Sphinx - Poem by Kojo Owusu
Half sunk in a sandy quagmire
Hollow eyed demented maniac
Deluge on the stony body, bathed,
Washed, enshrouded in a gloomy
Haze of a desiccated land.
Imposing, haughty, strong
Survivor of Noah’s flood
Dry harmmattan winds, desert howls
Of throbbing, palpitating particles,
Yet unsurpassed in the ancient
Down for all to gape at.
Prominent, stupendous, amazing
In the eyes of Herodotus
Gone are they, the wonders
The man lion remains.
