'The Lord of all the Earth is born!'
That is Osiris, and he has sworn,
That he will be a mighty king,
And of his greatness, they still sing.

But he had an enemy, who was no other,
Then Seth, who was his very own brother.

Osiris' life then ceases,
When that traitorous Seth hacks him to pieces.
When his wife hears this, of course she grieves,
And up till now, Isis still believes,

That her husband, the king, will return from the dead,
When his life is avenged, so it is said.

And who better to do this than Horus, his son?
But alas, he still has not yet won.
For Horus and Seth, they still fight,
In the battle between what's wrong and what's right.

But it's confirmed that one day Horus,
Will be the one who is victorious.
And when the key to victory is unfurled,
Then Osiris will be back to rule the world.

The author's comments:
This is an old old Egyptian myth of which there are a thousand versions. I just love retelling old stories and making them contemporary.
