A terrible Chinese Accident caused by Hybris

 

A chinese emperor quiet young

was locked up in his golden place

Although the palace was real big

he wanted un-limited space

 

so in the middle of the night

when everyone was sound asleep

his servants took the horses out

without a sound, their breath to keep

 

The desert  where there is no end

was entered when the night was gone

he ordered servants do as planned

spread the red carpet in the sand

 

For his first time he wants a ride

with royalty, and seen  by all

covered in gold, that was his pride

his selfesteem was high and tall

 

But than the horse into the front

did shouted out of fright

he stumbled over the red rug

and made them all collide

 

The emperor of the dynasty

did not know of predestiny

when man claims too much fame

his vanity becomes his shame
