Uncle Bob's Words

Words, poetry, stuff like that

At death

At death

A Pharaoh’s heart was weighed

By jackel-faced Anubis against

A feather of Maat, Maat of justice.

If the heart balanced,

Hello, heaven.

If it dipped, uh-oh,

Here’s that sand nap.


So, now

When a romance ends then

Shortcomings are weighed and weighed again

To find a slight downward pull of guilt

That unbalances.

Good bye, God speed.

The door behind you.

The rest ahead.
