Babel

Reams and reams of paper

Wasted on Mesopotamia,

Discovering, Analyzing, deciphering, critiqueing

Lessons never quite learnt

Yet quietly, finally realizing

that peace is never a solution

The solution lies only in being prepared

For the sameness that comes next.

 

(On ancient Mesopotamia and the struggle between the Assyrians and Babylonians; a comparison to Modern Day Iraq)
