    The Key of Joy is disobedience! Well, it's definitely more fun to be bad! ! ! ! I shall remember this line forever now.

    Crowley's compositions are always impecceble... Wisely pre-meditated. This counts as one of my favourites, ALL HAIL LUCIFER (Report) Reply

    In my opinion, this together with 'Hymn to Pan' are the best poems by thy best poet - Aleister Crowley. Can't believe that the last comment on his brilliancy was 2 years ago...

    And I also have the whole poem written on the beginning page of my notebook, beneath the unicursal hexagram and the line 'The Key of Joy is disobedience' with darker shrift. (Report) Reply
