You know what I really, really, really hate but have to live with? The little lady seated on a very high position in a country...no, not a country, in a kingdom! She's the empress of that little kingdom that has little villages scattered in small islands. Some of those little villages actually clump up to form three big tribes of the kingdom. The smallest of those tribes is actually the poorest, and is said to be the most dangerous. Recently, a very popular pretty lady who lived in the biggest tribe went there on a quest, she ended up getting kidnapped but was ransomed back (thank God!).
This little lady is very good at being an empress. She smiles alot... or maybe we think she smiles alot because her teeth seem to always peep between her lips; She goes and visit other kingdoms to keep a good friendship with them. Just recently, she visited this really big guy with big ears who ruled a really big country. I bet that trip cost a lot, enough to feed a starving hamlet... it's not like that really big guy would send griffons to attack her little empire if she didn't visit him. For all he cared, little empress' kingdom was too insignificant for him to mind if she visited or not.
Little empress is also very good at keeping the peace in her little kingdom. You know what she does? She tapes the mouth of whoever spoke to loudly in her kingdom, she tapes the mouth with cursed bubble gum tapes! Whoever disturbed the quiet was sure to be silenced. When her subjects could not keep quiet even though they were given bubble gum tapes, she sends an angel.
Yes, an angel. You know the story of the 10 Plagues in the Bible? The 10th Plague was an angel. The angel swooped down on all homes that did not bear a blood mark on their doors. That's the kind of angel the little empress sends. The angel visits the outspoken subjects...then they are never seen again, forever silenced for being stubborn.
Little empress does a good job at keeping the peace doesn't she? She also does a good job at keeping her subjects happy, or keeping her favorite subjects happy to be more precise. She lets them in her kingdom to help her in her tasks because that's how her friends are, they like to help a lot. They especially like to help themselves with good heaping servings from the kingdom's banquet. They stuff themselves full then throw the leftovers to the little insignificant people.
Did I mention that most of her subjects were little insignificant people? I guess not, they don't really matter anyway. At least not to her or her friends. It didn't even matter to her when they squealed for a small patch of land to plant their vegetables and their rice. She cared more about the more significant subjects who give her gifts for Christmas.
I really, really hate that little lady. But I have to live with her because I'm one of her insignificant subjects. My fellow insignificant subjects believe that someone else should rule us. Someone better. Someone who actually says honest words. They don't really have to be sweet words, just honest. But who's worthy to take her crown?
