something i wrote a year ago and can't seem to get out of my head, it came to me in a history class when a teacher said that all the sphinx's were built facing east, toward the rising sun.

Great sphinx upon the desert floor

what is it you are waiting for

for the sun to never rise

or darkest night to hide the sky

great sphinx upon the desert floor

who must keep watch forever more

may is sit with you awhile

and watch too by the loving nile?
