you have wandered upon the rubble
of a minor estate withered amidst the aggregate of the internet.
i burned it down to the ground;
                                                 what will come of its embers?
will a regal phoenix rise up from the ash in fantastic flame,
or will the dust blow afar, never to be heard from again?
