Liber 67

<blockquote>
> I flung out of chapel and church\\
> Temple and hall an meeting-room\\
> Venus' Bower and Osiris' Tomb,\\
> and left the devil in the lurch,\\
> While God got lost in the crowd of gods,\\
> And soul went down in the turbid tide\\
> Of the metaphysical Lotus-eyed,\\
> And I was -- anyhow, what's the odds?\\
> [...]\\
> Yet by-and-by I hope to weave\\
> A song of Anti-Christmas Eve\\
> And First- and Second-Beast-er Day.\\
> There's one who loves me dearly (vrai!)\\
> Who yet believes me sprung from Tophet,\\
> Either the Beast or the False Prophet;\\
> And by all sorts of monkey tricks\\
> Adds up my name to Six Six Six.\\
> Retire, good Gallup! In such strife her\\
> Superior skill makes //you// a cipher!\\
> Ho! I adopt the number. Look\\
> At the quaint wrapper of this book!\\
> I will deserve it if I can: It is the number of a Man.
</blockquote>

Aleister Crowley, from “Ascension Day” in The Sword of Song

 

<blockquote>
> I find some folks think me (for one)\\
> So great a fool that I disclaim\\
> Indeed Jehovah's hate for shame\\
> That man to-day should not be weaned\\
> Of worshipping so foul a fiend\\
> In presence of the living Sun,\\
> And yet replace him oiled and clean\\
> By the Egyptian Pantheon,\\
> The same thing by another name.\\
> Thus when of late Egyptian Gods\\
> Evoked ecstatic periods\\
> In verse of mine, you thought I praised\\
> Or worshipped them -- I stand amazed.\\
> I merely wished to chant in verse\\
> Some aspects of the Universe,\\
> Summed up these subtle forces finely,\\
> And sang of them (I think divinely)\\
> In name and form; a fault perhaps --\\
> Reviewers are such funny chaps!\\
> I think that ordinary folk,\\
> Though, understood the things I spoke.\\
> For Gods, and devils too, I find\\
> Are merely modes of my own mind!
