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.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
