This I had to write for school as part of my final project to pass my Bible class. We had to do seven pieces of art based on Revelation, and poetry falls into the art category. The inspiration for this is in Revelation 18 where it describes the fall of Babylon, and so I wrote from that chapter with a Fantasy sort of aura.
The Fall of Babylon
Oh, Babylon. Mighty Babylon.
Why hast thou fallen into darkness?
Once a great place of beauty and grace,
Now the Abyss where demons roam and pillage.
The wine runs thick,
Down throats and through the streets.
It is like blood drenching the world—
Thy wicked people of Babylon.
The Dove pleads with thee to emerge from thy evil revelry.
Escape the grasp of the red dragon,
That age-old serpent called the Devil.
Let the Lamb crush his head!
“Come again to the light,” pleads the Dove.
Do not fall, oh wondrous Babylon.
* * * * * * * * * * * *
“Alas, alas,” the Dove cries in later days.
His tears become the rain,
And they fall into the shadow;
It will forever enshroud the once-majestic city.
Babylon is no more.
