Anunnaki - Poem by Maurice Rowlands

Are you just a crumbling stone face
In an ancient Sumerian relief
A lost Mesopotamian belief
Or are you out there
Beyond Luna
Watching us quietly
From your hiding place
In the crystal diamond point
Of Orion’s arrow
Feeling sorrow
As our world slowly turns away
And slips down into the dark
Now is the time
To show us your spark

They are running out of Syria
Protecting their babies
From Islamic rabies
Sending one tiny heartbeat
To wash up on your celestial shore
We are paradise no more
Another Exodus
For you to witness
But do you feel sadness
As our engines falter
And our once blue oceans
Turn red with blood
When Eden has gone
It’s gone for good

Did you breathe our toxic rust
Or methamphetamine dust
If you are nothing but stone
Then who do we trust
I am not calling heaven
As I have no piety
For you are no deity
But are you watching quietly
From a distant star frequency
In Orion’s saddened face
Your hiding place
We sent you a spaceman from Nazca
And a hooked X in Nebraska
Maybe we went too far

Do you know
As we know
As they know
That war is coming
When the dove from the Ark
Will only find
Twelve war drums a drumming
Your crumbling stone face
Will be sold for gold
For their fucking bombs
And their guns and their knives
And then the lives
That you created, Anunnaki
Will be stories untold
