A Poem A Day

I found a new Site through Nessa (one of my Blog readers. It is A Poem A Day. I am going to use it to try and write more poetry. It goes here since this is my poetry blog and I have been neglecting poetry. First Prompt is:
For today's prompt, I want you to write a poem about a landmark. It can be a famous landmark (like Mount Rushmore or the Sphinx) or a little more subdued (like the town water tower or an interesting sign).


Trip to Egypt
Rode a camel and went inside
Khufu's Pyramid.
Dark and dim.
It should be damp but this is Egypt
(Nothing is damp here except the Nile)
Narrow corridor angling up
They call it the Grand Gallery but there are no pictures on the walls.
Now - inside the King's Chamber
An empty sarcophagus.
It seems there should be a sign:
Napoleon Slept Here!

Very nice, Jay. The last line was funny and I like the shape of it.
