Favorite Quote:
"When I said that Mercy stood
Within the borders by the wood,
I meant the lenient beast with claws
And bloody swift-dispatching jaws."

I set my mind to obfuscate,
And start my thoughts to dulling,
But little can I tolerate
To bring what I know to culling.
And I find that all despite
My curiosity's eternal vigil
I cannot condone the trite,
And still love the words that acts as sigils.
