He Was Nobody (Day 150)

 

Disdaining trophies, 
lacking 
medals, and craving
widespread acclaim, 
he was 
nobody, famed 
for creating 
an unanticipated future
The Golden Era 
drew to a close 
as he picked up his iron 
scepter. And yet, 
he was locked 
in place, denied 
a ride in 
the golden carriage.
He found himself 
disgraced, unable 
to face 
his curious tribe, 
and—after the stars
had realigned—
was sentenced to live 
as he prescribed.
