the hittites

the hittite empire was founded by hattusili
who engaged in rapine and plunder quite freely
but hattusli was only the first
and some of his successors were even worse

hattusini was followed by mursilish
who trampled his neighbors like a whirling dervish
and after him came telepinu
but i don't know much about him, do you?

watch out for tukulti-ninurta
do him wrong and he'll hurt ya
but good king suppiluliuma
though mighty, had a great sense of humor
