The Mummy

The Mummy

A Poem by Einstein Noodle
"

Ka, Ba and Akh are three different souls the Ancient Egyptians believed in ..for those of you that would like a little more information check this out .. http://myweb.usf.edu/~liottan/theegyptiansoul.

The Mummy

Mummy

Honest brutality in this dying.
Would you agree?
Reapers cutting edge dissecting 
Mowing lineage with glee.

Ka

Fruitful symbiosis ensconced on
meaty walls entombed.
Seedling treasures imploring
from the womb

Ba

packaging an empty shell
pleading selfish need.
obstructed by the greedy.
ignoring innocent seed

Akh

highest of all attainment
living justly before the Hall
my life, my body and 
most of all My Soul


Mummy


Mummy wrapped spices beleaguer 
Disembodied heart and liver
Frees the dead                alive
relegating for profit ...another fetus shivers

Imagine being so afraid of death that you would chose to go on as a desiccated corpse … I think there was something else about having a conscious as light of feather … but still shivers. A terrifying write, E:)

And there is no limit to your imagination translated into creatures that could very well haunt anyone.

Each stanza unwraps :):):) a different kind of encounter, which captures prisoner all of the reader's senses. there is history and science all mixed well in this thriller of a write.

Fascinating piece - and I don't know if it was intentional but there was this nod to a current event in the last stanza - livers and fetuses. Well penned.
