Magpie Inspiration 85

And so, young ones beware!

For, this is what happens when a sphinx
learns not its lessons!

REMEMBER, IT’S:
“Rise FROM your ashes.”

NOT:
“Rise FORM your ashes.”

Read page eleven, that’s where it’s written!

    I was like what? sphinx? Then the image finally loaded!

    I would like

    “Rise form your ashes”

    then maybe….

    form something… but then youre forming something anyway … so you are right!

      The narrator’s voice is that of the young sphinxes’ professor.
      It’s to them that the page eleven indication is given πŸ˜‰
