Great Fool You Think You Are?

Yoda wins the lottery.
Hope's not the same thing as truth,
Nor the other way around,
The way mangles it, he does.
How could even a puppet sage
Cope with recalcitrant hope?
This is what a nickname does

To a prior sense of self.
Any name is a notion
Trailing clouds of story
And the associations
Dig their roots into the brain
Shoot their tendrils through its thoughts.
The story is I was wise.
