O walls you speak with tongue-in-cheek,
thy ramblings are for naught.
Before my soul grows dead and cold,
you'll feel the wrath I wrought.

Mine kin they weep, ne'er yours to keep,
while light of time grows dim.
It shall be told in print of bold,
tis nothing but a whim.

Thou thinks me weak, a rash critique,
I'll not be played the clown.
Let it be written, I am not smitten,
my best can bring thee down.

This land will bloom, above thy gloom,
in final protocol.
At judgement day you'll have no say,
when He rules Haggard's Halls.

Yes, the Board has said it! This is flawlessly constructed and so tight. And the energy within it is immense, like a coiled spring. Excellent, Paul. I particularly like those walls speaking tongue-in-cheek... guess they must be whispering into each other's ears! :)) Bless you, Kate xx
