Mobile Egyptian Deities - Poem by Bill Mitton

Two Mobile Egyptian Deities
both black and both annoyed
the object of their earthly Wrath
a pingpong ball caught
beneath a non-celestial fridge.
Surely Worlds will
shake for this or
Someones Nile run red
but no
for they are
deities with style and class
the Sacrificial wall paper
at the stair head will
stand shredded in mute
testiment to their
tempered wraths.

For Kane and Mabel,
Black Feline Deities, pretending mortality and fooling no one.

    a wild poem
    flipping
    back and forht
    between eternity
    and the common light of day
    a splendid accomplished
    giving a smile to even
    a mummy, long dusted into oblivion.
