Filicide

Every first born;

none left alive;

 

fed to the crocodiles;

all drowning in blood

 

Pharaohs will carried out;

nile filled with bodies

 

Chosen people disgraced;

before the exodus

 

Ethnic cleansing

at work

 

Empire maintained at the expense

of murder

 

judgement withheld until the passover

 

None left alive

Every first born

 

When the Angel of death comes!!!!!

 

An eye for an eye,

a tooth for a tooth

Secrets

Mummification,

deification,

transformation into a god

 

Temple forever,

standing in time,

cannot be destroyed

 

Lost language of hieroglyphics,

hidden meanings in the pyramids,

still uncovering the secrets

Opening up the sarcophagus,

thousands of years entombed

 

dust clouds perfuse,

lifting the curse

 

black magic undone,

imhoteps return

Ramses II

Trudging in the mud,

taking the lashings,

a collective effort 

these huge stones,

 

Sweat pouring 

down our bodies,

we dare not fall

out of line.

 

To displease the master

is to die, a tight schedule

to finish his palace;

we will work day and night

 

With little or nothing to bring

home to our families, but the pain

in our eyes; stale bread, we will starve

like rabbits

 

Waking up again; another long day,

such is the life of a slave,

always fearing what will happen

but never able to conquer them.

 

Only Pharaoh has

and with that seed of doubt planted,

our faith in god slowly withers away

like our lives.

 

Cataracts begin to form from constantly looking

up at the sky:

any sign to help our resolve

but not even a mirage.

 

On earth it is pharaoh who has made himself god,

in his image, our lives have been molded,

to serve at his every bidding and whim,

until the very day we die.

 

There is no deliverance for the israelites,

as long as we are ok with continuing being slaves,

until then the land of milk and honey

will be so very far away; And god will never answer any of our prayers.

Anubis The Forecast

Folder: 
Poetry

The sand ascended,

A whirlwind closeby.

In the tomb,

Where the dead were lain to rest.

 

From this storm raised,

The aspect of Anubis;

The god that attends the dead,

To the hereafter...

 

With robust voice raised,

He let me know:

"Dead you go!"

My destiny written down.

 

A day hereafter,

In normal life;

I drowned into the lake,

Death had grabbed me tight.

Dead Universe

Folder: 
Cthulhu Mythos

We are walking corpses,

Zombies at best

How can I enjoy?

That what falls apart?

 

Great Pyramid

And feast of Nitokris

The Ghoul-Queen

Married to Kephren.

 

All are dead, dead,

Nothing alive, so sad.

Gods and man alike

In a murdered universe...

One Pharaoh To Another

Oh, Thutmose, what have you done?
Covering my name with slabs of clay,
erasing my image,
erasing my rule.

By Isis and Ra,
by the holy Aten disk,
what have you done?
Why is my land so barren,
why does war reap so horridly,
why, oh why, must you cover my name?

Things never needed to return,
no one told you my rule was evil.
You declared that yourself,
and then you declared war.

You know, I wore my fake beard
for the benefit of those like you,
those so against the rule of a woman,
who wished for that of a man.

I have done no wrong here,
I swear by goddess Ma'at
and her Feather Of Truth,
I have done no wrongs.
For in my rule, there was peace,
and in yours, war.

What wrongs you have made,
dear, Pharaoh Thutmose,
what war has scathed your land?
What famine has wreathed your muddled mind,
your heart as black
as the Kohl 'round your eyes?

When my dear husband died,
when the heir was far too young,
why shouldn't I have declared myself Pharaoh?
Why shouldn't I have ruled?
Just because I was born a woman?

But you declaim this horrid,
and after my death,
you bury my name,
you build walls around my monuments,
you destroy my life's work.

And where has that left you?
Unworthy of your name,
Thoth Is Born.
Bah! Thoth? I see no wisdom in those tired eyes.

First Among Noble Women, am I,
and I am worthy of my name.
You, oh, Thutmose, have ravaged this land.
And my name,
my name may be covered,
my name may be hidden 
under those layers and layers of clay,
but I know I'm not forgotten.
For here I am, walking the Field Of Reeds,
and where are you?

I should ask Hathor
to heal your land,
un-warp your battered mind,
but you've done this to yourself.
Fight your wars, oh, Pharaoh,
and I will fight mine.

But I must remind you,
your wars spill blood
and mine bring peace.
Who is better remembered,
oh Thutmose?
You, unwise and unworthy?
Or I, who brought peace and prosperity?

Now tell me,
will your life be remembered as great,
will your name be chanted 
across the sacred river?
Will Bast grant you a life of love
or will you be Set's slave?
Will sins weigh down your heart
when you meet Osiris
and are weighed against
Ma'at's sacred Feather Of Truth?
Or will it be devoured by Ammut?
Dooming you to eternal death.

Now, Thutmose,
how many will remember you as great?
Will you be known as Thutmose: 

Greatest of all Pharaohs?

Or will they remember me?
Trust me on this, trust me,
my name has not been forgotten,
My name 
-Hatshepsut-
shall never parish.

From one Pharaoh to another,
I swear you have my word.

Oh, God, how I adore ancient Egypt. Almost as much as I adore Astronomy.
