I had to write a poem for each ancient culture I was studying. They took me under five minutes in total so sorry for the lack in quality. XD
Sun shines on Summarian skin, the river it flows over it's banks, the flood it kills, yet the flood it thrills, unpredicted by Summarians till, they grab their seeds, as the silt flows in.
They haul, they pull, they drag, they stack, bricks of clay, to large to mount, to sum to count, baked by sun, the Egyptians mount.
Dig the trench, scoop the clay, build a island, build a stream, follow our plans, keep it clean, learn to read, these walls are safe, this is all our space.
Larger than eye, it holds a lie, so little will work, hold this land, this land of rock, this land or dry, we stick to the rivers, we build iron nearby, walls that stretch, walls that hide, you never know the barbarians nearby.
