Enûma Eliš — Re-blogged from Amit Poetry

This post by AMIT RAHMAN, one of my favorite bloggers, is SO GOOD that I checked the Reblog button for approval to re-post it. Here’s the link to the original post. https://amitpoetry.wordpress.com/2016/04/15/enuma-elis/#comment-6929

Poems

They came from Nibiru, to mine
the third rock from the sun
and things were going smooth until, in due time
there was a mutiny among
the Anunnaki in those labor camps!
   

A mutiny that drove the Nephilim
aristocrats to enact a new race
of miners by mixing their genes
to transform a Habilis into a Sapiens
and thus we came to be in the sacred Eridu,
a home for the Nephilim far from their real one,
an Eden for the first earthling or Adamu!
    

Such is the tale of creation in ancient Sumer,
the tale of the Anunnaki from Nibiru!

  1. It’s a marvelous tale (tale not meaning it isn’t true), and this retelling is wonderful. A lyric record of Sumer’s creation myth (myth also does not mean it isn’t true–quite the contrary). Thank you for sharing this work from Amit!

    1. yes, Amit’s poetry is wonderful. He’s one of my favorite bloggers. The story of Gilgamesh is fascinating. I “discovered” Sumerian poetry and writing back at the community college…I and another student got “literature and writing” and we had a great time with it. It was actually a World Civ course on Mesopotamia…included the whole neighborhood. 🙂
