[ti_audio media=”183″] The Pentagram – Aleister Crowley
[Dedicated to George Raffalovich]

In the Years of the Primal Course, in the dawn of terrestrial
birth,
Man mastered the mammoth and horse, and Man was the
Lord of the Earth.

He made him an hollow skin from the heart of an holy tree,
He compassed the earth therien, and Man was the Lord of
the Sea.

He controlled the vigour of steam, he harnessed the light-
ning for hire;
He drove the celestial team, and man was the Lord of the
Fire.

Deep-mouthed from their thrones deep-seated, the choirs
of the ├Žeons declare
The last of the demons defeated, for Man is the Lord of
the Air.

Arise, O Man, in thy strength! the kingdom is thine to
inherit,
Till the high gods witness at length that Man is the Lord
of his spirit.

    what a fantastic find.
    careful with it though.
    Crowley was like a toddler with a machine gun……

    Rhetorical?

    amid one sees light and dark as one,
    beginning or end,
    perplexed,
    babe gazes and asks.

    dark film round bout,
    uncertain,
    eye upon thine grounded truth,
    only divine.

    whom can be of divine?
    scratch thine arm,
    oh starvin child,
    fiddle hand within hand,
    clap, clap, clap.

    Moon aglow,
    upon a witches brow,
    as she wanes,
    light is lighter.

    Maiden now,
    truths nature is shewn,
    await the crone,
    wisdom within.

    Upon her flower,
    thine stem is rooted,
    ever deep,
    an angels hand cannot weep,
    cry, cry, cry evermore.

    Atop the mountain,
    below seven inverted cross,
    which to choose?
    wisely suppose.

    Can one truly hear silence of thine ear?

    93.
