The Ancient Modern

Heir of Prophecies, Part I  /  Joshua Alan Sturgill         

the Sphinx of Nihilism strips
the road from beneath you

You may not proceed
           You may not retreat

You must answer her question-
that-is-not-a-question:

           Necessity is Meaningless

Foolish or profound,
your answer is accepted. Then

           you are devoured
