Unhappy Cleopatra

Anubis, Isis, Osiris, Horus
Hear now our sorrowful chorus
Another betta apporaches
To balance the scale of souls.

Though her scales be black as night
You'll find her heart is light--
Ammut shall not get his wish;
He shall not feast upon this fish.
Let Thoth's records show
The love that she has known
That still shines here so bright,
As she goes into the starry night.

A penny for her thoughts
And beauty that fades not.
Rosemary for her memory
And the green scales the gods now see.
A pebble from her home
As proof of love she was shown.
She will stand before Osiris, proud,
In her linen shroud--
While Nepthys weaves her arts
Cleo still holds our hearts.

Anubis, Isis, Osiris, Horus,
Hear now our woeful chorus:
Help the Bard--who sorrow wears--
Wipe away the Poet's tears.

While Cleo through the last gate goes
We travel to where the water flows:
There shall we build a pyre
And feed her to funeral fire.
There will her ashes light
Go swiftly into starry night.
