Instead of retribution, misfortune – a dull,
Oblivious to matters of fashion and oratory,
He moves the plot forward with a
Bland and unnerving in equal parts.

Satisfying than a cold cup of chance.
No dark villainy? Witty repartee?
How does our hero gain redemption?
What’s the third act?
Who would want to see this story?
Coin flip. Hero dies.
