What does this have to do with what I just said?

Had Damocles been Enlightened
he would have laughed at the hanging sword and ordered more
chicken and boys,
living in the Moment, knowing
no difference
between life and death, except that death involves
more floating.

Of course, an Enlightened Master would not admire power the way
Damocles the Flatterer did in the first place.

Without human weakness
there is no Story and life would be a boring dance of white-robed

I like swords.
