Nine of them garnered relevance.
Two of them found 'truth'.
Three of them found fame and fortune.
One of them posed questions and challenged the status quo.
One opined that one can never find purpose without faith.
Two of them gave way to nihilism.
And so the nonet intoned in unison; paeans of varying tenors.
Yet each was heared and each gained followers,
who practiced rituals showing great reverance for their bromides.
