THE FOREVER WAR
By David Allen

At the turn of the century
my love and I watched the sun set
one last time and marveled
at the cloud formation that
appeared as a giant anvil.
I wondered then if it was a sign
announcing the last century’s swords
were to be beaten into plowshares,
greeting an age of peace.

Now, some 15 years later,
I know the answer.
The anvil was to shape
even more swords
for what is becoming
a century of endless conflict.

My second book of poetry, “(more)’ is now available on Amazon Kindle. The paperback edition is also available. If you want a signed copy, email me at david@davidallen.nu. Order your copy today! I am like most poets — poor.
