There were four wolves.  Only one
ruled.  Structure is a part of nature,
its cruel order, insensitive survival rates.

Yet order saves us;  how we struggle
against chaos, why we entertain the King,
how low we hold our bodies beneath His. 

Voluntary submission. Worship.

On the tail of each wolf, a unique
pattern of fur, like a fingerprint,
like the odor of self.  Recognition.

One theory is interesting:  if you're searching
for distinctive signs of royalty 
look to those who serve Him.
