"Ozymandias" is often read as a warning on the hubris of desiring immortality but it should be read as being about how good Ozy's workers were at making durable pedestals
@aparrish It’s still morning and I’ve already seen the word “plinth“!
@aparrish [furiously sinking all my science points into plinth durability research, engraving, and irony]
@aparrish Spend less on plinth durability research
@aparrish Some day my plinth will come
@aparrish *slaps roof of plinth* You can inscribe so many letters on this baby.
@aparrish Hemira the stonecutter slaps the top of the pedestal
"this bad boy" she says "can hold aeons"
@aparrish its durability was a part of his prognostication, for as ozzy sang, "i am iron man"
@aparrish they should have built the entire empire out of the pedestal material
@aparrish i mean it was written in support of revolution as an "every tyrant dies" parable iirc
@aparrish the rest of statues tho not that much
@aparrish Frankly, the trunk-building team did not bring their A game.
