Poem by Cameron Powers: "The Eyes of Egypt are Upon You"

The eyes of Egypt are upon you now...

The ancient valleys of the Nile. of the Tigris and Euphrates...

the Jordan River is calling you now...

it's time to begin the dance

open your arms and your heart

go out into the desert under the starry night

find your Bedouin friends

they've been there for thousands and thousands of years

and they won't desert you now

there's a temple buried under every rock

feel the pulse beating

take the whole world to be your lover

ancient songs are calling you to sing

don't wait any longer

it's time to go

the heart and soul of the universe is ready right now!
