are more powerful and destructive than a High-MT yield H-bomb! Second, I support LNW (Limited Nuclear War) using tactical nukes or in layman's terms " battlefield" nukes under 1 MT. I also believe some nation will use nukes in the near future. If not us, then Israel is a good candidate, especially if Iran and Hezbollah in Lebanon actually fire the nearly 500,000 rockets stockpiled to attack Israel. One armed with any gas will get a nuclear response. Then there's China and Russia against US naval carrier firepower. This isn't WW2 anymore. No sub or air attacks against the floating airfields. One nuke kills the entire carrier task force, all planes, helos, defensive and offensive armaments, and all personnel in a flash. The carrier alone carries 5000-6000, not counting the support ships. The accompanying sub will survive though to fire a nuclear response. We live in the most dangerous time in history, so facing reality should be sobering.
