Treasure Island

John G. Nelson

(August 24,1976 / Monrovia, Liberia)

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.

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
