Poem: "The Three Nevers"

This poem came out of the January 7, 2020 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] corvi. It also fills the "War" square in my 1-1-20 card for the Less Usual Bingo Patterns fest.  This poem has been sponsored by [personal profile] bairnsidhe.

"The Three Nevers"
-- a Mongol triad

Never will the ocean run dry.
Never will the fire turn cold.
Never will the Khan be forgotten.

* * *


A Mongol triad is a poem with three lines, customarily naming three things with a common quality.

Genghis Khan was a famous warrior and ruler in Asia.
