A haiku written by Lee Sonogan
“If I say that my somewhat extravagant imagination yielded simultaneous pictures of an octopus, a dragon, and a human caricature, I shall not be unfaithful to the spirit of the thing. A pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque and scaly body with rudimentary wings; but it was the general outline of the whole which made it most shockingly frightful. Behind the figure was a vague suggestions of a Cyclopean architectural background.”
A metaphorical fiend,
Prone with transiency!
“Ah, I cast indeed my net into their sea, and meant to catch good fish; but always did I draw up the head of some ancient God.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra
