    As the world's longest river (she and I have a history)

    Embarked upon the sexes in true animal fashion

    Passionately created love and pain

    MESOPOTAMIA,

    Land between her thighs

    RAISE the Tigris and Euphrates

    To a new low... whereby,

    Knowledge-of-self deprived men

    PROUD to a fault

    Display traits of cannibalism

    In exasperation...

    Thus, our downriver plight

    Inviting maternal urges to drown them

    In a salty mix of BitchesBrew

    Selfishly though, ((purr))

    We adore her... ASIA,

    Garden of Eden,

    LOVE of life itself ~

    Knowledge-of-self deprived men

    PROUD to a fault

    As we read you words we are taken on a trek through her currents, seeing a reflection of ourselves. Creativity to the max.
