Those are the words with which my father became your god, and his father before him... and his father before him... though there may have been a few more thous and thees - the language was a little more archaic. Anyway, the point is this: it isn't true, I'm afraid. Not any of it. Back when [[HighPriest Clovis]] put the crown on my head, I was really expecting to be transformed into a god, to have all my mortal parts burned away and so forth. I was, honestly. But I feel exactly the same. I thought I felt a twinge of something divine for a moment, but I think it was just indigestion... [[NervousWreck I've been having terrible trouble keeping food down lately]]. So, the ceremony hasn't worked: I'm still just as mortal as the rest of you. I'll still be your emperor if you like, but I expect you don't want one without the other, and I really can't be your god. So... sorry everybody, basically... [[TorchesAndPitchforks a-and I hope you'll find it in your hearts to put me to death as painlessly as possible]].
