Blue Suits....Corporate Headquarters Hinnon.

From the day that Cain killed Able
to the flooding of the flood
and the dawn of Babel
this became Babylon
Nimrod struck a blow
for blood to flow and flow
Assyrians cruel in their cruelty
followed one by one nation states
warfare is a business all powerful
a treasures trove of the dead
today blue suits are worn tidy
neat with labels sewn on
in Babylon
Moloch manmade god is served
the bodies of the young
maimed
trussed up
tossed up
burnt up
in the cause
to burn in Gehenna
just a refuse heap smoldering
Topeth for godless men.
From the day that Cain killed Able
to the flooding of the flood
Babel became Babylon
men bearing arms decorated as art
words are the first fusillade
shouted by those knowing
WORDS
are power
fear and fear feared by the meek
sheared like sheep lining up
a patriot act an artifact from Babylon
to Rome all hail be nailed
you surely will be impaled
blue suits are worn tidy
neat with labels sewn on
in Babylon.
War is a business a game of power
death the commodity traded
Topeth for godless men
shouting without conviction
“in God we trust” rejoinder “Allah Akbar”
oxymoron
Babylonians wearing
blue branded suits
corporate headquarters
Hinnon.

Artist's Description

Babylon recorded in scripture was where the common language was “confused” and the beginning of nation states and that can be argued as to where and when mankind started to collect themselves as nations and if in fact language was “confused” at Babel. Warfare has been used for various purposes, conquest, self defense, accumulation of spoils both human and monetary wealth at the expense of the vanquished. Today warfare continues and still is the number one business interest by arm merchants it is very revealing as to who is the biggest manufacture of these tools of death. The constant being fear and being the recipient of aggression both real and sometimes just xenophobia to continue business as usual and complacency if you disagree with policy of the nation you reside in.

I wrote this rumination after having read Boyd Millers “Black Line” I suggest you give it a read eloquent is an understatement.
