Security Breaches at USA Nuclear Missile Base

Security Breaches at USA Nuclear Missile Base

By Elton Camp   

In Montana, Malmstrom Air Force base
To keep Minuteman missiles is the place

Each is tipped with a nuclear warhead
That can cause many folks to be dead

Since they can be instantly fired
Each is in a silo and a guard hired

Yet, a relentless invader’s got inside
Digging a tunnel he has been spied

Under silo’s protective fences he will go 
Damages roads, fences, cables we know

Barriers to tunnels have been erected
However, they didn’t work as expected

The invaders continued to come on in
There seemed no way security could win

Laboratory tests have shown a new way
It will undergo tests at the base any day

Its success still remains to be seen
But security guards are feeling keen

Perhaps they will soon be sure 
That the missiles are secure

These ground squirrels can’t dig
When the new barriers they rig

Thus the rodents no longer can
Come near to the Minuteman
