This War will be Four

This war will be four 

 

for if it were to be three

 

we would be dissimulating 

 

a half-century of conflict

 

known as the Cold War 

 

 

which was 

 

unbearably hot 

 

around much of the world 

 

 

Looking forward

 

such as is my disposition

 

I smell a conflict 

 

that will put wars bygone

 

into a separate category 

 

from that which is about to come

 

 

A war that will be more vicious 

 

more global 

 

more drawn out 

 

than anything we have known before.  

 

 

World War I was supposed to last weeks

 

It lasted four years

 

World War II was supposed to last months 

 

It lasted six years

 

World War III/ The Cold War was supposed to last seconds

 

It lasted half a century…
