Hora, the Black Heart

Hora, the Black Heart

A Chapter by Anne Martin
"

Prologue to Chapter 2 of The Cult of Hahn

"

[1] The w***e perverts all things.
What she thinks is love is mere folly,
A folly she passes on to boys that catch her eye.


[2] Hora is the bane of man,
Thief of the soul,
Reaper of the weak.


[3] Naively, she plucks Cyrus’ son
from the pyres, and ruins him "
ruined like all men born of woman.


[4] Hora is the fall of man,
The evil temptress,
The black heart of womanhood.


[5] Blinded, the son of Cyrus is enslaved,
Lost in her false beauty and wicked heart.
He will serve her until the end of time.


[6] Hora is the seed of fancy,
Stealer of sanity,
Phony redeemer of her sex.


From The Book of Cyrus, Songs of the Tioch, ch. 1, verses 1-6
