Nimrud's Lamentations, Nimrud's Wrath. 2


I've been holding on to the pictures...for over 5 years now...I hid them, refused to share them with anyone...I would take them out every once in a while, study them, watch them closely, read the faces...and stack them away again...and for over 5 years, the wrenching pain, the fire I feel in my gut has not subsided not one iota...on the contrary, it keeps growing...a smoldering braise...and nothing will ever extinguish it...

There comes a point in anyone's life when one has to put an X - I have reached that point....I have put an X on you and everything you represent. EVERYTHING you represent...

The crimes have been too many - uncountable, the destruction - indescribable in words, the lies too intricate to unravel, and the pillaging, plundering, looting beyond anyone's imagination...

A nation of looters, thieves, bandits, rapists, torturers, liars, profiteers, exploiters, criminals, killers -- a nation of gluttony, concupiscence, envy, covetousness and greed...

Behind that politically correct public facade of yours, behind that veneer and the mask, behind lurks the biggest lie...behind it lurks the worshipers of dollars and gold...behind it lies miserliness, hoarding, avarice -- the mind of a cheap calculator, the mind of a miser accountant, the mind of a ravenous grabber...always avidly vying what others have, even if you are satiated to the point of exploding...but you are NEVER satiated. There are holes in your body and in your soul, and they will never be full...however much you grab, however much you loot, however much you steal, however much...however much you envy, covet and appropriate others, you will never be full...you will never be satisfied...and I now understand that this is how you've been cursed. Yes this is your Curse.
