The Man Who Would Be King [Jul. 28th, 2004|10:15 am]
Tony Grist
We talk about it as though the important things were Iraq and the economy and things like that, but really it's about Kingship

It's tribal/feudal/religious.

Is he acceptable to God?
Is he beautiful enough?
Are the omens right?

Because if we anoint the wrong man, judgement and chaos will ensue.

You're 100% right, the conventions only prove that with their creeping similarity to high mass.

And BTW, do you use any instant messaging?

Instant messaging? Um no. I'm afraid I've never figured out how it works.

Ah, 'kay. Was wondering. You seemed interesting and are up at some of the odd times I am. Though I suspect they may be normal times in your time zone.

There's a six, seven hour difference I think. It's 11.51 in the morning here in England....

Or 5:51, I haven't used this computer since I was in CO and damned if it isn't still set back an hour.

Re: Funny

Exactly. Having a soul doesn't make us human beings any pleasanter to be around- rather the reverse.

Here's a poem you may know. I forget who wrote it...

I wish I loved the human race,
I wish I loved its silly face,
And when I'm introduced to one
I wish I thought, "what jolly fun."
