Whores Of Babylon

Ishtar
that
lysergic
jolt
electrifies
my psyche
and pushes
my heart
to pause
for a second
while
the sacred
whores
of Babylon
writhe
in ecstatic
union
to forge
a link
between
heaven
and earth
they meet
between
my sheets
and cradle
my heat
to melt
me into
my lover’s
arms
.

    It's lovely John Jack.. but the whores of Babylon were different to the present day whores!
    ....they lost their virginity in the temples...as a rule all classes ...but I believe they were faithful wives..,
    The Hamurabi laws were strong!
    You are amazing! Whores of Babylon what do you say Hamurabi? ...lol

  2. They were Priestesses to Isis - sacred whores and honoured as such.
