A Poem by beefjerky

a poem on what happens to an egyptian after death...


Embalmer: A man just died.

Man: Our family cried and cried!

Embalmer: Send him on his way.

Man II: By the end of the day?

Embalmer: Yes, off with him to the west side!

Author's Note

This poem may sound stupid because I had to write it for LA class. To those of you who don't know the "death procedure", when an Egyptian dies, his/her body is embalmed. That means mummified and prepare dfor the afterlife. After the embalming performed by a specialist, he/she is send off to the west side of the Nile. The suhn "dies" in the west at the end of every day so Egyptians believed the dead goes where the sun dies.
