Oracle of Delphi

Oracle of Delphi: Not a Goddess but an Oracle nevertheless

Cold vapour emit from the fissure,
they call this the navle of the earth
Vague figures swirling in the haze.
You speak enigmatic words to all who come to hear,
ecstatic prophecies spoken in a daze
and recorded by the priests as the revelations of Appolo.

What a life you lead... envied by many
but feared by most,
a permanent high,
a long drawn orgiastic trip that no one can endure for long.
Soon your replacement will be at her post...
