I shall resolve to leave this
Place now...
And steadfastly search out,
Nestling between ridge and bluff
Amidst the folds of a foreign

Several acres of unkempt ground

Upon which stands...
Crumbled stone walls
With an exposed slate roof in

In ancient days when pharaohs reigned
The kingdom of the pyramids,

Or at least doing so they feigned,
And those gods too blessed them and...
