ltllvi Ellll Till ARMS RAGE- sivtllli mmm mt. 1 1 i f 148 l Traces Traces 1conr.j Beruit's massacre proved that no one was safe from war's pilage and plunder, No fault was claimed for merciless deaths of civilians in great numbers. South American revolt was as common, it seems, as ice cream at family reunions. Governments fell and were raised once again leading only to disillusion. Nicaragua and El Salvador were inflamed, their streets filled with riots and burnings While nations abroad planned war strategy sure to increase foreign earnings. American soil was not immune to the sorrow of disheartening news, There were race riots in Miami, and Southern floods gave us all the blues. We were shocked and frightened of murderous death by poisonous cyanide Some fool had laced into Tylenol, from which seven people died. And then we were all surprised to learn of Leonid Breshnev's death, However the Soviets would prove that Andropov's like the rest. We thought, at first, this might be the end of Russian undiplornacy, However, the man who took control was formerly head of the KGB. Nuclear war was threatened nowg "No Nukes" was the cry of many, While our administration and the Russians desired to spend a pretty penny. MX missiles were the craze for which our leaders seemed to beg, But it was rough to commend nuclear war, it cost a job for Alex Haig. It was again time for us to choose, filling out election ballots, And the Democrats proved once again they've the better propaganda talents. In Texas we were all enraged, the utilities were way too high, Three days after Clements was gone, White told us he couldn't even try. Benson was challenged by good ol'jim Collins, it was a blistering race, But Lloyd ran away with the election once again staying his place. For the first time since 1964 a Texas criminal faced execution, As in Huntsvillejames Brooks died for murder by a lethal injection, The shuttle flew into space once again, soon to take civilian passengers, NASA gave the world a thrill with the voyages of Columbia and Challenger. ln medical history Barney Clark was the highlightg the memory of his courage impar A feeling of sadness in the loss of his life after accepting an artificial heart. Though it warranted more research, the light of hope remained strong in our eye That the medical world will someday perfect the idealism of Dr. DeVries. The year was not a total disaster, it was filled with mass enjoying, We laughed and played to keep ourselves fit, everyone took up jogging, S There was a small scandal, Debra Sue won the crown, with a change of her nose, It doesnt quite matter, she was still Miss Americag they'll keep her I suppose. Movies brought us love and romance and caused our thoughts to roam. As the officer became a gentleman and ET did go home. Hoffman thrilled us with laughter and went to town in drag, But Ben Kingsley took the golden statue, as Ghandi he could brag. Newman's blue eyes filled the screen with a compelling courtroom trauma, And we were delighted to see Magnum on film in "China's" melodrama. Television changed novels into epics using many a great film star, The networks brought romance in the Thornbirds, and drama in Winds of War. After 11 years of laughter at the 4077th, it was time to say goodbye, To Hotlips, Potter, Klinger, Charles, Mulcahey, Bj and Hawkeye.
