Egypt

Egypt

An Eagle falls from the Sun over Egypt
Mourning light, casting pyramidal shadow
O’er seven wonders of men, standing conscript
Crescent moons rising, democrats follow

People en mass, peaceful but furious
Brotherhoods strain, now becomes infamous
Army calling these protests glorious
Spurious writings upon papyrus

Coup de grâce, sphinxian democratic
Wrath with diplomacy, fleeing kinship
Riddled crowds, unfortunate victims of
Isis taking the double crown of kingship

His Godlike wings cloaking on high the light
For messengers, his talons cells, black as night.
