How the face got on Mars
I'm gonna pick up after Anu and Alalu wrestled for kingship a second time Anu winning a second time, but Alalu bit off Anu's manhood stopping his bloodline. With the sperm in him it was poisoning Alalu, he was already beginning to die. so they exiled him on Mars. Neither on Earth nor Nibiru shall the exiling be! Anu was saying. On the way there is the planet mars with waters and an atmosphere it is endowed. Enki, as Ea, thereon made a pause; of it as a way station have I been thinking. Its net force is less than that of earth forceful, an advantage in wisdom to be considered In the celestial chariot Alalu shall be taken. On my departing from earth he with me shall make the journey. Around the planet mars we shall make circuits. To Alalua sky chamber we shall provide, To the planet mars in it will be descended. Alone on a strange planet an exile he shall be. His days to his last day by himself to count! thus did Anu words of judgment utter, solemnity were the words intended. By unanimity was this judgment upon Alalu imposed,in the presence of the heroes it was announced. let Nungal be my pilot to nibiru, there from chariots bearing heroes again to earth to pilot. Let Anzu join for the journey, of the descent to mars take charge. (Of course you can see mars has lakes and rivers, we'll get more into what happened to Mars later when we talk about the great flood.) So did Anu commandments utter. On the morrow departing was readied all who departs by boats to the chariot were ferried. a place for landing on firm soil you must prepare! To Enlil was saying. How mars as a way station to utilize plans you should be making. Farewells there were, both joyous and sorrow. Limping did Anu on the chariot embark, with his hands tied did Alalu the chariot enter. Then to the heavens the chariot soared up, and the royal visit had ended. They around the moon made a circuit, Anu by the sight was enchanted. Toward red hued Mars they journeyed, twice about it they circled. lower towards the strange planet they came, mountains sky-high and tears in the surface they noticed. Where Ea's chariot had once landed they observed, by a lakeside it was located. Slowed by mars net power, in the chariot the sky chamber they readied. Anzu its pilot unexpected words to Anu was saying. With Alalu to the firm soil of Lahmu I shall descend. With the sky chamber to the chariot to return I wish not! With Alalu on the strange planet I will stay; until he dies protect him. When he dies of his innards poison. As befits a king I will Bury him! As for me, I shall have made my name. Anzu they will say, against all odds to a king in exile a companion was. He saw things by others un seen, on a strange planet he faced unknown things. Anzu, they will say like a hero has fallen. There was tears in the eyes of Alalu, there was amazement in the heart of Anu. Your wish shall be honored, to Anzu Anu said. Hereby let a promise by me to you be made. On the next journey a chariot by Mars shall circuit its skyship to you shall descend. If alive it shall find you, the master of mars you shall be proclaimed. When a way station on mars shall be established its commander you shall be.. Anzu bowed his head. So be it Anu he said. now they head to Nibiru to to prepare new machinery to head back to earth to collect gold. I'll pick back up when they get back to mars. Unharmed it reached the Planet Mars, it circled the planet slowly to its surface descended. A faint beaming a group of heroes followed, Ninmah was going with them. Beside a Lakeside Anzu they found, from his helmet the signals were beaming. Anzu himself was without motion, prostrate he lay dead. Ninmah touched his face, to heart she gave attention, from her pouch she took out the pulser, upon Anzu's heart pulsing she directed. From her pouch she took out the Emitter its crystals life giving emissions on his body she directed. Sixty times Ninmah directed the pulsar, sixty times the emitter she directed. On the sixtieth time Anzu his eyes opened, with his lips motioned. Gently upon his face Ninmah water of life poured, his lips with it wetting. Gently he arose. Gentle into his mouth food of life she placed. About Alalu the him then inquired; of Alalu's death Anzu told them. He led them to a great rock, from the plain heavenward protruding. There to them what had happened he was telling: Alala soon after the landing from unremitting pain to scream began. From his mouth his innards he was spitting; in agony he peered over the wall! Thus was Anzu to them saying. He led them to a great rock, like a mountain from the plain heavenward rising. In the Great Rock a cave I found, Alalu's corpse therein it hid. Its entrance with stones I covered. So was Anzu to them saying They followed him to the rock, the stones they removed the cave they entered. Inside what of Alalu remained they found. He who once on Nibiru, a king was a pile of bones in a cave now lying! For the first time in our annals, a king not on Nibiru was buried! So did Ninmah say. Let him in peace for eternity rest! She was saying. They the caves entrance again with stones covered. The image of Alalu upon the great rock mountain the carved. The showed him wearing an eagles helmet; his face the made uncovered. Well, there you have it how the face ended up on Mars.
