Babylon, Mistress of Greed

iaian7 » blog » poetry   John Einselen, 11.03.19    

Weep not for Babylon,
Mistress of greed;
Weep for her people,
Who took no heed.

The plight of the poor,
The cry of the orphan,
The fear of the foreigner,
Exploiting anyone.

Weep not for Babylon,
Mistress of greed;
Weep for her people,
Who took no heed.
