Nebuchadnezzar - Poem by Mason Maestro

He ruled you absolute
Reigning over some dried up empire
Prominence fallen from your old ways
Short of forgiveness
Don’t repeat it
Easy, now

He doesn’t look a thing like ‘nezzar
But he subjugates like a tyrant
Annexes for retirement
Just like Phoenicia
When you were Babylon

We can’t climb out this canyon
Harder than ever before
I know the plebs from Lyria
Sent to their deaths in western Syria
Let's take it easy
Easy now

Our tower burned down
The pride of a single tongue
Reaching high, our skyline
That turned the tide
When you were Babylon
When you were Babylon

And often you envision old Sumer
And see the place turned Assyrian
But he’s just a Hussein
A Shiite Muslim dictating stain
Not one who captured Jerusalem
When you were Babylon

They say your Euphrates’ water
It ain't so clean
The lifeblood it once was
It ain’t the Jordan but you can dip your feet
Every once in a little while
