The Cuban Missile Crisis: On the Brink of Nuclear War - Owlcation


lived thru Cuban missile crisis
13 fraught days
in October 1962

O crikey

everyone was worried
we were on the brink
of oblivion
I think
I remember
I was only 12
 first noticed world news
that was long ago
I know

so will things improve now
I still wonder
 truly wonder


we were under
that damned dramatic
sword of Damocles
hanging over our heads
as it still is
