Oh Egypt,

Your children are awake, they cry out for freedom
antiquities are scattered and blood is flowing like jeweled rubies studded in the gravel and sand
fresh, young and real, the young ones stand with arms linked to protect you
and some would have them entombed like Tutankhamen
captured and preserved forever
marked in history for millennia and then made part of a guided tour of curiousity
and in this exhibit may I draw your attention to the people that once arose for dignity and their rights
It drew millions forth from oppression
Oh Egypt,
Feed your people and release them from bondage to walk in beauty in the sun again
We are nothing without you

Oh Egypt
