Derived from G.I.s during the Vietnam war; a situation where every available weapon was fired as much as possible at anything that could conceivably be a target for one minute. Good for discouraging base-infiltrating NVA troops and clearing LZs as well as blowing off steam.
No, Vietnam’s mad minute’s not a math drill
Designed to master number facts skill
Mad minutes discourage infiltration by NVA
Encroaching on encampments night and day
Mad minutes into irate wild wood bestow
Such a fantastic light show.
