"You are the Great Cat, the avenger of the gods, and the judge of words, and the president of the sovereign chiefs and the governor of the holy Circle; you are indeed the Great Cat."
an inscription in the Valley of the Kings

When I walked into your city
and freed your barns of mice,
I never expected you
to build me temples
or mummify my children.
The mice tasted good
and afterwards
my belly was full.
That's  all.
