Devil May Care

The clock struck midnight;
You waited too long to leave,
and overstayed your welcome.

You’re now in my yard,
To greet the trick or treaters,
Oh, my little pumpkin.

Rules were laid out,
To go before 12 o’clock,
Or you become my jack-o’-lantern.

Yet you laughed,
Told me to chill,
Now your turn to be still.

Exploring Egypt: Nile River

5th of a series on my 7-day stay in Egypt

 An overnight trip,
Sailing in a felucca,
Eat, sleep, do nothing.

 A Nubian crew,
Steering, cooking, and cleaning,
Took us down the Nile.

 

Next day:
Luxor

To see the beginning:
1st day: Old Cairo
2nd day: Giza/Cairo
3rd day: Aswan
4th day: Abu Simbel
