Rite of Pharmakos ~ revisited

The Solemn Sacrifice of Mystic Rite

The custom of the ancients in The Time of great peril,

the rulers of the city state would demand through out the land

a living ransom-

the only acceptable tribute to the host of oppressive daemons-

to give up the most beloved of their children in Mystic Rite.

The ultimate sacrifice-

to survive their common ruin.


Kronos Stasis

-end of cycle of-

darkness cold sadness,

death and misfortune,

isolation and fear.

Free your slaves to time,

loose control to their harvest,

silence to your demands for the sacrifice of our beloved children.

"It was a custom of the ancients in great crises of danger for the rulers of a city or nation,

in order to avert the common ruin,

to give up the most beloved of their children for sacrifice as a ransom to the avenging daemons;

and those who were thus given up were sacrificed with mystic rites."
