Tombs and judgements

after building
the ziggurat
the king priest

then some
bright spark
had the idea
of building the ziggurat
over the dead body
of the king priest
and invented
the pyramid

the pyramid
is nothing
But a tomb
That says to God
Here is a great
King priest

But the pyramid
Decayed a little
Filled with sand
Was robbed
Of its grave goods

If he is so good
It might be said
Let him save himself

It’s better for a king
To be buried
In an unmarked grave
Than a golden sepulchre
