A Lost-Found Fable of Posea, the 'Northern Aesop'

The king of a certain ecotopian kingdom once built himself a magnificent, state-of-the-art straw-bale palace.

Visitors from all over the world flocked to see the king and his masterpiece of eco-sensitive, sustainable architecture. As was the custom at the time, each foreign dignitary presented the king with the gift of a new throne, beautifully-wrought in the most precious materials.

Now, a king needs only so many thrones, so he stored the unused ones in the attic of the palace. In time, the weight of the accumulated thrones outbore the carrying capacity of the palace's straw-bale construction.

One day, while the king was holding court, the building collapsed, and the king and his entire entourage were killed.


People who live in grass houses shouldn't stow thrones.

Poet, scholar and storyteller Steven Posch was raised in the hardwood forests of western Pennsylvania by white-tailed deer. (That's the story, anyway.) He emigrated to Paganistan in 1979 and by sheer dint of personality has become one of Lake Country's foremost men-in-black. He is current keeper of the Minnesota Ooser.
