The Story of River Nile with Egyptian Women

Once upon a time in the beautiful ancient Egypt
The sun asked the river Nile
From where you got this golden color?
The river Nile said
It's the color of the Egyptian women skin
When they come to bath
I melt some of their skin's color
The sphinx asked the river Nile
From where you got this sweet taste? The river Nile said
My sweetness is from the sweat of the Egyptian women.
The pyramid asked the river Nile
Why you flooding up every year
The river Nile said
When i feel longing to have more women
The Egyptian men protested against the Nile
Please stop your sexual harass
They always come back asking for more
The river Nile asked
So do you give them what they need?
The Egyptian men said
Yes we must do..We can't resist their temptation.
The same with me
The river Nile said.

    my tribute :)

    Ancient Egyptian Women Bathe In River Nile

    The River Nile, the sphinx, the pyramids,
    ask questions of us all, as do the bodies,
    skin tones, sweet sweat, female Egyptians.

    Ra and Nile melt golden skin colours,
    into fresh taste of sacred Nile waters,
    pyramids watch longing as Nile floods.

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
