(aka Specus Erebi Circumveniunt Lacunis Vermiculatis)
by Robert Paul Gass (aka Imagines Vinco)
The sagging hags in cave of rot with eye
And tooth to eat the souls of captured prey
As hero sets about a quest and traps espy
For god of sea his opal throne to pray.
The Gorgon snakes' behests exfoliate
The warsaw drawn to turn to stone with gaze
Immortal drawing waters' whirl of hate
For men's disgust dissuading baneful maze.
The Erebus in dens to gather shades
Befogs the sight of mortals' hated souls
And purple the light of amethyst spades
As worming bottomless apex the holes.
As Gorgons venture hags to never leave
And worming holes of Erebus deceive.
