“The Last Revelation” / A Memorable Fancy #119

     My followers discussed, voted, determined: I have become infallible. Everything I say is revelation: written down, published. Experts dissect each casual word to trace its hidden meaning. Contradictions are reasoned away, explained. My occasional grammatical errors become the new grammar. One impatient word and hundreds are put to death. No afterthoughts are allowed me. Every thought must be measured, its consequences foreseen before I speak, or desperate events occur.

     Overcome by responsibility, I develop a terror of speaking. I limit myself to a few nods, a gesture. My followers plead with me to give them more precious revelations, and so I will:

     My last revelation will be silence.
