“I shall (adv) do it,, O (adj) Pharoah!” (verb in past tense) the scribe. And off he went, (verb with -ing).

He wrote of (adj)(adv) floods, a (synonym for evil) serpent, one (synonym for good) man, and a (synonym for bad) battle. The (adj) hero of the poem was none other than the (adj) pharoah himself.
