    dotsSonnet - The Sovereign That Retained Ever Afterdots
    -------------------------------------------


    One could see the sovereign in splendor;
    Glory - gave the people a story; Song
    A rift formed - sweeping cyclone of fervor;
    Banners burned - the people had become strong.

    Pillars collapsed; He stood amongst rubble
    undaunted - he remained stoic beneath.
    The vindictive mob smashed his crown -- cudgel.
    Despite screams - a child bestowed his wreath.

    The child was beaten with his master.
    His action had no cry of contrition,
    sovereign that retained ever after.
    Last grace - Hoping his words gained fruition.

    "Gnothi se auton" - Know thyself; see
    how he unites the pieces, set him free...

      Strife in a personal manner. I think that all of us identify as a sovereign in some respects as perhaps we feel that each of us remain at the center of our own personal universe come what may. At least that's the perspective we are given. Somewhat sad, particularly to engage a child (whom we also identify with) into a harsh setting so we invoke even more empathy into the unfairness. Know thyself is perfect. The image of banners burning is a strong and historically oft used one.
