“There is the house whose people sit in darkness; dust is their food and clay their meat. They are clothed like birds with wings for covering, they see no light, they sit in darkness. I entered the house of dust and I saw the kings of the earth,their crowns put away for ever; rulers and princes, all those who once wore kingly crowns and ruled the world in the days of old.” -from The Epic of Gilgmesh
