Before the End of the Cold War

Dr. Strangelove
was his favorite movie
when he found himself
(due to a chain of events
that seemed beyond his control,
such as sometimes happens
when one is young)
in the Air Force
sending super-duper-crypto-coded
ultra-top-secret messages
(never knowing what they contained)
to the old B-52s
that were always flying
(he watched them come and go
as they took off
with their atomic payloads)
2 hours away
from their respective targets.

Just in case.
