  • Scraping the earth in search of the essence
    Metallic rock ore where iron is present
    Extraction smelters burn hot with phosphorescence

    Rivulets of sweat steam hot in the mold
    Splashes in magenta, yellow and gold
    Glowing sparks flashing too hot to hold

    Made for pounding a massive weight
    Forming metal, willing fate

    Power blasted streams engage the injection
    The mechanism reacts with affection
    Processing starts and so begins infection

    Altered shape, affected matter
    Giving form, an ominous factor
    Never break it, it will never bend
    The Anvil was Forged In Fire

    Made for pounding a massive weight
    Forming metal, willing fate Writer/s: DAVE JAMES ALLISON, IAN THOMAS DICKSON, ROBB GEZA REINER, STEVEN BARRY KUDLOW
