What makes you think you’re better than Thebes
The city protected by Amon,
And, like you, with walls of water?
Armies of nations defended Thebes:
Egypt and her allies,
Ethiopia, Lybia, and Put.
None of that mattered at all.
Invaders captured Thebes,
Smashed babies in the rocks,
And arrested survivors for exile.
Invaders threw dice for the nobles.
Top officials left home in chains.
You in Nineveh get a dose of that, too.
The enemy will shock you
And you’ll stagger like drunks.
Then you’ll run for your lives and hide.
