Egypt

Red seas
Green lands
The knowledge of civilized man
Great architects of the world's wonders
Though of inbred line

Smells of the poor quarters and dried fish
Mixed with heavily incensed air
Seductive oval eyes
Slender bodies
Straight coal black hair

Land of the mysterious sphinx
Cat headed idols
Mummified pharaohs
Within the ancient pyramids lie

Valley of the Kings
The holy site for Royal Blood
Ra in his fire chariot
Into the sun would fly

The red lotus thrives
Around Egyptian ponds
On the banks of the Nile
Crocodiles warm themselves in the sun

Egypt center of the universe
When the world was still young
Rose with power
Bore the great Rameses
Faithful worshippers of the sun.
