283. pyramids (blocks of) stacked tip to top, they

pyramids (blocks of) stacked tip to top, they
don’t make no mortar (at least it’s worn off),
if introduced to a pressure in fluid
starts to seep out or explode into ruin

toads aren’t water (they’re mostly), but chop them
find (you’ll) INSIDE enough that is solid —
too many, too tight, too squeezed on a slide, they’ll
spontaneously self-re-assemble inside it

ptolemy III HAD HE CONSEQUENCES SEEN (OF)
surely have given the plague of frogs breathe,
berth, i mean wide, he’d have taken to flight,
and sought out in syria political asylum

toads under pressure (i don’t know the measure,
barometric of something, the bar isn’t level)
were suddenly streaming blocks in between, and
fell into soil, contaminating it

enough (in the millions) sudden, the shift is
patterns cloud combined up-drafts (with) crickets
(DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME, KEEP AWAY FROM THE SMOKE)
produced in it poisonous toad tornadoes

egypt (BC in, not modern, i’m speaking (of))
was not that prepared for weather this evil —
houses were flat, made of brambles and mats,
and most of them hadn’t been stapled down (fashioned)

it doesn’t have warnings, the tech was quite poor to
sniff out incoming toad/cricket storms, the
people were small (tiny), terribly awkward,
couldn’t for trees the storm shelters install

disaster, disease (not immediately,
but soon after once all the toads had released (been)) —
sudden increases of chemicals eating
(acid) had killed but the solid built freaks

the lifters had loaded ptolemy hoping
to take him to karnak (or someplace less smokey),
overcome (but, they) couldn’t the pyramid cover,
fell on the spot in amphibians bloody
