Subject: RE: BS: Rap for emperor
In memory of the passing of the Imperial Naysayer, We herewith declare a period of thirty Earth days, or seven hundred and twenty rising and settings of the Sun, of mourning, to commence immediately.

During this time there will be no needless mirth, no needless frivolity, no needless music or song or both. During this period all of our subjects will wear black armbands, personal linens, hatbands, and weep into black handkerchiefs. The prisoners in the Imperial Oubliette will eat nothing but black food and drink naught but black water during this time.

Ritual mourning suicide is expressly forbidden under pain of death, as is ritual scarification and self-injury. Weeping and gnashing of teeth shall be kept to a minimum.

The late Imperial Naysayer would have wanted it that way.

We further declare that from this time forward this date shall be known throughout Our Realm as "Imperial Naysayer Day."

Emperor Rapparee, Imperious Rex                  His Mark
