Isis and Orisis,
brother and sister
with the same mother,
married to each other.

Isis would be
her own children’s aunt
and Osiris an uncle to them.

The children, though sisters and brothers,
would be cousins, too, to each other.

Auntie Mum and Uncle Dad
in our society would be considered bad
and against the law.

But was this a flaw
in THEIR time?
