#56 - The Mystical And Creative Pegacorn

Julius the Pegacorn was excellent at Snap -
and yet he never played.

This made people wonder at his reticence.
'How mysterious!' they whispered in their kitchens
and at their fireplaces. 'How fathomless he must be
to excel at something and yet
never exercise that talent. How wise.'

Julius once made Easter cards
for his colleagues, using his horn
to carve a block of soapstone
into a relief image of Jesus Christ
emerging from an egg,
then making rubbings of that image
in 4B pencil.

'How creative!' the people gasped.
However, in their society, creativity was frowned upon,
and so they hung him.
