Sinks the sun below the desert,
Golden glows the sluggish Nile;
Purple flame crowns Spring and Temple,
Lights up every ancient pile
Where the old gods now are sleeping;
Isis and Osiris great,
Guard me, help me, give me courage
Like a Queen to meet my fate.

“I am dying, Egypt, dying,,”
Let the Caesar’s army come –
I will cheat him of his glory,
Though beyond the Styx I roam;
Shall he drag this beauty with him –
While the crowd his triumph sings?
No, no, never! I will show him
What lies in the blood of Kings.

Though he hold the golden scepter,
Rule the Pharaoh’s sunny land,
Where old Nilus rolls resistless
Through the sweeps of silvery sand –
He shall never say I met him
Fawning, abject, like a slave –
I will foil him, though to do it
I must cross the Stygian wave.

Oh, my hero, sleeping, sleeping –
Shall I meet you on the shore
Of Plutonian shadows? Shall we
In Death meet and love once more?
See, I follow in your footsteps-
Scorn the Caesar in his might;
For your love I will leap boldly
Into realms of death and night.

Down below the desert sinking,
Fades Apollo’s brilliant car;
And from out the distant azure
Breaks the bright gleam of a star.
Venus, Queen of Love and Beauty,
Welcomes me to death’s embrace,
Dying, free, proud, and triumphant,
The last sovereign of my race.

Dying, dying! I am coming,
Oh, my hero, to your arms;
You will welcome me, I know it –
Guard me from all rude alarms.
Hark! I hear the legions coming,
Hear the cries of triumph swell,
But, proud Caesar, dead I scorn you –
Egypt, Antony, farewell.

“Nice kitty,” said lady of Niger
When deep in the mouth of the tiger.
He went on and ate her,
For that was his nature.
Kind words will not tame a wild tiger.

Joyce Carol Oates: “All we hear of ISIS is puritanical & punitive.
Is there nothing celebratory & joyous?”

While in the clasp of deadly asp,
Fair Cleopatra said,
“I do admire its pretty head”,
And with those words fell dead.

Joyce Carol Oates lamented that only the puritanical and punitive was heard about ISIS and then asked, “Is there nothing celebratory and joyous?”

The one who says Muslim is one leaders muzzle.
Just why is a riddle, a mystery, puzzle.
Transparently obvious for wise man and fool:
A part of the Quran makes some that are cruel.
And equally sure is Osama Bin Laden,
That treacherous fellow on whom we have trodden,
Was Muslim, not Christian, not Buddhist or Hindu,
Whose motive was jihad, who said that I’ll end you.
Now ISIS, the heartless, beheads those who cross it.
Islamic’s the first word. Those letters emboss it.
So why the reluctance that spade is a spade?
Just stop all denying and don’t be afraid;
Just stop all the lying and end the charade.
