( An OOC note: Some of the writing within this thread will not be mine; this will be a collection of famous lines from authors and poets of ancient Greece and Rome, while also having my own writing where my stories are concerned. I take no credit for those that I quote. )

Hesiod, Theogony 265 (Greek epic C8th or C7th B.C.) :

"Now Thaumas married a daughter of deep-running Okeanos, Elektra, and she bore him swift-footed Iris, the rainbow, and the Harpyiai of the lovely hair, Okypete and Aello, and these two in the speed of their wings keep pace with the blowing winds, or birds in flight, as they soar and swoop, high aloft."

Wicked things made of ash. They circle as vultures above my beloved family. Searching for the weak amid the strong; we are all strong here as we dump the frail abominations from our women's wombs to pits filled with infant bones. I've seen them perch, long of talon and thin of limb, a top the crest of where we throw our unwanted spawn, picking their sharp toothed teeth and bleeding gums.

I have witnessed them eat the stars during dusk. Where they hoard their collection of light in the abyss of their eyes. Sallow-yellow, sickly-yellow; eyes of wretched beasts spit up from Echidna's fat belly.

Circling demons of twilight who vomit the remains of our children at our doorsteps; I curse thee!


Croesus of Delphi
( My own writing. )

"if there is a light then i am going to
swallow it. if there is a god then
i’m going to make him cry."

— s. osborn, from “blasphemies at the 5th street station,”
