Ode to King Tutankhamon

Golden god king of unknown end thy mask

Precious crafted inlaid with ancient stones

Found when the heel of Carter’s humble ass

Stumbled into sands and secrets of your bones

Deep with Isis, Nephthys, Neith, Serket too

Below ancient tombs and older tales

Three golden coffins for a king so young

Imagine Second Ramses, O fortune!

That you King Tut should teach us thrones

Tomb raiders forced the Great to hold his tongue

Tutankhamon within his gilded shrines

And sarcophagus solid and secure

Grave robbers have been here, taken few gem lines

Jackal god Anubis guards the sacred lore

Where sleeps the precious royal innards

On Nubian steered boat ride to sunset west

The papyrus and the lily uniting this great land

The cobra and the vulture the royal youth invest

Alabaster wishes millions of years

When Ankhesenamon serves beyond the sand
