Pyramid in underworld

Inebriated I
To demystify and die
Fossilized raptor am I
To heave a terrorized sigh
Decrepit I
To curse and cry
Forlorn I
To live and lie!
What is left for me??
Your promises like Zeus's fickleness-
It's wrought in perfidious innocence
And wrapped in Clytemnestra's infidelity!
Am I to perish?
Because those burn in me
Like midsummer's scorching heat?
Hardly had I believed
Those phonies and deceits
Yet I had to trespass the limit
Since you find a place
For me in Hades's lips!
To unfurl your promises
With venomorous hiss!
I, being your escort
Calmly sealed my lust
Under the vessel of
Your eternal thrust!
The desecration
Made Underworld
Scream in a roll
To redeem the sins
Of the Cursed soul!
They made me Osiris
And you Isis
To build a pyramid
For underworld to inherit!
But, much to the hatred
Of Hades and his accomplice
We obliged to set us apart
From sins that kept us
Quiet and unperturbed!
To face the trial of Socrates!
The Mysterious spirits
Muddled in mesmeric
Chanted the lullaby lyrics
Pyramid, pyramid, pyramid, pyramid
Pyramid, pyramid, pyramid
And let us split
From Underworld's cleavage
By rubbing us against
It's lingering panegyrics!
