The Fallout Could Last Awhile

Once in a bookstore auction
I saw a pamphlet
From the city of St. Louis
“How to Survive the H Bomb”.

Civil Defense, duck under your desk,
Keep lots of canned food and lots of water,
And for God’s sake build a fallout shelter.
The fallout could last awhile.

The 50 s lived under a mushroom cloud,
I live under mine.

After my divorce,
After the money crunch,
After the dead end jobs,
After the consumer credit counseling,
I went underground.
The fallout could last awhile.

TWoMI have written for myself for 40 years and read widely. It took the influence of my dear wife Sarah Basore—Sara Saint John to you,—to make me want to write for others. Henry Kuttner, Robert Burton and Joss Whedon are my role models.
