As the Emperor Marched Out onto the Streets, Butt-Naked

As the emperor marched out onto the streets, butt-naked, in his “brand new” outfit, he tried hard, to ignore, the chills, he told himself, that so long as I think of warmth, imagine myself in the tropics, I’ll be, okay, well, visualizations worked, for only just, a little while, before the freezing cold started, taking over all right.

As the emperor marched out onto the streets butt-naked, he realized, how hard his people has had it, and that, was a true wake-up call for the emperor.  So, after his return, he’d started, thinking about, making his people’s lives easier…

As the emperor marched out onto the streets, butt-naked, he’d gained his humanity back, and, after his return to his own palace, living his originally, set life, filled with everything he’d wanted and more, he’d become, more considerate, of his people’s needs.  He’d lessen the taxes on them, and, stopped, throwing his money away, on making his new clothes.

As the emperor marched out onto the streets, he felt, that cold chill, something he’d needed, desperately, to gain his humanity back, and, after living amongst his people, saw the hardships they’d gone through in their lives, he’d, become, more, empathetic, and, he was able, to rule, on behalf of his people’s wellbeing, until he’d passed on…

And, it took, for the emperor, to get embarrassed, made a fool of himself, to finally, get HIS humanity back once more.
