Russian Bombers Playing Game of Chicken

The Russians in the Pacific continue to play the game of nuclear chicken
While the pace in North Korea to nuclear missiles quickens
Two Bear bombers enroute to Kodiak Island not on a scenic bear watching trip
Testing to see if they could through our air defenses slip
 Two fighters intercepted them 100 miles out
After escorted for a few miles they turned about
With tensions mounting on the Korean peninsula by the hour each day
Not a good idea to practice bombing approaches even with closed bomb bays
In a world where three nations each have the capacity to bring on true climate change in the form of a nuclear winter
With five nations with economies in the region so huge a war with WMD would have the world in the economic Dark Ages reenter
While another starving country wants to be the mouse that roared
By all sanctions and resolutions against it to totally ignore
Dangerous world with the clock ticking closer to midnight
Each day of sabers rattling about another missile test will we see again another daylight
We dodged a mistake and we obviously passed this Russian test
Among the big three nukers in the region we need to tone it down and provocations especially by Kim arrest
