Threat Assessment

by Dan Campion

“US Air Force is guarding against electromagnetic pulse attacks. Should we worry?”

Sure, what’s another worry more,
Electrons on a spree,
A pulse that fries, from shore to shore,
Our power grid. Search me
Why we would shirk a further dose
Of pure anxiety.
Our limit? We’re not even close.
Pile on the EMP.
