I trot along till I reach

the palace gates

I ask the guards for help

they lift the baskets

from my head

and help me rearrange them

I will put the middle basket

on top

and Pharaoh won't notice

but the bread

in the middle basket

is mouldy

green and black fur

grows over it

it stinks


I look in the third basket

it is filled with bread alright

but the bread

is hard and dry enough

to break the teeth

of Pharaoh

the guards help me

empty the baskets

and I walk

into Pharaoh's throne room
