The Luxury of a Hero

The Luxury of a Hero

A Story by Katherine Enma Pineapple

A poetic story of an antagonist's remorse


The vexing police sirens ringing in my ear

Exasperating clangs of the cuffs in my wrists

Protagonists’ smiling faces are forever my peeves

Twas sadistic Lady Luck for me to grapple these


Shamelessly defeated by dimwits

Left to grovel in a seat beside the authorities

Ne’er to chance upon a happy ending

What a sad, sad life I chose to live


“Scum of the Earth” they say,

Abysmal excuse of a human I am

Yet as I sit, captive of the heroes of humanity

Does garbage like me deserve them fairytale endings?


Now leaning on a cold, stony cell wall

Couldn’t help but let remorseful tears fall

A cold hearted villain, ‘tis what I am

A dark abyss is the habitat which befits me


An antagonist all the way

Dwelling in this boundless obscurity

Perhaps scum like me deserve a jovial end

I silently yearn for a ray of light to shine my way


“I hope that a hero, a hero would save my day

And free me from the grave I repressed myself in,”

Aspects of institutions

Although individual, formal organizations, commonly identified as "institutions," may be deliberately and intentionally created by people, the development and functioning of institutions in society in general may be regarded as an instance of emergence; that is, institutions arise, develop and function in a pattern of social self-organization, which goes beyond the conscious intentions of the individual humans involved.
As mechanisms of social interaction, institutions are manifest in both formal organizations, such as the U.S. Congress, or the Roman Catholic Church, and, also, in informal social order and organization, reflecting human psychology, culture, habits and customs, and encompassing subjective experience of meaningful enactments. Most important institutions, considered abstractly, have both objective and subjective aspects: examples include money and marriage. The institution of money encompasses many formal organizations, including banks and government treasury departments and stock exchanges, which may be termed, "institutions," as well as subjective experiences, which guide people in their pursuit of personal well-being. Powerful institutions are able to imbue a paper currency with certain value, and to induce millions into cooperative production and trade in pursuit of economic ends abstractly denominated in that currency's units.[citation needed] The subjective experience of money is so pervasive and persuasive that economists talk of the "money illusion" and try to disabuse their students of it, in preparation for learning economic analysis.[citation needed]

Inspired by Himeko-chan, aren't you?
The episode itself was funny and inspiring, that I almost--ALMOST-- cried since I never thought of it that way.
But it was profound and a great inspiring episode.
This poem though impulsive manage to catch the essence of the episode (:
Hahaha*nose bleeding*
