"Oh, Mesopotamia"

When the warriors return from battle...
Will they return with Tales of the Arabian Nights...
And of sacred sites and water works,
All visited and "saved"?:

Will they be able to recount to generations
Yet unborn
Of the wonders of the BIRTHPLACE OF CIVILIZATION?
Of the "Fertile Crescent" between Tigris and Euphrates?

This was Home to Hammurabi and the code of LAW
Chiseled in cuneiform hieroglyph in stone...
Home to The Diaspora...
Home to "the tower of Babylonia"...

"Oh, Greater Mesopotamia"......

Now that we have left YOU in ruins...
Release us, please, from "your grip"...

"Oh, Mesopotamia",
All along YOU knew:

WATER IS MORE PRECIOUS THAN GOLD (or oil)..
