  • Mimes, in the form of God on high,
    Mutter and mumble low,
    And hither and thither fly;
    Mere puppets they, who come and go
    At bidding of vast formless things
    That shift the scenery to and fro,
    Flapping from out their condor wings
    Invisible Woe.

    - Edgar A. Poe, 'The Conqueror Worm'.
