Apep serpent uncoiling, enemy of
Ma'at. Dark incarnate and lord of
chaos. Sun-hating reptile, world
encircler, menace lurking
'neath horizon's rim. Choking
the waters with its body unending,
god-barque pursuing with malicious
intent. Stalking its prey beyond all
gates of earth, consuming it always
whether living or dead, wanting
forever unreachable Ra. Father of
storms and cause of quakes, more
venerated than deities most, for in
banishing rites it was worshiped
against. Unseen during
day she lives during night, wanting
return of isfet forever, all kingdoms
lain low and civilizations destroyed!
Undying serpent shall conquer at last, for
the sun is eclipsed by the moon
