When There Were Gods

 

When There Were Gods.

When Enlil, was God of the great space between Earth and Heaven,

like a wild bull, he thrust into the mountain of the East

and she delivered herself of Summer and Winter like rich cream.

 

When Enki, ruled the deep sweet water between Earth and Below

like a rampant bull he went between the two rivers

seeded the Tigris and Euphrates with sparkling water.

 

The man with the black heart raised his arm to the sky, screamed

and six million were struck by lightning he pulled down from above.

The man with the black heart thrust his hands into the soil, raged

and six million were consumed by flames he pulled up from Below.

 

I pray for Enlil to once again rule between Earth and Heaven.

I pray for Enki to once again rule between Earth and Below.

I pray for the Wild Bulls to return, for Summer and Winter

to be again delivered as sweet honey and rich cream.
