Post-Nuclear Real Estate Values

Should you
in finding the courage
to place your head
inside the lion’s maw
at the last moment
the one of truth
balk and withdraw
remember this
there are times
when suicide
is a justifiable impulse
and others when
plunging into death’s jaws
is better avoided
consider Khrushchev
his gamble in Cuba
know when to fold
know when to walk
weigh the odds
measure the worth
the big cat’s
always calling trump
leaving your hand
a smoking ruin
