Babylon


Babylon, the ravenous wolf,
whose hands Strangle the weak,
Devour the poor, pummel the small,
Plunder life, woes on the fatherless.

The wild beast, the dark serpent,
Whose hands sing wars & destructions
Creating mayhem & chaos in places,
& Murder those refusing to pay her.

Babylon, how she calls to doom,
Fetter them roots, mar them breast
Plunder them wealth, lead them death
Rot young foliage, steal them souls.

Babylon, the father of all injustices
He Praise and give birth to tyrannies,
& hide his hands amend peace treaties,
Whilst he torture the poor, the weak.

Babylon, the mighty white shark
Devour without mercy, power to tug
Come eat them alive, drink them blood,
and massacre, enslave them children.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
