To The Sphinx

Who are you? Asked the riddler:
Gatekeeper to another world

I am a Knight of great valour
I killed and slayed without remorse
I conquered patches of Earth
And fashioned a kingdom.

But in the end
A younger me
Did usurp my role.

Who are you? Asked the riddler:
Gatekeeper to another world

I am a thief and a master of deceit
I tricked and turned and groveled at feet
I grew a fortune that
Wanted men keep.

My son did learn from me
And threw me overboard.

Who are you? Asked the riddler:
Gatekeeper to another world

I am the one with a heart of gold
It took me everywhere without much force.
I did not win
I only grew old

Yet in the end I still have this
Heart of gold.

@ess dee: that's what happens when you post lyrics without linking to the source: people start assuming you do it all the time. i half-thought so too, till i read your comment.
