The Man Carter

“Gold, everywhere, the glint of gold…”

In those dark caverns of old,

Saw the man, Carter –

Beyond time and farther…


Shadows reveal dark glistening eyes,

Of King Tut’s masked demise,

Amidst chariots and splendour,tutt

Lay the boy, once the Nile’s defender.


Warm wisps of invisible fumes,

As the uncovered old exhumes,

To startle the young souls of new,

Rumours of ancient times pierce through.


And so, the man Carter foresaw,

His mark in history he would draw,

With tales and whispers of treasure,

Of Gods’ and Pharaohs’ ancient pleasure.
