of sacred relics are now
Ducat and your character on it.
Carry it wherever they want,
and provide for a kilo of fruit.
your climb and you fall.
the darkening of sacred relics
before the golden ruler.
Finiteness of life
you can not change
neither reign on religion.
A flash of life
in the eyes of those disappearing.
This roulette you have not got.
