'Twas in the cradle of civilization (Mesopotamia. The fertile crescent) where I was struck with a sort of possession. Bizarre visions invaded my mind. They brought forth a revelation. Possessed by whom? Given gnosis of the ancient future by whom? Why, by “Kingu” 'twould seem.
'Twas “Akitu,” (Babylonian festival.)
A time when grand homage was paid to the “Dingirs,” (gods.)
Oh, how “the blood of Kingu,” (man) celebrated “Marduk’s” victory over “Tiamat”.
The ode of Enuma Elis (story of creation) was passed on to the next generation of Kingu’s blood.
Whilst others paid homage to Marduk, one gave praise to Kingu. “Azag,” (The Great Serpent.) An ancient Sumerian sorcerer. One whom conquered Babylon with the aid of Kingu. Through evocation he summoned the Dingir (deity,) Kingu. Through praise and obedience he obtained that which he desired:
“RABUM ILU KINGU”
RABUM ILU KINGU USMI
RABUM ILU KINGU MELLAMU
AZAG INA KISPU SISTU RABUM ILU KINGU TAMU SEMU
AZAG NADANU BITU ANNA KINGU
INA KISPU AZAG ABATU NISE MATATI KISITTI QATIVA
AZAG SAR BABYLON
AZAG QATISU BABYLON
BABYLON AZAG WARDUM
BABYLON SEMU AZAG
KINGU NADU BABYLON ANA SEPIYA
AZAG SEPSU INA KINGU
AZAG ANA SIMTIM ALAKU BALU KINGU
“Great God Kingu”
Great God Kingu, one whom shows the way.
Great God Kingu, one whom shines so bright it inspires fear and awe.
I Azag, summon you great God kingu through sorcery, so that we might make an oath and that I may give obedience unto you.
I give tribute unto you Kingu.
Through sorcery I was able to destroy the people of the land I conquered.
I’m now king of Babylon.
I have seized Babylon.
Babylon has become enslaved by me.
Babylon obeys me.
Great Kingu, you have brought Babylon to my feet.
For it is through you I am powerful.
And without you, I will surely die.
