The aincent god Amen Ra returns from deep space to strike against man.
The curtain of night,
Ripped asunder by fire and light,
The God of Ra descends from the heavens,
Nations tremble and man goes to his knees.

The light,
Burning light,
Shining fire,
Is the herald of war across the heavens,
No star nor mote of dust untouched by the mad god.

Eyes rest on the cities and towns,
It’s time to return to the old ways,
Days of magic and fire and blood,
Nights hidden,
Shrouded in darkness.

Heads bowed,
A prayer goes up for mercy,
Oh, God of Ra spare us,
Amen, amen,
Amen Ra.

I thought this was incredibly good, whether it's accurate or not. What are the tales of the egyptian gods and goddesses, if not made up stories? Most can't prove that they were true. For all we know, your poem is accurate, the one to comment before is just ignorant.

The flow was perfect, in such an imperfect way.
I wish my poems would turn out that nicely, but unfortunately, I am not skilled enough yet I don't think.

Keep writing :D

Thanks for you comments Mr. Egyptologist. Maybe you are half right and maybe the other half of your comment contradicts itself. Oh, yeah the Egyptian Gods were also not from outer space...hummm. Sometimes things are written just for effect and are not supposed to be totally accurate, as people often expect critical comments to be, so better luck next time.

Intersting poem but the ancient Egyptian gods were not worshipped with fire and blood but rather with incense and flowers. The Greek word 'amen', which means 'let it be' has nothing to do with the Egyptian name Amun or Amen - 'the hidden one'.
