Eternally She dwells in the Great Below
Raging and wrathful when rightful boundaries are crossed
Enki’s twin, death and decay to mirror His creation
She weeps for the infant dead, who never knew life, for She is the Great Mourner
Hard-hearted they call Her, for killing Her sister Inanna
Kurgarra and galatur showed Her compassion by crying with Her
Irkalla’s Queen in gratitude granted them any boon they wished, and
Gave them the rotting corpse of Her sister Inanna as they asked.
Arise Inanna did, fed the Bread of Life, and went above to much celebration —
Lonely is the job of shepherding the Dead, no matter which pantheon You hail from.
