Beneath the waves
Of oblivion
Lay Atlantis
To the daze
Of Babylon
In its sundry glories
Submerged beneath
Earthly clay
And mud
And tons of ocean
Waters clear blue

Covering the vast ruins
Of a continent
Lost to time
And tides
So deadly
So doomed
Darkened memories
Of a land

Where a people
Consumed by comforts
Finest silks
Unchecked lust
Desirous of leisure
Ignored warnings
As to their nature
As children of abundance

Meanwhile the beasts
Of the earth
Leaving the city state
So high and of great import
To drown
And its people bled
Into the blue
And disappearing for all existence
