Beneath Babylon’s blue baldachin,
Boldly brocaded by blazing blooms,
Bazaar brokers busily bargain,
Buyers bankrupt—but business booms.
Bearded blacksmiths, bare-boned beggars,
Brave bards, bankers, bubbly bakers,
Borrow beyond barren budget books,
By bling besotted: bounty-bent brutes.
Bedtime-bound Babylonians, buoyantly,
Bring back bejeweled beauties, blithely,
Beneath bedchambers, beautifully built,
Bright-baubled basements brilliantly brim.
But behind bright buildings, brawny-bricked,
Babes, before blissful, babbling bestir;
By breakfast, Babylon’s bought beauty
Blindly becomes banal burglars’ booty.
Beneath Babylon’s black baldachin,
Bleakly bespeckled by bleeding blooms,
Bruised, bludgeoned bazaar businessmen
Belabored byes breathe—but business booms.
