Looking through the space for Hermes –
Author of a timeless vision –
King Osiris clicks his fingers,
Summons then a great revision.
‘‘Thoth the Ancient – Time Atomic –
Step beyond the cloak of Hades.
You have made a greater promise;
Once, upon a time, you made it.
Show me now the emerald shining
Deep within your mind, the word press.
Show my wife the sacred Ibis,
Let us all forgive. Today’s blessed.”
Hermes gives himself a second
And a third, so time is taken –
Rather than make haste, unreckoned –
Pauses while the epochs waken.
When his memory serves him rightly,
Thoth the ancient speaks: “Osiris!
Fare thee well? The bits and pieces
Are as one; she loves thee, Isis.
How might I now be of service?”
Asks the one with dispensation.
“Should I write it as I heard it,
So to speak, unite the nations?”
King Osiris, King of Egypt,
Smiles at this and kisses Isis.
“See, my love, he’ll keep the remit,
Make our endless story timeless!’
Thoth, now, phrase the hidden secrets –
Thoth the priest, the Master builder –
Write the way.” The sun-mind keeper,
Brings to light what Earth held deeper.
