Adorned with horns of Luxor steel,
They move in herds, speaking human tongue
Kings and servants alike must kneel!

Festivities butter-wool, emerald, teal
Infinite sheep graze under the sun
Adorned with horns of Luxor steel

The will of the people - Agamemnon’s wheel
Chanting softened song through heightened lungs
Kings and servants alike must kneel!

Is bullheadedness what they truly feel
as natural fountains replace the city pumps
adorned with horns of Luxor steel

If a man is gored, there is time to heal
When each is full of blood, and drunk
Kings and servants alike must kneel!

Rams may rule, though they lack appeal
Sacred scrolls describe humans they hunt
adorned with horns of Luxor steel
Kings and servants alike must kneel!
