Sed Festival


Jubilee Year

Fifty years of rule

Pharaoh rose from his throne

Disrobed before the court

Loin cloth and sandals

Double crown

Ruler of two worlds

Upper and lower Egypt

Dynasty One

The court watched

Forming around the large track


At first fast paced

The living god

Horus on earth

Slowed by age

Staggered and fell

Dispatched by warriors

Ninety days later

Embalmed surrounded by vast treasure

Joined Osiris

The young King

Buried his father


His own funeral
