The Pyramids

Ancient Egypt

When the ancient workers add blocks to my veins,

the structure will be a place for the pharaohs remains.

They add the stone blocks one at a time,

with every new layer they add I will climb.

Lots of narrow tunnels and chambers inside,

where the pharaohs sacred tombs and valuables hide.

The pharaoh's mummified pet cat is also inside me,

right next to his ancient owner's dead mummy.

Hieroglyphics covering the roof and the halls,

tell the stories of ancient gatherings within the walls.

They put their jewelry in the tombs,

all of the jade necklaces, ruby rings, and gold spoons.

They will make statues of their beloved gods and the sphinx,

which they will cherish with their devine drinks.

And at last they put on the gold top,

then I will be done and it will be time to stop.

    I like the history lesson. I remember reading about their mummified pets. I guess i would want to take my beloved cat with me to the afterlife. Cats were like gods to the Egyptians. In my house they are treated that way too! Nice poem.
