Radioactive gasses grew in northern temperate zones,
Spewing dust over major towns.
Scientists said the data had not shown
A danger to people was falling down.
Still, worry could not be put to rest
With reporters spreading the story
Of how the Russians might be the best
At lobbing nukes for Communist glory.
As the tainted dust continued to fall,
Its effects were seen as a cost of being free,
One leaders and lemmings accepted without gaul.
Fear equates man with moral gruel,
Lacking anymore vision than a drunkard fool.
