Music:crown me king- sweeny todd barber shop quartet
from a great height.
there were three faces upon the king in those days; one of an angry aspect, one of a benevolent aspect, & one of an alien aspect. the first face a kind ruler would turn against the foes of the kingdom, while a tyrant might turn its gaze against the citizenry. the second face was a face of diplomacy & charity; it was the most beloved of the three faces. the third face, twisted into a mockery of human features, was worn when the king interceeded with the gods. oh what gods were there then, that the king must come before them wearing that monstrous visage? well here is a fucking hint. every angel sent after the fall of the kings of men said "fear not" as the first thing out of their mouth. except, you know. when it was indeed time to fear. fear, oh egypt, where the last true kings reigned.
