"Outside the ordered universe is that amorphous blight of nethermost confusion which blasphemes and bubbles at the center of all infinity—the boundless daemon sultan Azathoth, whose name no lips dare speak aloud, and who gnaws hungrily in inconceivable, unlighted chambers beyond time and space amidst the muffled, maddening beating of vile drums and the thin monotonous whine of accursed flutes.""At the seething and fiery centerHe sits upon his ebon throneWithin his halls of darknessWhich no man has seen and survived the visionBoth blind and bereft of mindHe pipes unceasingly on his reed fluteAnd the notes that rise and fall in measured patternsAre the foundations of all the worldsEver calculating in sound the structure of space and timeWere his flute ever to suddenly fall silentAll the spheres would shatter into one anotherAnd the myriads of worldsWould be unmadeAs they were before creationThe flute of the blind idiotBoth makes and unmakes the worlds in ceaselessCombinationsSpinning on the woven carpet of timeNo creation without destructionNo destruction without creationTo unmake a thing is to make anotherEach time a thing is madeAnother is destroyedThe idiot god on his black throneDoes not chooseWhat shall rise into beingAnd what should pass awayHe cares only to maintainHis mindless unholy music ofRandom creation and destructionNo living creature can look upon his faceAnd endure its terrible heatAnd black radianceThat is like the reverberating unseen rays of molten ironWhich strike and burn the skinOf those who would dareGaze into the countenance of the idiot godNever does he receive supplicantsIn his black halls of uncouth angles and strange doorsNor does he ever hear prayers or answer themEndlessly he pipesAnd endlessly he devours his own substanceFor his hunger is insatiableAs he consumes his own wastes after the custom of idiotsAs the god createsSo he destroys"
