His vision seemed struggling
To leave the fleshy flaps,
Aiming epic destination beyond
The gloomy dusk of generations.
Having known and forgotten
Everything around, within
And beyond his intellect,
The scepter duly slipped off.
Hercules dared not to trace,
Neither Oracle whispered the fate,
Nor could Socrates define,
Only caused foreheads to bleed.
The wand glorious might have found
It's eternal abode in depth infinite.
