Have you seen the Yellow Sign..? 

Let’s speak a spell of Jezebel,

Who tripped o’er herself and fell straight into Hell.

She was beguiled by a Raven, mislead by a Beast,

She dallied with Darklords, saw the Torturer’s pact,

All the while her poor sanity was under attack!

For Apotheosis is by default divine,

And one cannot un-see the Yellow Sign.
