Scapegoat

’tis better to carry the sins of men than to live by the rules of their lords. ’tis better to pick the dry, bitter flowerets of the desert than to feast on the dead foods of mankind. ’tis better to die an unfettered spirit than to linger an entombed soul.
Your cousin Aries was placed first in the stars, you only reaped Jehovah’s spite. Yet, an earthy god took you in his embrace, and the pastures of Arcadia are your reward at last, with wine, laughter, and the rondes of the shepherd boys.
