She gave me funny looks – revisited and extended

She gave me funny looks,

crochet hooks,

second-hand books,

and a map of denial.


So, I travelled to Egypt,

by camel, by foot,

where I smiled at the Sphinx,

and called out, ‘Hapsut!’

Out from the pyramid

Out from the pyramid

Out from the pyramid

the mummy came;

with her curse, her crozier,

her unpronounceable name:

Queen Nefertarititiakhenatenamunra…

the Third,

who wished she’d been called Susan,


or Thora…
