He lay upon his bed an aged man, his head set upon a truthful pillow filled with down, one given to minds who seek rest after meeting life.

His poverty was only known in comparison to the existence of a king, and as he breathed his last breath, he understood that all are equal, the treasure found there within the weight of the soul.

And with a smile upon his lips, a pauper passed.
