The Emperor

The Emperor
Authority, structure, control, fatherhood

The line moves slowly.  Each person steps forward at the same time in lockstep, calm and expressionless as they take part in the procession.  They come from all walks of life, each with a different background and personal story to tell.  Some are among the wealthiest in the world, while others live in poverty.  All races, sexes, and creeds are represented.  At this moment, in this line, all are equal.

The great beast’s maw is open, and it consumes each person as they step inside.  All humans are equal, and all taste the same.
