Music:crown me king- in those days there were giants
semiramis sat up night after night over the body of her son & husband. that great hunter. she poured myrr over his body to disguise the smell of the rot, she drapped clean linen over his face so she could not see the carrion beetles crawl in his eye sockets. semiramis stayed with nimrod, casting her spells & invoking dread names. her lusts were great, her desire to be deified was worn about her head like a diadem. so there she stayed, while her people battled each other, while great worms rose out of the desert to slam their bodies together, dueling in the heat-lightning. & she was rewarded. her vigil at the temple was interuppted by the hunter's brother. her son. & when she looked into tammuz's eyes, she knew nimrod had returned to her.
