So, this war of yours—how is it going?
Any sign of which way the wind’s blowing?
With the butcher in jail,
You can’t possibly fail!
By the way, your electrodes are showing.

Go and read all nine.


I should have put modesty to one side and said thanks back when you posted this, so... thanks for the post, Virge. Very much appreciated.
