This is evident from stanza four where he states ‘…and I barely sense my body’. The boy dismisses any other source that can heal his sickness. He says ‘Should the master physician come to me their medicine could not ease my healthy". . The poem ‘seven whole days’ is an art done during the ancient Egyptian period.
