Tribute To H.P. Lovecraft

Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!

"In His House at R'lyeh, Dead Cthulhu waits dreaming,
yet He shall rise and His kingdom shall cover the Earth!"

Tribute to H.P. Lovecraft

Out beyond the confines of physical space itself
At the very heart of a much darker universe than ours
Sits the supratemporal Court of Azathoth — Nucleus of Chaos.

From there proceeded to this sphere, timeless outer gods.
Not deities in the usual sense, but rather destructive Dæmon,
Who bathed in the torrid luminescence of primordial galaxies
Long before human prehistory.

Reputedly, Azathoth's own envoy edified the earliest pyramids:
Known to us as the Black Pharaoh: Nyarlathotep.
Through him we learned of that other dread Lord, Cthulhu.

Lying in eldritch slumber among the ruins of his submerged city;
R'lyeh rests deep in the sea waiting for malign astros to align.

Soon Dagon shall roam the land as he now roams marine trenches
Alongside the she-goat Shub-Niggurath and her thousand vile offspring.

Only then will mankind recognize its utter insignificance amid such cosmic competition...
Our futile vanity outmeasured against powers which would be better left unknown!

Image: 'Black Pharaoh' Nyarlathotep from Fall of Cthulhu. AKA The Crawling Chaos, since he is considered an extension of Azathoth (aforementioned).
