As the pebbles devoured the succulents
That is one tasty morsel at a time
In this desert that is so ancient

What is growing is rosemary and thyme
On the two holes that look like two big eyes
Eyes of skeleton in the wartime

Inside the cave probably some spies
Where they lived and ate and looked out for foes
On this barren field where no rule applies

What’s inside this cave were also burrows
Where moles and rats hideaway underground
And they waited with their bows and arrows

They’re haunted by images of hellhounds
The hellhound let out a roar that shook walls
Life was hell indeed on this battleground

Further afield they heard some cannonballs
Could blast the walls of Babylon itself
Luckily didn’t hit them then came rainfall

On this desolate field some histories
War was held here with lots of casualties
As the pebbles devoured the succulents
In this desert that is so ancient*
