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

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.
