The Pyramid of Khafre and the Great Sphinx of Giza on the Giza Plateau, Cairo, Egypt.. Deutsch: Die Große Sphinx von Gizeh vor der Chephren-Pyramide, der mittleren der Pyramiden von Gizeh am westlichen Rand des Niltals. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Pyramid rising
The Sphinx turns
Its grave and stony head
A hydra snarls
Three heads gyrating
See former enemies
Breaking bread

One eye is watching
Osiris’ son
Flies across this inky night
And some trickery
And darker magic
Fools us with illumined light

Down the centuries
Ancient gods
War with angels
For their throne
And the soul
In search of learning
Weaves the path afraid,
And alone
