Apep And The Thunder-Djinn


Beneath a mourning, darkened sky,
Far beyond perception’s eye,
Apep and the Thunder-Djinn
Battled Ra with serpent skin.

With this unfair advantage,
The Sun God went to grow with rage,
He burned a hot, impassioned red,
As thought a lesioned sun had bled.

Apep and the Stormy-imp,
With dress and fangs all neatly primp,
Began to fight among the stars
And battled ‘till the air showed scars.

A thunderous day would follow next,
The people knowing Ra was hex’d,
Shouted out towards the day,
That tomorrow Ra might Apep slay,
And release the Sun from a serpent’s play.

End.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
