Author notes

Babylon was once the most beautiful city along the Euphraidies River in the Mesopotamia region, and 50 kilometers from Baghdad and a country now known as Iraq. Is it not ironic that even after 4000 years that region still is in a state of turmoil.

Oh Sweet Babylon


Alas! Alexanders soldiers have come and gone

They have raped and pillaged beautiful Babylon.

What was once the Flower of the Euphraidies

are now in ruin and  rubble from their armies.


Oh Sweet beautiful Babylon how I mourn for thee

Your Hanging Gardens and flowers no longer will I see.

Once the streets were filled with peddlers bartering their wares

Now they are desolate with their bones and my despair.


Oh sweet Babylon my own true love defended thee

His dust and ashes now blow in the breeze.

A slash and a thrust from a fiery sword,

Felled the warrior that I adored.


Oh Sweet Babylon These soldiers have taken all from meí

My love , My Heart, my family and my virginity.

ravaged by the victors one and two at a time

No one to stop them from doing  this vile war crime.


Oh Sweet Babylon I have been thrown in your streets,

Among the bones dirt and blood suffered from our defeat.

Alone, abused and half dead  I feel I canít go on

My funeral pyre will be on the streets of my Beloved Sweet Babylon.
