The Sphinx by John (“Jake”) Cosmos Aller

In a world full of change
Change, turbulence, storms

Rivers rushing down down down
To the river sphinx

Between the towering cliffs of madness
Storm of storms, storms of thought

Storming, steaming storms of changes
Storms of changes

In one’s mind
Soulless faceless minds

Fill the fearful ears of change
Of madness changes

The eyes see
Bats

Maggots crawling around one’s mind
And sucking the soul away

Flying thought the nightly storms
The dreams of the sphinx
