Canción del Faraón “Song of The Pharoah”

 

 

 

 

Eyes of the heretic
Elegant visage
Steadfast to her heritage
Of dedicated heart
The great queen of an infantry great many thousand large
A nation famed to venerate her charge

 

Leading from the front with blunt-edged cudgel seldom ever called to arms
Most would come undone on introduction to her devastating charm
Both resolute and calm
Her black lace threaded through each weathered psalm
To placate she clenched her palm
Bled destinies from fate disarmed
Not a solitary drop be spilled
Against her will forearmed
For such was neither in her nature or ornate command
The jewels within headdress attested exaltation uncontested
Gilded armour double-breasted
Harboring great power vested
Never one time bested or invested to alarm
For such was her perpetual allegiance to lead march

 

Eyes of the heretic
Elegant visage
Steadfast to her heritage
Of dedicated heart
The great queen of an infantry great many thousand large
This nation famed to venerate her charge

 

Her name was framed in hieroglyph
Engraved in ancient monolith
Queen of Egypt, Nefertiti
Unsigned of complacent treaty
Few possessed her fervor, grace or celebrated beauty
Even less dared question place or duty to the crown
So regal was her majesty
So great was her renown
So eloquent in amnesty
No teardrops stained the ground
Custodian to every grain of sand that time and space endowed
Not a single sullen face in crowd

 

Born of sun god
Wed to moon
She shed each tear in blessèd rune
Her lover’s death had left her blind
Her left eye dressed the crest of blight
Her vesture wept the day she died
Requested that, in time, she reawaken
Preserved within sarcophagus in perfumed linen shroud
Custodian to every grain of sand her grace endowed
So infinite her majesty
So elegant her crown
That not a solitary teardrop ever stain the ground

 

Eyes of the heretic
Elegant visage
Steadfast to her heritage
Of dedicated heart
The great queen of an infantry great many thousand large
To once again bid elevate predestinated charge
Her name was framed in hieroglyph
Engraved in ancient monolith
Queen of Egypt, Nefertiti
Soon to be redeemed to lead great march
Black lace threaded through the braid of ever treasured psalm
