Creep

 

The Angel of Death creeps
through the house of Pharaoh

Nefreteri weeps over her firstborn
only child in woe

Her jealousy and anguish
further hardening her husband's
cold as stone heart

Ramses on his knees
begs Moses to, Go!
Depart from Egypt!
Take your pestilence, disease
and child murdering god
with you far from here!


The Deliverer gathers up his flock
who follow him into the desert
to continue their suffering year
after year

And I have to ask myself
Who was the real creep in this drama?
