When Dead do Walk is a popular poem in the Old Kingdom, which advises on the ways to avoid the Dead.

When the Dead do walk, seek water’s run,

For this the Dead will always shun.

Swift river’s best or broadest lake

To ward the Dead and haven make.

If water fails thee, fire’s thy friend;

If neither guards, it will be thy end.
