Subject: Neutron bombs
From: John Foxen

I see that Samuel T Cohen, the designer of the neutron bomb, has passed on. He described his creation as a humane weapon because "if we are going to go on fighting therser fdamnedf good wars, shelling and bombing cities to smithereens and wrecking the lives of their inhabitants, might there be some kind of nuclear weapon that could avoid all this?"
Donovan summed it up in a song that had the chorus: "Neutron you're the real estate bomb/ The property stays but the people are gone."
The chorus has been running through my head all day but I can't remember the rest. Can anyone help?

Neutron
Music and lyrics by Donovan P. Leitch

I was born in the rubble of World War Two
Played ball where the tall buildings once grew
But today there's a way to make war pay
A new toy from the boys in the USA

Neutron, you're a real estate bomb
The property stays but the people are gone
Neutron, Neutron, you're a real estate bomb
The property stays but the people are gone

You got a boom like a doom atomica
You got a taste like the waste of nuclear
And you fly like a supersonica
You're a likeable kinda bomb

Neutron, you're a real estate bomb
The property stays but the people are gone
Neutron, Neutron, you're a real estate bomb
The property stays but the people are gone
Neutron, Neutron, you're a real estate bomb
The property stays but the people are gone
Neutron, Neutron, you're a real estate bomb
The property stays but the people are gone

If the Waraw pact had attacked into Western Europe, all the fighting would have been on our soil.
Apart from not destroying our own countries, the neutron bomb would have been more effective against tank crews than other nukes.

Hmmm... At that time and place, wouldn't they have played football rather than ball?

Yours pedantically!

I don't remember that particular Donovan song. What album was it recorded on, what is the air?
