    Wonderful! And an intriguing reversal of roles.

    Thank you Alan for your comment. I always enjoy reading your wonderful haiku.

    Your haiku also reminds me of a fabulous Kahlil Gibran short story where the overlord is ignored by people person by person until everyone ignores him and his ruthless and lazy manner.
