Favorite Quote:
"The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep." -Robert Frost


High King of a country
Commander of an army
An average butcher
A beggar in an alley
The King holds wealth and wisdom
The General, power and might
The butcher his shop
And the beggar, his strife
The force that ties them together lies in their loss of life
Castles crumble
Soldiers are slain
Meat goes sour
The end of pain
All men are not created equally
They do not live the same
Some are gifted with power
Others cursed with shame
They live their life, bad or good
But in the end they are united
In eternal brotherhood


The author's comments:
This poem is about how regardless of how you lived everyone is of equal rank when they die. (This concept is actually easily refuted, and I myself actually find fault with it but hey, let's just enjoy the poem. Lemme know what you think?)
