Nuclear Armageddon Or Our Gravest Fear

The world is melting,
It's crust eroding,
for the nuclear Armageddon is coming close.

There was sheer warning,
there was mass jeering,
yet the Nuclear epidemic continued to condone.

To build ticking time bombs in the snow;
to build upon unstable foundation,
transporting radium and plutonium to the flow.

Yet now as the world is itching to explode,
we still hear the moan,
...and the excuses made before.

Get your plutonium out my door!

But no more, 
fore the people have burst their core.

Now the modern society crumbles and it's populous in shambles,
we have mass losses on our hands.

People's pain and panic stain the land,
reaction to the few who still act bland;
denying any problems.

Well...the problems are still real, and the panic all us feel,
about our future being doubtful,
It's all quite a mouthful and the calm has burst it's seal.

Now the world is waking up to it's destruction,
a destruction imagined in our dreams, in our darkest fears
that a nuclear Armageddon would arise;

...but it didn't have to be
and that will haunt us most of all.
