aye yah yie

pree di shrieker deh

high chess with no mates

refusing to eat rook

volatile and sandy in the middle of the rheum

an arcane limbo

where shallow meets rootless

playing social in a huddle

no mind to the prowess

of the sorcerer's swift darning needle feelers

it's time we bare our fangs:

six or seven legendary

golden pearly whites

creeping out of the gully like thyme

and woodbine shoots
