The value of life

O mighty ruler, pray tell what is the value of mine life to thee? Is it more than the dog thou seem to so adore?
Nay, ’tis not.

Is it perchance more than the stray cat thine child took in and that thou tolerate?
Nay, ’tis not.

Is it maybe more than the ducks that waddle in the pond of thine palace?
Nay, ’tis not.

But surely, mine life hast more value to thee than the ants thou so thoughtlessly trample under thine feet?
Nay, it dost not. Thou art but lesser than insects, mindless in thy obedience and unquestioning in thy devotion, for even insects bite! And now, ’tis thine turn. Thou shalt tell us of thine valuation of our life.
Thou art the most magnanimous of rulers that ever graceth this green earth with their presence, the source of all that is good and just and the only ruler in this time to rule with a conscience.
