The princess has not recovered me. She has left me to die on the pavement outside the doors of her palace. King of Sheep I will remain. It was absurd to think that I could compete with a whole town full of people who are infatuated by their darling Miranda.
She says what pleases them, and that is all she will ever say.
Death, release me from this flock of sheep whose princess is one of the same!
