Anubis and the Jackal

Evil or Good
The Jackal headed God would decide
Ancient texts of mystical truth
Ancient faith in ancient ways
When a person would die
Anubis would weigh the heart
Of the recent dead sent to him
Would the good outweigh the evil
Would the life be worthy of honor
Or be exiled from the flesh
My heart, so black within
Would be cast out into the desert
And consumed by the jackals
My being eaten in flesh
And my soul cast out to wander
Under the sun
In the shame of my sin
