Paper Crowns

 Once upon a time there was a man who made paper crowns for the gods. 

The gods thought nothing of such paltry offerings until he died. 

For there was no one to make paper crowns then.

So the gods made their own paper crowns. And told themselves that the flimsy nature of so strong a symbol was only to keep them humble.

And the world was better for it.
