Tall tales, whiskey and blood doth Mazy’s spray! When clear’d espy those absent of third place; home to Robert Footswift, Bob’s own table. ‘Twixt tankards would spread crimes and plans most foul; were braggards’ left to catch the cutpurse’s pick.

the coop a Temple Army new!  Forfend,
Pholtus, ‘gainst Syrul’s lies fully sown
across our streets!  Alas the porters’
silence grows more questions than answers.
