Ancient Kings

When Sumer was young
No other civilization
Had even begun
More than just awakening
Sumer was advanced
With laws
Order and ideas
They celebrated life
Not death and tombs
They sought knowledge
Developed concepts of civility
They could make war
But they were not concerned
With battles and doom
They had met with
The gods from the sky
And prepared for the flood
Perhaps they were the keepers
Of the Garden of Eden
Their lands were fertile and rich
In some ways
They were humanity's womb
Sumer was the mother culture
She gave birth
To every other culture
That appeared on the earth
