THE CREATURES WHO SALTED CARTHAGE
Old poisons bake from the soil;
Pluto, underworld god, pitches
Plutonium, god of dirt and death.
What was it ****** cried --
Judische Physik? His lucky hate
Kept Dybuk in the dust,
The devil inside uranium.
But, ****** left us behind:
The creatures who salted Carthage.
When the Romans captured Carthage (Libya), they tore the city down and dumped fifty thousand tons of salt so nothing could grow. I imagine they would have nuked it if they could have.
