Your lone power is pathetic. I shall show you true power.

There you await, within your tower

Here you live, upon a desolate rock

There you rule, over a desperate people

 

What a mighty kingdom you have carved for yourself

A man as towering as the mountain he dwells upon

The land kneels below you

Do you feel powerful?

 

Fear – it keeps the wise in line

Greed – it keeps the ambitious in line

Power – it keeps the weak in line

Hierarchy – it keeps everyone beneath you

 

I am no fool, yet I am not afraid

Not of you.  Not of your power

What power can one person wield?

Influence yields greater power than might

Yet influence requires a web

Your web is tangled.  Your web is flimsy

Your lone power is pathetic

 

I shall show you true power

I shall show you what one person can do alone

Take a breath.  Steady your nerves

Ruination is about to begin
