The Mummy

A Poem by Einstein Noodle

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

As someone who is interested in Egyptology, I was drawn into this piece...I've always been fascinated by the Ka, Ba and Akh and if memory serves correctly the Ka has been controversially called the spiritual double which lives beyond death; the Ba is a spiritual manifestation that comes into being following death; and the Akh is considered 'effectiveness' that can be reciprocated between the living and the dead (you maintain my vessel and tomb and I will maintain you)...but .words like reapers, dissecting, mowing lineage, selfish, profit speak to something else, like grave robbing (or disturbance) or the destruction of the 'souls' through their use for profit...I really enjoyed this, E...well-done, my friend :)

The Ancient Egyptians are a fascinating culture. The pyramids, the tombs, the Gods they worshiped.....it amazes me how you are able to write about anything and do so with unforced rhyme and perfect rhythm. It's a pleasure to read you. Lydi**
