  • 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'.
