 Death makes angels of us all & gives us wings

Where we had shoulders smooth as raven’s claws

No more money, no more fancy dress

This other Kingdom seems by far the best

until its other jaw reveals incest

& loose obedience to a vegetable law

I will not go

Prefer a Feast of Friends

To the Giant Family.
