Mummy Mayhem

Press to play

I was once a Lord
an Idol
now nothing
My pyramid colossal and vast
buried under shifting sands
My skin once smooth, seamless
now rough and dry
My body excavated

I felt giant once

now puny


in some see thru wall

Once my army enormous

Now my servants midget.

Someone rescue me....

  1. Best part I like; My pyramid colossal and vast buried under shifting sands . You obviously used a thesaurus and understand how to write free form poetry. You are a great writer.


  2. It really does create the mystery of Egypt, gets you thinking about their amazing achievements
    Very good writing, Alex.


  3. Hi my name is Sindy, I think that your poem is really good and I like how you used interesting words instead of it's really sandy in the desert.
