I lay in the water self defeated.  My only onlookers were a few fish nibbling at my threads.

Horace’s pose (floating) is based on E. Prisse d’Avennes drawing of Ramesses II’s Battle Against the Hittites on the Banks of the Orontes (Thebes, Ramesseum, 19th Dynasty) – Atlast of Egyptian Art, American University in Cairo Press, 1997

The fish are based on the Nile fish found in the tomb of Nebamun.
