A black obelisk
Marked with weird hieroglyphs,
A tribute to evil.

A black obelisk
Marked with weird hieroglyphs,
A tribute to evil.

Ancient stone monument
Used by lost cultures,
To worship evil gods?

Night black marble
Weighing hundreds of tonnes,
Making up this artefact.

Carven by Aztecs?
Perhaps by ancient aliens?
No-one is quite sure.

Held by the locals
To contain great magic,
Neither good nor evil.

Many millennia old
Chiselled aeons ago,
No-one can say when.

Good magic rituals
Are performed around it,
By shaman by day.

Black magic rites
Are performed in dead of night,
Around the obelisk.

Black shining marble
Appearing almost alive,
In the broad sunlight.
