To Sobek

Sobek glides

Through the Nile River

A silent hunter

Invisible to all

Only yellow eyes visible

Just above the water

The fiercest creature in the Two Lands

No God, nor man, nor animal

Understands fear better then He

Fierce Sobek

Lord of the murky waters

Slayer of demons

Beats back the night

Dark scales glisten

In the bright rays of the sun

Sobek, greatest warrior

Long-toothed Lord

Quick devourer of gazelles

Truly You are Someone I want on my side!
