     riverrun, past Eve and  Adam's,  from swerve of  shore to  bend of bay,
brings  us  by a commodius vicus  of recirculation back to  Howth Castle and
Environs.
     Sir Tristram, violer  d'amores,  fr'over the short sea, had  passencore
rearrived from  North  Armorica  on this side the scraggy  isthmus of Europe
Minor to wielderfight his penisolate war:  nor had topsawyer's rocks  by the
stream Oconee exaggerated  themselse to  Laurens County's gorgios while they
went  doublin  their mumper all  the time: nor  avoice  from afire bellowsed
mishe mishe to tauftauf thuartpeatrick not yet, though  venissoon after, had
a  kidscad  buttended  a bland  old  isaac: not yet,  though  all's  fair in
vanessy, were sosie sesthers wroth with twone nathandjoe. Rot a peck of pa's
malt had  Jhem or Shen brewed by arclight and rory end to the regginbrow was
to be seen ringsome on the aquaface.
     The fall (bababadalgharaghtakamminarronnkonnbronntonnerronntuonnthunnt-
rovarrhounawnskawntoohoohoordenenthurnuk!) of  a once wallstrait oldparr  is
retaled  early  in  bed  and  later  on  life  down  through  all  christian
minstrelsy. The great fall of  the offwall entailed at such short notice the
pftjschute of Finnegan, erse  solid man, that the  humptyhillhead of humself
prumptly  sends  an  unquiring  one  well  to  the  west  in  quest  of  his
tumptytumtoes: and their upturnpikepointandplace is at the knock out  in the
park where oranges have been laid  to rust upon the green since devlinsfirst
loved livvy.
     What  clashes  here of wills gen wonts,  oystrygods  gaggin  fishygods!
Br'kkek  K'kkek  K'kkek K'kkek! K?ax  K?ax K?ax! Ualu  Ualu  Ualu! Quaouauh!
Where  the  Baddelaries  partisans  are  still  out  to  mathmaster Malachus
Micgranes   and  the  Verdons  catapelting  the  camibalistics  out  of  the
Whoyteboyce of  Hoodie Head. Assiegates and boomeringstroms. Sod's brood, be
me   fear!   Sanglorians,   save!   Arms  apeal   with   larms,   appalling.
Killykillkilly: a toll, a toll. What chance cuddleys, what cashels aired and
ventilated! What bidimetoloves sinduced by  what tegotetabsolvers! What true
feeling for their's  hayair with what strawng voice of  false jiccup! O here
here how  hoth sprowled met the duskt the  father of fornicationists but, (O
my shining stars  and  body!)  how  hath  fanespanned most high  heaven  the
skysign of soft advertisement! But was iz?  Iseut? Ere were sewers? The oaks
of ald now they lie in peat yet elms leap where askes  lay. Phall if you but
will, rise you must: and none so soon either  shall the pharce for the nunce
come to a setdown secular phoenish.
     Bygmester  Finnegan, of the Stuttering Hand, freemen's maurer, lived in
the broadest way immarginable in his rushlit toofarback for messuages before
joshuan judges had given us numbers or Helviticus committed deuteronomy (one
yeastyday  he sternely struxk his tete in  a tub for to watsch the future of
his fates but ere he swiftly stook it out again, by  the might of moses, the
very water was eviparated and all the guenneses had met their exodus so that
ought to show you what a pentschanjeuchy chap he was!) and during mighty odd
years  this man of hod, cement  and edifices in Toper's Thorp piled buildung
supra buildung pon the banks for the livers by the Soangso. He  addle liddle
phifie Annie ugged  the little craythur.  Wither hayre in honds tuck up your
part inher. Oftwhile balbulous,  mithre  ahead, with goodly trowel  in grasp
and  ivoroiled  overalls   which  he  habitacularly  fondseed,  like  Haroun
Childeric Eggeberth he  would caligulate by multiplicables the alltitude and
malltitude until  he seesaw by neatlight of the liquor wheretwin 'twas born,
his  roundhead  staple  of other days to  rise in undress maisonry upstanded
(joygrantit!), a waalworth of a skyerscape of most eyeful  hoyth  entowerly,
erigenating  from  next  to nothing  and celescalating the  himals  and all,
hierarchitectitiptitoploftical, with  a burning bush abob  off its baubletop
and with  larrons  o'toolers clittering up and tombles a'buckets  clottering
down.
     Of the  first  was he to  bare  arms and a name: Wassaily Booslaeugh of
Riesengeborg.  His crest of huroldry, in  vert  with  ancillars,  troublant,
argent, a hegoak, poursuivant,  horrid, horned. His  scutschum  fessed, with
archers strung, helio, of the second. Hootch is for husbandman  handling his
hoe.  Hohohoho, Mister Finn,  you're  going to be Mister Finnagain!  Comeday
morm and, O,  you're vine! Sendday's eve and, ah,  you're vinegar! Hahahaha,
Mister Funn, you're going to be fined again!
     What  then  agentlike  brought  about that  tragoady  thundersday  this
municipal sin  business? Our  cubehouse  still rocks  as  earwitness  to the
thunder of his arafatas but we hear also through successive ages that shebby
choruysh of  unkalified  muzzlenimiissilehims  that would blackguardise  the
whitestone ever hurtleturtled out of heaven. Stay us wherefore in our search
for tighteousness,  O Sustainer, what time  we rise  and when we  take up to
toothmick and before we lump down upown  our leatherbed and in the night and
at the fading of the stars ! For  a nod to the nabir is better  than wink to
the  wabsanti. Otherways  wesways  like that  provost scoffing  bedoueen the
jebel  and  the  jpysian sea. Cropherb the crunchbracken shall decide.  Then
we'll know if the feast is a flyday. She has a gift of seek on site  and she
allcasually ansars helpers, the dreamydeary. Heed! Heed ! It may half been a
missfired brick, as  some say, or it mought have been due to a  collupsus of
his back promises, as others looked at it. (There extand by now one thousand
and one stories, all  told, of the  same).  But so  sore did  abe ite ivvy's
holired  abbles, (what with the wallhall's horrors of rollsrights, carhacks,
stonengens,     kisstvanes,    tramtrees,    fargobawlers,     autokinotons,
hippohobbilies,   streetfleets,  tournintaxes,  megaphoggs,   circuses   and
wardsmoats and  basilikerks and aeropagods and the hoyse and  the jollybrool

for may and a  reef for hugh butt under his bridge  suits  tony) wan warning
Phill  filt tippling  full. His  howd feeled heavy, his  hoddit  did  shake.
(There was a wall of course in erection) Dimb! He stottered from the latter.
Damb! he  was  dud. Dumb! Mastabatoom, mastabadtomm,  when a mon merries his
lute is all long. For whole the world to see.
     Shize?  I  should shee! Macool, Macool, orra  whyi deed  ye diie? of  a
trying thirstay mournin? Sobs they sighdid at Fillagain's chrissormiss wake,
all the hoolivans of the nation, prostrated in their consternation and their
duodisimally  profusive plethora of ululation.  There  was plumbs and grumes
and cheriffs and  citherers and raiders and cinemen too. And  the all gianed
in with  the  shoutmost  shoviality.  Agog and magog and the  round of  them
agrog.  To  the  continuation  of  that  celebration  until  Hanandhunigan's
extermination! Some in  kinkin  corass, more, kankan keening. Belling him up
and filling him down. He's  stiff but he's  steady  is Priam Olim ! 'Twas he
was the dacent gaylabouring youth. Sharpen his pillowscone, tap up his bier!
E'erawhere in this whorl would ye hear sich a din again? With their deepbrow
fundigs and the dusty fidelios. They laid him brawdawn alanglast bed. With a
bockalips  of  finisky fore his feet. And a  barrowload of guenesis hoer his
head. Tee the tootal of the fluid hang the twoddle of the fuddled, O !
     Hurrah, there is but young gleve for the owl globe wheels in view which
is tautaulogically  the same thing. Well,  Him a being so on the flounder of
his bulk like an overgrown  babeling, let wee peep,  see, at  Hom, well, see
peegee ought he  ought, platterplate. Hum  ! From  Shopalist to Bailywick or
from ashtun to baronoath  or from Buythebanks to  Roundthehead  or from  the
foot of the bill to ireglint's eye he calmly extensolies. And all the way (a
horn!) from fiord  to fjell his baywinds'  oboboes shall wail him  rockbound
(hoahoahoah!)  in  swimswamswum  and  all the livvylong night, the  delldale
dalppling  night,  the night  of  bluerybells,  her  flittaflute  in  tricky
trochees (O carina! O carina!) wake him. With her  issavan  essavans and her
patterjackmartins  about all them  inns and ouses. Tilling a  teel of a tum,
telling a toll of a teary turty Taubling. Grace  before Glutton. For what we
are, gifs a gross if we are, about to believe. So pool the begg and pass the
kish  for  crawsake.  Omen. So sigh us. Grampupus  is fallen down but grinny
sprids the boord. Whase on the joint of a desh? Finfoefom the Fush. Whase be
his  baken head? A loaf  of Singpantry's Kennedy bread. And whase hitched to
the hop  in his tayle? A  glass of  Danu U'Dunnell's foamous  olde  Dobbelin
ayle.  But, lo, as you would quaffoff his fraudstuff and sink  teeth through
that pyth of  a  flowerwhite  bodey  behold  of  him  as behemoth for  he is
noewhemoe. Finiche!  Only a fadograph  of a  yestern  scene. Almost rubicund
Salmosalar,  ancient fromout the ages  of the Agapemonides, he is smolten in
our  mist, woebecanned and packt  away. So that  meal's dead off for summan,
schlook, schlice and goodridhirring.
     Yet  may we not see still  the brontoichthyan form outlined aslumbered,
even in our own nighttime by the sedge of the  troutling stream that  Bronto
loved  and Brunto has a lean on. Hic cubat edilis. Apud libertinam parvulam.
Whatif she be in flags or flitters, reekierags or sundyechosies, with a mint

Upon Benn Heather, in Seeple Isout too.  The  cranic  head on him, caster of

This  is  the  bog  lipoleum  mordering  the  lipoleum  beg.  A  Gallawghurs

Assaye, assaye! Touchole Fitz Tuomush. Dirty MacDyke. And Hairy O'Hurry. All
of them arminus-varminus.  This  is Delian alps. This is Mont Tivel, this is
Mont Tipsey, this is the Grand Mons Injun.  This  is  the crimealine of  the
alps  hooping to  sheltershock the three lipoleums. This is the jinnies with
their legahorns feinting to read  in their handmade's book of stralegy while
making their war undisides the  Willingdone. The jinnies is a cooin her hand

This  is big Willingdone mormorial tallowscoop Wounderworker obscides on the

Cherry jinnies. Figtreeyou!  Damn fairy ann, Voutre. Willingdone.  That  was
the  first joke  of  Willingdone, tic for tac. Hee,  hee,  hee!  This is  me

rinnaway  jinnies. Gambariste  della porca! Dalaveras fimmieras! This is the
pettiest of the lipoleums, Toffeethief, that spy on the Willingdone from his

Downadown,  High  Downadown. And nummered quaintlymine. And such  reasonable

Under his seven wrothschields lies one, Lumproar. His  glav toside him. Skud
ontorsed. Our  pigeons  pair  are  flewn for northcliffs. The three of crows
have flapped it southenly, kraaking of de baccle to the kvarters of that sky
whence triboos answer; Wail, 'tis well!  She niver comes  out when Thon's on
shower  or when  Thon's flash  with  his Nixy  girls or when Thon's  blowing
toomcracks down the gaels of Thon. No nubo no! Neblas on you liv!  Her would
be too moochy afreet. Of Burymeleg and Bindmerollingeyes and all the deed in
the woe. Fe fo fom! She jist does hopes till byes will be byes. Here, and it
goes on  to appear now, she  comes, a  peacefugle,  a parody's  bird, a peri
potmother, a  pringlpik in  the  ilandiskippy,  with peewee  and  powwows in
beggybaggy  on  her  bickybacky  and   a  flick   flask  fleckflinging   its
pixylighting pacts' huemeramybows,  picking here, pecking  there, pussypussy
plunderpussy.  But  it's the armitides toonigh, militopucos, and toomourn we
wish  for a  muddy kissmans to the minutia  workers  and  there's  to  be  a
gorgeups truce  for  happinest childher everwere. Come nebo me and suso sing
the day we sallybright. She's burrowed the coacher's headlight the better to
pry (who goes  cute  goes siocur and shoos aroun) and all  spoiled  goods go
into her nabsack: curtrages  and rattlin buttins, nappy spattees  and flasks
of all nations,  clavicures  and scampulars,  maps,  keys  and woodpiles  of
haypennies  and  moonled  brooches with bloodstaned  breeks  in em,  boaston
nightgarters and masses of shoesets and nickelly nacks and foder  allmicheal
and a lugly parson of cates  and  howitzer muchears and midgers and maggets,
ills  and ells  with loffs of toffs and pleures of bells  and the  last sigh
that come fro  the hart  (bucklied!) and the fairest sin the  sunsaw (that's
cearc!). With Kiss. Kiss  Criss.  Cross Criss. Kiss Cross.  Undo lives 'end.
Slain.
     How bootifull and how truetowife of  her,  when strengly forebidden, to
steal our historic presents from  the past  postpropheticals  so as to  will
make us all lordy heirs and ladymaidesses of a pretty nice kettle of  fruit.
She is livving in our  midst of debt  and laffing  through all plores for us
(her birth is uncontrollable),  with a  naperon for her mask and her sabboes
kickin arias (so sair! so  solly!) if yous ask me and I saack you. Hou! Hou!
Gricks  may rise  and  Troysirs  fall  (there being  two sights for  ever  a
picture) for in  the byways of high improvidence that's what  makes lifework
leaving and the world's a  cell for citters to cit in. Let young wimman  run
away  with the story  and let young min  talk  smooth  behind the butteler's
back. She knows her knight's duty while Luntum sleeps.  Did ye save any tin?
says he.  Did  I what? with  a grin says she. And we all like  a  marriedann
because  she  is  mercenary.  Though  the  length  of  the  land lies  under
liquidation (floote!) and there's nare a  hairbrow nor an  eyebush  on  this
glaubrous phace of Herrschuft Whatarwelter she'll loan a vesta and hire some
peat and sarch the shores  her cockles to heat and she'll do all a turfwoman
can to piff the business  on. Paff. To puff the  blaziness on. Poffpoff. And
even  if  Humpty   shell  fall  frumpty  times  as  awkward  again  in   the
beardsboosoloom of  all our  grand remonstrancers there'll  be  iggs for the
brekkers come  to mournhim,  sunny  side up with  care. So  true is  it that
therewhere's a turnover the  tay is  wet  too and when you  think you  ketch
sight of a hind make sure but you're cocked by a hin.
     Then as she is on her  behaviourite job of quainance bandy, fruting for
firstlings and taking her tithe, we may take our review of the two mounds to
see  nothing of the himples here as  at elsewhere, by sixes and sevens, like
so many heegills and collines, sitton aroont, scentbreeched ant somepotreek,
in their swishawish  satins and  their  taffetaffe tights, playing Wharton's
Folly, at a  treepurty on  the planko  in the purk. Stand up,  mickos!  Make
strake for minnas ! By order, Nicholas Proud. We may see and hear nothing if
we choose  of the  shortlegged  bergins  off Corkhill or the  bergamoors  of
Arbourhill  or  the  bergagambols  of  Summerhill  or  the bergincellies  of
Miseryhill  or the  countrybossed bergones of Constitutionhill  though every
crowd has  its several  tones and every trade has its clever  mechanics  and
each harmonical has a point of its own, Olaf's on the rise and Ivor's on the
lift and Sitric's place's between  them. But all they are all there scraping
along  to sneeze out a likelihood that will solve and salve  life's robulous
rebus,  hopping round his middle like kippers on  a griddle,  O, as he  lays
dormont from the  macroborg of  Holdhard to the microbirg of Pied de Poudre.
Behove  this sound of  Irish sense.  Really?  Here English  might  be  seen.
Royally? One  sovereign punned to  petery pence. Regally? The silence speaks
the scene. Fake!
     So This Is Dyoublong?
     Hush! Caution ! Echoland !
     How  charmingly  exquisite!  It reminds you of the  outwashed engravure
that we used to be blurring  on the  blotchwall of his  innkempt house. Used
they? (I am sure that tiring chabelshoveller with  the mujikal chocolat box,
Miry  Mitchel,  is  listening) I say,  the  remains of the outworn gravemure
where used to be blurried the Ptollmens of the Incabus. Used we? (He is only
pretendant  to  be  stugging at  the  jubalee  harp  from  a second  existed
lishener, Fiery  Farrelly.) It is  well known. Lokk for himself and see  the
old butte new. Dbln. W. K. O. O. Hear? By the mausolime wall. Fimfim fimfim.
With  a grand funferall.  Fumfum fumfum.  'Tis  optophone  which ontophanes.
List! Wheatstone's magic lyer.  They will be tuggling  foriver. They will be
lichening for  allof. They  will be  pretumbling  forover. The harpsdischord
shall be theirs for ollaves.
     Four things therefore, saith our herodotary Mammon Lujius in  his grand
old historiorum, wrote near Boriorum, bluest book in baile's annals, f t. in
Dyffinarsky ne'er sall  fail til heathersmoke and  cloudweed Eire's ile sall

bulbenboss surmounted  upon an alderman. Ay, ay! Duum.  (Nizam.) A shoe on a
puir old wobban. Ah, ho!  Triom. (Tamuz.) An auburn  mayde, o'brine a'bride,
to be desarted. Adear, adear! Quodlibus. (Marchessvan.) A  penn no weightier

     So, how idlers' wind  turning pages on pages, as innocens with anaclete
play  popeye antipop, the leaves of  the  living in the boke  of the  deeds,
annals  of themselves timing the  cycles of events grand and national, bring
fassilwise to pass how.
     II32  A.D.  Men  like to  ants or emmets  wondern upon  a  groot  hwide
Whallfisk which lay in a Runnel. Blubby wares upat Ublanium.
     566  A.D.  On Baalfire's night of this year after  deluge a crone  that

     566 A.D. At this  time it  fell out  that a brazenlockt damsel  grieved
(sobralasolas!) because that Puppette her minion was ravisht-of  her  by the
ogre Puropeus Pious. Bloody wars in Ballyaughacleeaghbally.
     II32. A.D. Two sons at  an  hour were born until a goodman and his hag.
These sons called themselves Caddy  and Primas. Primas was  a santryman  and
drilled all decent  people.  Caddy went to  Winehouse  and wrote  o  peace a
farce. Blotty words for Dublin.
     Somewhere, parently,  in  the ginnandgo  gap between antediluvious  and
annadominant the copyist  must have fled with his  scroll. The  billy  flood
rose   or  an  elk   charged  him  or  the  sultrup  worldwright  from   the
excelsissimost  empyrean  (bolt,  in sum) earthspake or the Dannamen gallous
banged pan  the bliddy duran. A scribicide then and there  is led  off under
old's  code with some fine covered by six marks or ninepins  in metalmen for
the  sake of his labour's dross  while it will be  only now and again in our
rear  of  o'er era, as an upshoot of military and  civil engagements, that a
gynecure  was let on to  the scuffold for taking that same fine sum covertly
by meddlement with the drawers of his neighbour's safe.
     Now after all that  farfatch'd and peragrine or dingnant or clere  lift
we  our  ears, eyes of the  darkness,  from the  tome  of Liber Lividus and,
(toh!), how paisibly  eirenical, all dimmering dunes and gloamering  glades,
selfstretches  afore us our fredeland's  plain! Lean  neath  stone  pine the
pastor lies with his crook; young  pricket by pricket's  sister nibbleth  on
returned  viridities;  amaid her  rocking  grasses  the herb  trinity  shams
lowliness; skyup is  of  evergrey. Thus,  too, for donkey's years. Since the
bouts of  Hebear and Hairyman the cornflowers have been staying at Ballymun,
the  duskrose  has choosed out  Goatstown's  hedges,  twolips  have  pressed
togatherthem by sweet Rush, townland of twinedlights, the whitethorn and the
redthorn  have  fairygeyed the  mayvalleys of Knockmaroon,  and,  though for
rings round  them, during a chiliad  of  perihelygangs, the Formoreans  have
brittled the tooath of  the Danes and  the  Oxman  has been pestered  by the
Firebugs and  the Joynts  have thrown up jerrybuilding to the  Kevanses  and
Little  on  the  Green  is   childsfather  to  the  City  (Year!  Year!  And

     The babbelers  with their thangas vain have been (confusium hold them!)
they were  and went; thigging thugs  were and  houhnhymn  songtoms  were and
comely  norgels were and  pollyfool fiansees. Menn have thawed, clerks  have
surssurhummed, the blond  has sought of the brune: Elsekiss thou  may,  mean
Kerry piggy?: and the duncledames  have countered with the  hellish fellows:
Who  ails tongue coddeau,  aspace of dumbillsilly?  And they fell upong  one
another: and themselves they have fallen. And still nowanights and by nights
of yore do  all bold floras of  the field to  their shyfaun lovers say only:
Cull me ere I wilt to  thee!: and,  but a  little later:  Pluck me whilst  I
blush! Well may they  wilt, marry, and profusedly blush,  be troth! For that
saying  is  as  old as  the howitts. Lave a  whale a  while in a whillbarrow

     It was of  a night, late, lang  time  agone, in an  auldstane eld, when
Adam was delvin and his madameen spinning watersilts,  when mulk mountynotty
man was everybully and  the first leal ribberrobber that ever had her ainway
everybuddy to his lovesaking eyes and everybilly lived alove with everybiddy
else,  and  Jarl  van Hoother had  his burnt head high up in his  lamphouse,
laying cold hands on himself. And his two little jiminies, cousins of  ourn,
Tristopher  and Hilary, were kickaheeling their dummy on the oil cloth flure
of  his homerigh, castle  and  earthenhouse. And, be dermot, who come to the
keep of his  inn  only  the  nieceof-his-in-law,  the  prankquean.  And  the
prankquean pulled a rosy one and made  her  wit  foreninst the dour. And she
lit up and  fireland was  ablaze.  And spoke  she  to  the dour in her petty
perusienne: Mark the Wans, why do I am alook  alike  a poss  of porterpease?
And that was how  the skirtmisshes began. But the dour  handworded her grace
in  dootch  nossow:  Shut! So her grace  o'malice kidsnapped  up  the jiminy
Tristopher and into the shandy westerness she rain, rain, rain. And Jarl van
Hoother warlessed after her with soft dovesgall: Stop deef stop come back to
my earin  stop.  But  she  swaradid  to  him: Unlikelihud.  And  there was a
brannewail that same sabboath night of falling angles somewhere in Erio. And
the prankquean went  for her forty years' walk in Tourlemonde and she washed
the blessings of the lovespots off the jiminy with soap sulliver suddles and
she  had  her four owlers  masters  for  to tauch  him  his  tickles and she
convorted him to the onesure  allgood  and he became a luderman. So then she
started to rain  and to rain and, be redtom, she was back again at Jarl  van
Hoother's  in a brace of  samers and the jiminy with her  in  her pinafrond,
lace at night, at another time. And where did she come but to the bar of his
bristolry. And Jarl von Hoother  had his baretholobruised heels  drowned  in
his cellarmalt, shaking warm hands with  himself and the jimminy  Hilary and
the dummy in their  first infancy  were below on the tearsheet, wringing and
coughing, like brodar and histher. And the prankquean nipped a paly  one and
lit  up again and redcocks flew flackering from  the hillcombs. And she made
her witter before the wicked, saying: Mark the Twy, why do I  am alook alike
two  poss  of  porterpease?  And:  Shut!  says the  wicked,  handwording her
madesty. So  her madesty  'a forethought'  set down  a jiminy and took up  a
jiminy and all  the lilipath ways to Woeman's Land she rain, rain, rain. And
Jarl von Hoother bleethered atter her with a loud  finegale:  Stop domb stop
come  back with my  earring stop. But the prankquean swaradid: Am liking it.
And there  was a wild old  grannewwail that  laurency night of starshootings
somewhere  in Erio. And the prankquean  went for  her  forty years' walk  in
Turnlemeem and she punched the curses of cromcruwell with the nail of  a top
into the jiminy and  she had  her  four larksical monitrix to  touch him his
tears  and she provorted  him to the  onecertain  allsecure  and he became a
tristian. So then she started  raining, raining, and in a pair  of changers,
be dom ter, she was back again at Jarl von Hoother's and  the Larryhill with
her under her abromette. And why would she halt at all if not by the ward of
his mansionhome of another nice lace  for  the  third  charm? And  Jarl  von
Hoother had  his  hurricane  hips  up to  his  pantrybox,  ruminating in his
holdfour stomachs (Dare! O dare!), ant the jiminy Toughertrees and the dummy
were  belove  on  the  watercloth,  kissing  and spitting,  and  roguing and
poghuing, like knavepaltry and naivebride and  in  their second infancy. And
the prankquean picked a blank and lit out and the valleys lay twinkling. And
she made  her  wittest in  front of the arkway of trihump, asking: Mark  the
Tris, why do I  am alook alike  three poss of porter pease? But that was how
the skirtmishes endupped. For like  the campbells acoming with  a fork lance
of-lightning, Jarl von  Hoother  Boanerges  himself, the old terror  of  the
dames, came hip hop handihap out through  the pikeopened arkway of his three
shuttoned castles, in  his broadginger  hat  and his civic chollar  and  his
allabuff hemmed and his bullbraggin  soxangloves and his ladbroke breeks and
his cattegut bandolair and his furframed panuncular  cumbottes  like  a rudd
yellan gruebleen orangeman in his  violet indigonation, to  the whole longth
of the  strongth of his bowman's bill. And he clopped his  rude hand to  his
eacy hitch and he ordurd  and his thick spch spck for  her  to shut up shop,
dappy.      And      the      duppy      shot     the      shutter      clup
(Perkodhuskurunbarggruauyagokgorlayorgromgremmitghundhurthrumathunaradidillifaititillibumullunukkunun!)
And  they  all drank free. For one man in his armour was a  fat match always
for any girls  under shurts. And that  was  the first peace  of illiterative
porthery in all the flamend floody flatuous world. How kirssy the tiler made
a sweet unclose to the Narwhealian captol. Saw fore  shalt thou  sea. Betoun
ye and be. The prankquean was to hold her dummyship and the jimminies was to
keep  the  peacewave  and  van  Hoother  was to  git  the wind up. Thus  the
hearsomeness of the burger felicitates the whole of the polis.

and ribbons there all your hands were employed so she  never knew was she on
land or  at sea or swooped through the blue like Airwinger's  bride. She was
flirtsome then and she's fluttersome yet. She can second a song and adores a
scandal when the last post's gone by. Fond of a concertina and pairs passing
when  she's  had her forty  winks  for  supper  after kanekannan and  abbely
dimpling and is in her merlin chair assotted, reading  her Evening World. To

a leopard, kills fellah in Fez. Angry  scenes at Stormount. Stilla Star with
her lucky in goingaways. Opportunity fair with the China floods  and we hear
these rosy  rumours. Ding Tams he  noise  about all  same Harry  chap. She's

shebi  by his shide, adi  and aid,  growing  hoarish  under  his turban  and
changing cane  sugar into sethulose starch  (Tuttut's cess to him!) as  also
that, batin the bulkihood he bloats about when innebbiated, our old offender

     Now (to forebare for  ever solittle of Iris Trees  and Lili O'Rangans),
concerning the genesis of Harold or Humphrey Chimpden's occupational agnomen
(we  are back in  the presurnames prodromarith period,  of course just  when
enos chalked  halltraps)  and discarding once  for all those  theories  from
older sources  which would link him back with such pivotal ancestors as  the
Glues,  the  Gravys,  the  Northeasts,  the  Ankers and  the  Earwickers  of
Sidlesham in the Hundred of Manhood or proclaim him offsprout of vikings who
had founded  wapentake  and  seddled  hem  in  Herrick  or  Eric,  the  best
authenticated version, the Dumlat, read the  Reading of Hofed-ben-Edar,  has
it  that it was this  way. We are told how in the beginning it came  to pass
that  like  cabbaging Cincinnatus the grand old gardener was saving daylight
under his  redwoodtree one sultry  sabbath afternoon,  Hag Chivychas Eve, in
prefall paradise  peace  by  following  his plough for  rootles  in the rere
garden  of mobhouse,  ye  olde marine  hotel,when  royalty was announced  by
runner  to have  been pleased  to have halted itself on the  highroad  along
which a leisureloving dogfox had cast followed, also at walking  pace,  by a
lady pack  of cocker  spaniels.  Forgetful  of all  save his vassal's  plain
fealty to the  ethnarch Humphrey or Harold  stayed not to yoke or saddle but
stumbled out  hotface  as  he  was (his  sweatful  bandanna loose  from  his
pocketcoat) hasting to  the  forecourts  of his public in topee,  surcingle,
solascarf and plaid, plus fours, puttees and bulldog boots ruddled  cinnabar
with  flagrant marl, jingling  his turnpike keys and  bearing aloft amid the
fixed pikes of the hunting party a high perch atop of which a  flowerpot was
fixed earthside hoist with care. On  his majesty, who  was, or often feigned
to  be,  noticeably  longsighted from green youth and  had  been  meaning to
inquire what, in effect, had caused yon causeway to be thus potholed, asking
substitutionally to be put wise as to whether paternoster and silver doctors
were not now more fancied bait for lobstertrapping honest blunt Haromphreyld
answered in no uncertain tones very similarly with a fearless forehead: Naw,
yer  maggers, aw war jist a  cotchin on thon  bluggy earwuggers. Our  sailor
king, who  was draining a  gugglet of obvious adamale, gift both and gorban,
upon this, ceasing to swallow,  smiled  most  heartily  beneath  his  walrus
moustaches and indulging that none too genial humour which  William the Conk
on the  spindle  side  had inherited with  the hereditary whitelock and some
shortfingeredness  from  his  greataunt Sophy,  turned  towards  two of  his
retinue of gallowglasses, Michael, etheling lord of  Leix and Offaly and the
jubilee  mayor  of Drogheda, Elcock,  (the two scatterguns being  Michael M.
Manning, protosyndic  of Waterford and an Italian excellency  named Giubilei
according to  a  later version  cited by the  learned  scholarch Canavan  of
Canmakenoise),  in  either  case  a triptychal religious  family symbolising

these the facts of his nominigentilisation as recorded and accolated in both
or  either of the collateral andrewpaulmurphyc narratives.  Are those  their

if so be you  have metheg in  your  midness,  this man is  mountain and unto

that  it   was  not  the  king   kingself  but   his  inseparable   sisters,
uncontrollable nighttalkers, Skertsiraizde with  Donyahzade, who afterwards,
when the  robberers shot up the socialights,came  down  into  the  world  as
amusers and were staged  by Madame Sudlow  as Rosa and Lily Miskinguette  in
the  pantalime that  two pitts  paythronosed,  Miliodorus  and Galathee. The
great  fact emerges that  after that  historic date  all  holographs  so far
exhumed initialled by Haromphrey bear the sigla H.C.E. and while he was only
and  long  and  always good Dook  Umphrey for  the  hungerlean spalpeens  of
Lucalizod and Chimbers  to his cronies it was  equally certainly  a pleasant
turn of the populace  which gave him as sense of those normative letters the
nickname  Here  Comes Everybody.  An  imposing  everybody  he  always indeed
looked, constantly the same  as and equal to  himself and magnificently well
worthy  of any  and  all such universalisation,  every  time he  continually
surveyed, amid  vociferatings from in front of Accept these few nutties! and

where, a  veritable Napoleon the Nth, our  worldstage's  practical jokepiece
and retired cecelticocommediant in his own wise,this folksforefather all  of
the time sat,having the entirety of his house about him, with the invariable
broadstretched kerchief cooling  his whole neck, nape and shoulderblades and
in  a wardrobe  panelled  tuxedo  completely thrown back  from a shirt  well
entitled  a  swallowall,  on  every  point  far  outstarching the  laundered
clawhammers  and  marbletopped  highboys  of   the  pit  stalls  and   early
amphitheatre. The piece was this: look at the lamps. The cast was  thus: see
under  the  clock.  Ladies circle:  cloaks  may  be left.  Pit,  prommer and
parterre, standing room only. Habituels conspicuously emergent.
     A baser  meaning  has been read into these characters the literal sense
of which decency can safely scarcely hint. It has been blurtingly bruited by
certain  wisecrackers (the  stinks of  Mohorat are in the nightplots of  the
morning), that he  suffered from a vile  disease. Athma,  unmanner them!  To
such a suggestion the one selfrespecting answer  is to affirm that there are
certain statements which ought not to be, and one should like  to hope to be
able to  add,  ought not to be allowed to be  made. Nor have his detractors,
who, an  imperfectly warmblooded race,  apparently  conceive  him as a great
white caterpillar capable of any and every enormity in the calendar recorded
to the discredit  of  the Juke  and Kellikek  families, mended their case by
insinuating  that, alternately,  he  lay at one  time  under  the  ludicrous
imputation of annoying Welsh fusiliers in the  people's park. Hay, hay, hay!
Hoq, hoq, hoq! Faun and Flora on the lea love that little old joq. To anyone
who knew and loved  the christlikeness of the  big cleanminded  giant H.  C.
Earwicker  throughout  his excellency  long  vicefreegal existence  the mere
suggestion of him as a  lustsleuth  nosing for trouble in a  boobytrap rings
particularly preposterous. Truth, beard on prophet, compels one to add  that
there  is said  to have been quondam (pfuit! pfuit!)  some case  of the kind

who  did  not  dare deny,  the shomers, that  they had, chin Ted,  chin Tam,

absorbing as calzium chloereydes and  hydrophobe sponges could make it)  how
one happygogusty Ides-of-April morning (the anniversary, as  it fell  out,of
his first assumption of his mirthday suit and rights  in appurtenance to the
confusioning  of human  races) ages and  ages after the alleged misdemeanour
when the tried friend of all creation, tigerwood roadstaff to  his stay, was
billowing across the  wide expanse of  our  greatest park in his  caoutchouc
kepi and great belt and hideinsacks  and  his blaufunx fustian and ironsides
jackboots  and Bhagafat gaiters and his  rubberised inverness, he met a  cad
with  a pipe.  The latter, the luciferant  not the oriuolate  (who, the odds
are, is still berting dagabout in the same straw bamer, carryin his overgoat
under his schulder,  sheepside  out,  so  as  to  look  more  like a coumfry
gentleman and signing the pledge  as gaily  as you  please) hardily accosted

Hesitency  was  clearly  to  be  evitated.  Execration  as  cleverly  to  be
honnisoid. The Earwicker of that spurring  instant, realising on fundamental
liberal principles the supreme  importance, nexally and noxally, of physical
life (the nearest help relay  being pingping  K. O. Sempatrick's Day and the
fenian rising) and unwishful as he felt of being hurled into eternity  right
then, plugged by a softnosed bullet from the sap, halted, quick on the draw,

     This  Treacle Tom to whom reference has been made had  been absent from
his usual wild and woolly haunts in the land of counties capalleens for some
time  previous to that (he was, in fact, in the habit of frequenting  common
lodginghouses where he  slept  in a  nude state,  hailfellow  with  meth, in

in their sad rear like a lady's postscript: I want money. Pleasend),  wiping
their laughleaking  lipes  on their sleeves, how the bouckaleens shout their
roscan generally (seinn fion,  seinn  fion's araun.)  and the rhymers' world
was with reason the richer for a wouldbe  ballad,  to the balledder of which
the  world of cumannity singing  owes  a  tribute for  having  placed on the

     This, more krectly lubeen  or fellow -- me --  lieder was first  poured

fullyfilling the  visional  area and,  as  a singleminded supercrowd, easily
representative, what with masks, whet with faces, of all sections  and cross
sections  (wineshop and cocoahouse poured out  to brim  up the broaching) of
our  liffeyside people (to omit to mention of the mainland minority and such
as  had wayfared via Watling, Ernin,  Icknild and Stane,  in chief a  halted
cockney car with its quotal of Hardmuth's hacks, a northern tory, a southern

slips of young dublinos from Cutpurse Row  having nothing better to  do than
walk  about  with their  hands  in  their  kneepants,  sucking  airwhackers,

balls  and  poplin  in  search  of a croust  of  pawn  to busy  professional
gentlemen, a  brace  of  palesmen with dundrearies, nooning  toward  Daly's,
fresh from snipehitting and mallardmissing on Rutland heath, exchanging cold
sneers,  massgoing ladies  from Hume  Street in  their  chairs, the  bearers
baited, some wandering hamalags out of the adjacent  cloverfields of Mosse's
Gardens, an oblate father  from Skinner's Alley, bricklayers,  a fleming, in

suffering  hell's delights  from the blains of  their annuitants' acorns not
forgetting  a deuce of dianas ridy for the hunt, a particularist  prebendary
pondering on the roman easter, the tonsure question and greek uniates, plunk
em, a lace lappet head or two or three or four from a window, and so on down
to  a few good old souls, who,as they  were juiced after taking their pledge
over at the uncle's place, were evidently  under the spell  of liquor,  from
the  wake  of Tarry the Tailor  a fair  girl,  a jolly postoboy thinking off
three flagons and one, a plumodrole, a half sir  from the weaver's almshouse
who clings and clings and chatchatchat clings to her, a wholedam's cloudhued
pittycoat, as  child, as  curiolater, as Caoch  O'Leary. The  wararrow  went
round, so it did, (a nation wants  a gaze) and the ballad,  in the felibrine
trancoped metre  affectioned  by Taiocebo  in his Casudas  de  Poulichinello
Artahut,  stumpstampaded  on  to  a  slip  of  blancovide  and  headed by an
excessively  rough  and red woodcut, privately  printed at the  rimepress of
Delville, soon fluttered its secret on white highway and  brown byway to the
rose of the  winds and the blew of the gaels,  from  archway to lattice  and
from  black hand to pink  ear,  village  crying to village, through the five
pussyfours green of the united states of Scotia Picta--and he who denays it,
may his hairs be rubbed in dirt!  To the added strains (so peacifold) of his
majesty the  flute, that onecrooned king of  inscrewments, Piggott's purest,

     "THE BALLAD OF PERSSE O'REILLY

     Have  you heard  of  one Humpty Dumpty How he fell with  a roll  and  a

Wall,
     (Chorus) Of the Magazine Wall,
     Hump, helmet and all?

     He was one time our King of  the Castle  Now  he's kicked  about like a
rotten old  parsnip. And from  Green street  he'll be sent  by  order of His
Worship To the penal jail of Mountjoy

     (Chorus) To the jail of Mountjoy!
     Jail him and joy.

     He  was fafafather  of all schemes  for to bother us  Slow  coaches and
immaculate contraceptives for the populace, Mare's milk for the sick,  seven
dry Sundays a week, Openair love and religion's reform,
     (Chorus) And religious reform,
     Hideous in form.

     Arrah,  why, says  you,  couldn't he manage  it?  I'll go bail, my fine
dairyman darling, Like  the  bumping bull of the Cassidys All your butter is
in your horns.
     (Chorus) His butter is in his horns.
     Butter his horns!

     (Repeat) Hurrah there, Hosty, frosty Hosty, change that shirt

     So snug he was in his  hotel premises sumptuous But soon  we'll bonfire
all his  trash, tricks  and trumpery And'tis short till sheriff Clancy'll be
winding up his unlimited

     (Chorus) Bimbam at the door.
     Then he'll bum no more.

     Sweet bad luck on  the  waves washed to our  island The hooker  of that
hammerfast viking And Gall's curse on the day when Eblana  bay Saw his black

     (Chorus) Saw his man-o'-war.

     He is, begod.

     Lift it, Hosty, lift it, ye devil ye! up with the rann, the rhyming
     [rann!

     It  was  during  some fresh water  garden pumping  Or, according to the
Nursing Mirror, while admiring the mon
     [keys That our heavyweight heathen Humpharey Made bold a maid to woo
     (Chorus) Woohoo, what'll she doo!
     The general lost her maidenloo!

     He ought to blush for himself, the old hayheaded philosopher, For to go

     He was joulting by  Wellinton's monument  Our rotorious hippopopotamuns
When some bugger let down the backtrap  of  the  omnibus And he  caught  his

     Give him six years.

     'Tis sore  pity for his innocent poor  children But  look  out for  his

That  perpendicular person is a brut! But a magnificent brut! 'Caligula' (Mr
Danl Magrath,  bookmaker, wellknown to Eastrailian poorusers of  the  Sydney

Sylvia  Silence,  the  girl  detective  (Meminerva,  but by  now  one  hears
turtlings  all over Doveland!) when  supplied  with informations  as  to the
several  facets  of  the  case  in  her  cozydozy  bachelure's  flat,  quite
overlooking John  a'Dream's mews, leaned back in her really truly easy chair
to  query  restfully  through  her  vowelthreaded syllabelles: Have you evew

     Be these meer marchant taylor's fablings of a race referend with oddman
rex? Is  now all seenheard  then forgotten? Can it  was, one is fain in this
leaden age  of letters now to wit, that so  diversified outrages (they  have
still  to come!) were planned  and partly carried  out against so  staunch a
covenanter  if it be  true  than any of those recorded ever  took place  for
many, we trow, beyessed to  and denayed of, are given to  us by some who use
the  truth but sparingly  and we,  on this side  ought  to sorrow  for their
pricking pens on that account. The seventh  city, Urovivla, his  citadear of

a  raven  of  the  wave, (be  mercy, Mara! A he  whence Rahoulas!) from  the

luctuous land, Emeraldilluim,  the peasant  pastured, in which by the fourth
commandment with promise his days apostolic were to be long by  the abundant

     We seem  to us (the real Us !)  to be  reading our Amenti in the  sixth
sealed  chapter  of  the going forth  by black.  It  was after  the show  at
Wednesbury that one  tall  man, humping  a suspicious parcel, when returning
late amid a dense particular on  his home way  from the second  house of the
Boore and Burgess Christy Menestrels  by  the  old spot, Roy's Corner, had a
barkiss revolver placed to his faced with the words: you're  shot, major: by
an  unknowable  assailant (masked) against  whom he  had been jealous  over,
Lotta Crabtree  or  Pomona Evlyn. More than  that Whenn the Waylayer  (not a
Lucalizod diocesan or even of the Glendalough see, but hailing fro' the prow
of Little Britain), mentioning in a bytheway  that he, the crawsopper,  had,
in edition to Reade's cutless centiblade, a  loaded Hobson's which left only
twin alternatives as, viceversa, either he would surely shoot her, the aunt,
by pistol,  (she  could be okaysure of  that!) or, failing of such, bash  in
Patch's  blank face beyond  recognition, pointedly asked with  gaeilish gall
wodkar blizzard's business  Thornton had  with that Kane's fender only to be

how transparingly nontrue, gentlewriter ! His feet one  is not  a  tall man,
not  at all,man.  No such parson. No  such  fender. No such lumber. No  such
race. Was it supposedly in connection with a girls, Myramy Huey  or  Colores
Archer, under Flaggy Bridge (for ann there is but one liv  and hir newbridge
is her old) or to explode his twelvechamber and force  a shrievalty entrance
that the heavybuilt Abelbody in a butcherblue  blouse from One Life One Suit
(a  men's wear  store),  with  a  most  decisive  bottle of  single  in  his
possession, seized after  dark by the town guard  at  Haveyoucaught-emerod's
temperance gateway was there in a gate's way.
     Fifthly, how parasoliloquisingly truetoned on his first time of hearing
the wretch's statement that,  muttering Irish,  he had had had  o'gloriously
a'lot too  much hanguest or hoshoe fine to drink in the House of Blazes, the
Parrot in  Hell, the  Orange  Tree, the Glibt,  the Sun,  the Holy Lamb and,
lapse not leashed, in  Ramitdown's  ship hotel  since the  morning moment he
could  dixtinguish a white thread from a black till the  engine of  the laws
declosed  unto Murray and was  only  falling fillthefluthered up against the
gatestone pier  which, with  the cow's bonnet a'top o'it, he falsetook for a

hoy of his then  pseudojocax axplanation how, according to his own story, he
vas a process server and  was merely trying to open zozimus  a bottlop stoub
by  mortially hammering his  magnum bonum (the curter the club the sorer the

who hastily into his  shoes with nothing his hald  barra tinnteack  and came

in  his  obi  ohny  overclothes or choker, attracted  by the  norse of  guns
playing Delandy is cartager  on  the  raglar rock to Dulyn, said war' prised

a  fourth loud snore  out of  his  land of byelo while hickstrey's  maws was
grazing  in the  moonlight  by hearing  hammering  on the  pandywhank  scale
emanating from  the  blind pig and anything like it (oonagh!oonagh!)  in the
whole history of the Mullingcan Inn he  never. This battering  babel allower
the  door and  sideposts, he always said, was not in the  very remotest like
the  belzey babble of  a bottle  of boose  which would not rouse him out  o'
slumber deep  but reminded  him loads  more of  the  martiallawsey marses of
foreign  musikants' instrumongs or the overthrewer to the third last days of
Pompery,  if anything. And that after this most  nooningless  knockturn  the
young reine came down desperate and the old liffopotamus started ploring all
over the  plains, as mud  as she cud be, ruinating all the bouchers' schurts
and   the  backers'  wischandtugs  so  that  be   the  chandeleure  of   the

Your machelar's mutton leg's getting musclebound from being too pulled. Noah

so orgibald. You'd have Colley Macaires on your lump of lead. Now listen, Mr
Leer! And stow that sweatyfunnyadams Simper! Take an old geeser who calls on
his skirt. Note his sleek hair, so elegant, tableau vivant.  He vows her  to
be his own honeylamb, swears they will be papa pals, by  Sam, and share good
times way down west in a  guaranteed happy lovenest when May moon she shines
and they twit twinkle all the night,  combing the comet's tail up right  and
shooting  popguns  at  the  stars.  Creampuffs  all  to  dime!  Every  nice,
missymackenzies! For dear old grumpapar, he's gone on the razzledar, through
gazing and crazing and blazing at the stars. Compree! She wants her wardrobe
to hear from above by return with cash so as she can buy her  Peter Robinson
trousseau and cut  a dash  with Arty, Bert  or  possibly Charley Chance (who

downright fond  of his number  one but O he's fair  mashed on peaches number
two so  that  if he  could only canoodle the  two,  chivee chivoo, all three
would feel genuinely happy, it's as  simple as  A. B. C., the two mixers, we

     Ack,  ack, ack. With which clap, trap and soddenment, three  to a loaf,
our mutual friends  the fender  and  the  bottle  at  the  gate  seem  to be
implicitly  in the  same bateau, so to  singen, bearing also several  of the
earmarks  of  design, for there is in  fact no use in  putting  a tooth in a
snipery of that  sort  and the amount of all those sort of things which  has

kinds  of promiscious individuals at  all ages in  private homes and reeboos

     But  resuming  inquiries.  Will  it  ever be  next  morning the  postal
unionist's  (officially called carrier's,  Letters Scotch, Limited)  strange
fate  (Fierceendgiddyex  he's  hight,  d.e.,  the  losel  that  hucks around
missivemaids' gummibacks) to hand in a huge chain envelope, written in seven

inbursts  of Maggyer always  seem semposed,  black  looking white and  white
guarding black, in that  siamixed twoatalk used  twist stern swift and jolly

it might now, mircle, so it  light. Always and ever  till Cox's wife,  twice
Mrs Hahn, pokes her beak into  the  matter with Owen K. after  her,  to  see
whawa smutter after, will this kiribis pouch filled with litterish fragments
lurk dormant in the paunch of that halpbrother of a herm, a pillarbox?
     The  coffin, a  triumph  of  the illusionist's  art,  at  first  blench
naturally taken for a  handharp (it is handwarp to  tristinguish jubabe from
jabule or either from tubote when all three have just been invened) had been
removed from  the hardware premises of Oetzmann and Nephew, a noted house of
the gonemost west,  which  in the natural course of  all things continues to
supply funeral requisites  of every  needed description. Why needed, though?
Indeed  needed (wouldn't you feel like rattanfowl if you hadn't the  oscar!)
because  the  flash brides or bride in their lily boleros one  games with at
the Nivynubies'  finery ball and your upright  grooms that always come right
up with you (and by jingo when they do!) what else in this mortal world, now
ours, when meet  there night, mid their  nackt, me there  naket, made  their
nought the  hour  strikes,  would bring them rightcame  back  in  the flesh,
thumbs down, to their orses and their hashes.
     To proceed. We might leave that nitrience of oxagiants to take its free
of  the air  and just analectralyse that  very chymerical  combination,  the
gasbag  where  the  warderworks.  And  try  to  pour  somour  heiterscene up
thealmostfere.  In  the bottled heliose case continuing, Long Lally Tobkids,
the  special,  sporting  a  fine  breast  of  medals,  and  a  conscientious
scripturereader to  boot  in the  brick  and tin choorch round the  coroner,
swore  like   a  Norewheezian  tailliur  on  the  stand  before  the  proper
functionary that he was  up against  a right querrshnorrt of  a  mand in the
butcher of the  blues  who,  he guntinued, on  last epening after delivering
some carcasses mattonchepps and meatjutes on behalf of Messrs Otto Sands and
Eastman,   Limericked,   Victuallers,   went   and,  with   his  unmitigated
astonissment, hickicked at the  dun and  dorass  against all the  runes and,
when  challenged  about the pretended hick (it was kickup and down with him)
on his  solemn  by  the  imputant imputed,  said  simply: I appop  pie oath,
Phillyps  Captain. You  did,  as  I sostressed  before. You are deepknee  in
error,  sir,  Madam  Tomkins,  let  me  then   tell  you,  replied  with   a
gentlewomanly salaam MackPartland, (the  meatman's family, and the oldest in
the world except nick, name.) And Phelps was  flayful with  his  peeler. But
his phizz fell.
     Now to the obverse. From  velveteens to dimities is barely a fivefinger
span and hence these camelback  excesses are thought to have been instigated
by one or  either of the causing causes of all, those rushy hollow  heroines
in their skirtsleeves, be she magretta be she the posque. Oh! Oh! Because it
is  a  horrible thing to have to  say to say  to day but one dilalah, Lupita
Lorette, shortly after in  a fit of the unexpectednesses drank carbolic with
all  her dear placid  life before her and paled off  while the  other soiled
dove  that's her  sister-in-love, Luperca  Latouche, finding  one  day while
dodging  chores  that she stripped teasily for binocular man  and  that  her
jambs were jimpjoyed to  see  each other, the nautchy  girly soon  found her
fruitful hat too small for her and rapidly taking time,look,she rapidly took
to  necking, partying and  selling  her  spare favours in the haymow  or  in
lumber closets or in  the greenawn ad huck  (there are certain intimacies in
all  ladies' lavastories we just  lease to  imagination)  or  in  the  sweet
churchyard  close itself for a bit of  soft coal or an array of thin trunks,
serving whom in  fine that same hot coney a la  Zingara which our own little
Graunya of the chilired cheeks dished up to the greatsire of Oscar, that son
of a Coole. Houri  of the coast  of emerald, arrah of the lacessive  poghue,

by the beer of his profit, he cannot answer. Upterputty till rise and shine!
Nor needs none shaft ne stele from Phenicia or Little Asia to obelise on the

been the expression, direct or through  an agent male, of womanhid offended,
(ah! ah!), has not levy of black mail from the times the fairies were in it,

     Now by memory inspired,  turn  wheel again  to the whole  of the  wall.
Where  Gyant Blyant fronts Peannlueamoore There  was once upon a  wall and a

(cadet) value of eightpence, to  grow old  and happy (hogg it  and kidd him)
for the reminants  of his years;  and  when everything was  got  up  for the
purpose  he  put an  applegate on the  place  by no means as some  pretext a
bedstead in  loo thereof to  keep out donkeys  (the pigdirt hanging from the
jags to  this  hour makes  that clear) and just thenabouts the iron gape, by
old  custom left  open to  prevent  the cats from getting at  the gout,  was
triplepatlockt on him on purpose by his faithful poorters to keep him inside
probably  and possibly enaunter he felt like  sticking out his chest too far

unused as he was yet to being freely clodded.
     O,  by  the  by,  lets  wee  brag  of praties,  it ought to  be  always
remembered  in  connection  with  what  has gone  before  that there  was  a
northroomer,  Herr Betreffender, out  for  his  zimmer  holedigs, digging in
number 32  at the  Rum and Puncheon (Branch of Dirty  Dick's  free house) in
Laxlip  (where the Sockeye Sammons were stopping at the time orange fasting)
prior  to  that, a Kommerzial  (Gorbotipacco, he was  wreaking  like Zentral

make  a  heart of  glass,  that the game of gaze and  bandstand butchery was
merely a Patsy O'Strap tissue  of threats  and obuses such as roebucks raugh

this  his isbar was  a public oven for the sake of irsk irskusky, and  then,
not easily discouraged, opened the wrathfloods of his atillarery and went on
at a wicked  rate, weathering against him in mooxed metaphores  from  eleven

     It was hard by the howe's there, plainly on this disoluded and a buchan
cold spot, rupestric  then,  resurfaced that now is,  that Luttrell sold  if

he mistook in the  heavy  rain to  be  Oglethorpe or some other ginkus, Parr

would  cannonise  the  b  -- y b -- r's life  out of  him  and  lay  him out

The   boarder   incident  prerepeated  itself.   The  pair  (whethertheywere
Nippoluono engaging Wei-Ling-Taou or  de Razzkias trying to reconnoistre the
general  Boukeleff,   man  may  not  say),  struggled  apairently  for  some
considerable  time,  (the cradle rocking equally to one  and oppositely from
the other  on  its law of capture  and  recapture),  under  the All In rules
around  the  booksafe,  fighting  like  purple  top  and  tipperuhry  Swede,
(Secremented  Servious of  the Divine  Zeal !)  and in the  course of  their
tussle the toller man, who had opened his bully bowl  to  beg,  said to  the
miner who was  carrying the  worm  (a handy term for the portable distillery
which  consisted  of  three vats, two  jars and  several  bottles  though we
purposely say  nothing of  the stiff, both parties having an interest in the
spirits): Let  me  go, Pautheen! I  hardly  knew  ye. Later  on,  after  the
solstitial pause for refleshmeant,  the same man (or a different and younger

chew-chin-grin: Was six victolios fifteen pigeon takee offa you, tell he me,

who, as stuck  as that cat to  that mouse in that tube of  that christchurch
organ, (did the imnage  of  Girl Cloud Pensive flout above  them light young

his shirt to tear, to know wanted, joking and knobkerries, all aside laying,

addling that hap so, he would pay him back the six vics odd, do you see, out
of that for what was taken on the man  of samples last  Yuni or Yuly, do you
follow me, Capn? To this the other, Billi with the Boule, who had mummed and
mauled  up  to  that (for he  was  hesitency  carried  to excelcism)  rather
amusedly replied:  Woowoo  would  you be  grossly surprised, Hill, to  learn
that, as it so happens, I honestly have not such a thing as  the loo, as the

you  anywhere,  Declaney,  let  me  truthfully tell  you in  or  out  of the
lexinction of life and who the hell else, be your blanche patch on the boney
part! Goalball I've struck this daylit dielate night of nights, by golly! My
hat, you  have  some  bully  German  grit,  sundowner! He spud  in his faust
(axin); he toped the raw best (pardun); he poked his pick (a tip is  a tap):
and he tucked his friend's  leave.And, with French hen or the  portlifowlium
of hastes and leisures, about to continue that,the  queer  mixture exchanged
the pax in embrace or poghue puxy as practised between  brothers of the same
breast,  hillelulia, killelulia, allenalaw, and, having  ratified before the
god  of the  day their torgantruce  which belittlers have schmallkalled  the
treatyng to cognac, turning his fez menialstrait in the direction of Moscas,
he first got rid  of a few mitsmillers  and hurooshoos and levanted off with
tubular  jurbulance at  a bull's  run over the  assback bridge,spitting  his
teeths on  rooths,with  the  seven and four in danegeld  and  their  humoral
hurlbat  or  other  uncertain  weapon  of  lignum  vitae,  but  so  evermore
rhumanasant  of  a  toboggan  poop,  picked up  to  keep  some  crowplucking
appointment  with some  rival  rialtos  anywheres between  Pearidge  and the
Littlehorn while this poor delaney, who they left along with the confederate
fender behind and who albeit ballsbluffed, bore up wonderfully wunder all of
it  with  a  whole  number of  plumsized contusiums,  plus  alasalah bruised
coccyx, all over him, reported  the occurance  in the best way he  could, to
the  flabbergaze  of  the  whole lab,  giving the Paddybanners  the military
salute  as  for  his  exilicy's the O'Daffy,  in  justifiable hope  that, in
nobiloroman  review  of  the  hugely   sitisfactuary  conclusium   of  their
negotiations and the jugglemonkysh agripment  deinderivative, some lotion or
fomentation  of  poppyheads would be jennerously exhibited to  the parts, at
the nearest  watchhouse  in Vicar Lane, the  white  ground of his  face  all
covered with digonally redcrossed nonfatal  mammalian blood as proofpositive
of  the seriousness  of his  character  and that  he  was bleeding  in  self
defience  (stanch it!) from  the nostrils, lips, pavilion and  palate, while
some  of  his  hitter's  hairs had been pulled off his  knut's head by  Colt
though  otherwise his allround  health appeared to be  middling along  as it
proved most fortunate that not one of the two hundred and six bones and five
hundred and one muscles in his corso was a whit the whorse for her whacking.
Herwho?
     Nowthen, leaving clashing ash, brawn  and  muscle and brassmade to oust
earthernborn and rockcrystal  to wreck isinglass but wurming along gradually
for our savings backtowards motherwaters so many  miles from bank and Dublin
stone  (olympiading   even  till  the   eleventh   dynasty  to  reach   that
thuddysickend Hamlaugh)  and to the question of boney's unlawfully obtaining
a pierced paraflamme  and claptrap fireguard there crops out the  still more
salient point of the politish leanings and town pursuits of our forebeer, El
Don  De Dunelli, (may his ship thicked stick in the  bottol of the river and
all  his crewsers stock locked in the burral of the seas!) who, when  within
the black of  your toenail,  sir, of being mistakenly ambushed by one of the
uddahveddahs,  and as close as made no  matter, mam, to being kayoed offhand
when the hyougono heckler with the Peter the Painter wanted to hole him, was
consistently  practising  the  first  of  the  primary  and  imprescriptible
liberties of the  pacific subject by circulating (be  British, boys  to your
bellybone  and  chuck  a  chum a chance!) alongst  one of our  umphrohibited
semitary thrufahrts, open  to buggy and bike, to walk, Wellington Park road,
with  the curb  or quaker's quacknostrum under his auxter and his alpenstuck
in his  redhand,  a highly commendable exercise, or, number  two of our acta
legitima  plebeia, on the  brink (beware to  baulk a man  at his  will!)  of
taking place upon a public seat, to what, bare by Butt's, most easterly (but
all goes west!) of blackpool bridges, as a public protest and naturlikevice,
without  intent  to  annoy  either,  being  praisegood  thankfully  for  the
wrathbereaved ringdove  and  the fearstung boaconstrictor and all  the  more
right jollywell pleased, which he was, at having other people's weather.
     But to return to the atlantic and Phenitia  Proper. As if that were not
to be enough for anyone but  little headway, if any, was made in solving the
wasnottobe  crime cunundrum when  a  child of Maam, Festy King, of a  family
long and honourably associated with the tar and feather industries, who gave
an address in old plomansch Mayo  of the Saxons in  the heart of a foulfamed
potheen district, was subsequently haled up at the Old Bailey on the calends
of Mars, under an incompatibly framed indictment of  both  the  counts (from
each  equinoxious points  of view, the  one fellow's  fetch being  the other
follow's  person)  that is to see, flying  cushats out  of his ouveralls and
making  fesses  immodst  his forces  on  the field.  Oyeh!  Oyeh!  When  the
prisoner,   soaked   in  methylated,  appeared  in   dry  dock,   appatently
ambrosiaurealised,  like  Kersse's  Korduroy  Karikature,  wearing,  besides
stains, rents  and  patches, his fight shirt, straw braces, souwester  and a
policeman's corkscrew  trowswers, all out of the true  (as he had  purposely
torn  up all  his  cymtrymanx bespokes  in the mamertime), deposing for  his
exution with all the fluors of sparse in the  royal Irish vocabulary how the
whole padderjagmartin tripiezite suet and all  the sulfeit  of copperas  had
fallen off him quatz unaccountably like the chrystalisations of Alum on Even
while he was trying for to stick fire to himcell, (in feacht he was dripping
as he found upon stripping for a pipkin ofmalt as he feared the coold raine)
it  was  attempted by the  crown (P.C.  Robort)  to show  that  King,  elois
Crowbar,  once known as Meleky,  impersonating  a climbing boy, rubbed  some
pixes  of  any luvial peatsmoor  o'er his  face,  plucks and  pussas, with a
clanetourf  as  the  best  means  of  disguising  himself  and  was  to  the
middlewhite fair in Mudford of  a Thoorsday,  feishts of  Peeler  and  Pole,
under the  illassumed names  of  Tykingfest and Rabworc  picked  by him  and
Anthony out of a  tellafun book, ellegedly  with a pedigree pig (unlicensed)
and  a hyacinth. They were  on that sea by the plain of Ir nine hundred  and
ninetynine  years  and  they  never  cried  crack  or  ceased  from  regular
paddlewicking till that they landed their two and a  trifling selves, amadst
camel  and  ass, greybeard and suckling,  priest and  pauper, matrmatron and
merrymeg, into the  meddle of the  mudstorm.  The gathering, convened by the
Irish Angricultural and  Prepostoral Ouraganisations, to help the Irish muck
to look his brother dane in the face  and attended thanks  to Larry by large
numbers,  of  christies  and  jew's  totems,  tospite  of  the  deluge,  was
distinctly of a scattery kind when the ballybricken he could get no good of,
after cockofthewalking  through  a  few  fancyfought  mains ate some of  the
doorweg,  the  pikey  later selling  the  gentleman  ratepayer  because she,
Francie's sister, that is to say,ate a whole side of his (the animal's) sty,
on a struggle Street, Qui Sta Troia,  in order to pay off, hiss or lick, six
doubloons fifteen arrears of his, the villain's not the rumbler's rent.
     Remarkable evidence  was given, anon,  by  an eye, ear, nose and throat
witness, whom Wesleyan chapelgoers suspected of being a plain clothes priest
W.P., situate at Nullnull, Medical Square, who,  upon  letting down his rice
and peacegreen coverdisk  and having been sullenly cautioned against yawning
while being  grilled, smiled (he had  had a onebumper  at  parting  from Mrs
Molroe  in  the  morning)  and  stated  to  his  eliciter  under  his  morse
mustaccents (gobbless!) that he  slept with a bonafides and that he would be
there  to remember  the filth of November,  hatinaring, rowdy O, which, with
the jiboulees of Juno and the dates of ould  lanxiety, was going, please the
Rainmaker, to decembs  within the ephemerides  of profane history,  all  one
with  Tournay,   Yetstoslay  and   Temorah,   and  one   thing  which  would
pigstickularly strike  a person of such sorely tried observational powers as
Sam, him  and Moffat, though  theirs not to reason why,  the striking  thing
about  it  was that he was patrified to see, hear,  taste  and smell, as his
time of night, how Hyacinth O'Donnell,  B.A., described in the calendar as a
mixer and  wordpainter, with part of a sivispacem (Gaeltact for dungfork) on
the  fair green at  the hour of twenty-four o'clock sought (the bullycassidy
of the friedhoffer!) to sack, sock, stab and  slaughter singlehanded another
two  of  the  old  kings,  Gush  Mac  Gale and  Roaring  O'Crian, Jr.,  both
changelings, unlucalised, of no address and in noncommunicables, between him
and whom, ever  since wallops before the Mise of Lewes, bad blood existed on
the ground of the boer's trespass on the bull or because  he firstparted his
polarbeeber  hair  in  twoways,  or  because  they  were   creepfoxed   andt
grousuppers over  a  nippy  in a  noveletta, or  because they  could not say
meace,  (mute and daft)  meathe. The litigants, he  said, local congsmen and
donalds, kings of the arans and the dalkeys, kings of mud and tory, even the
goat king of Killorglin, were egged on by  their supporters  in the shape of
betterwomen with bowstrung hair of Carrothagenuine ruddiness, waving crimson
petties  and  screaming  from  Isod's  towertop. There  were cries  from the
thicksets in  court and from the macdublins on the bohernabreen of: Mind the
bank from  Banagher, Mick,  sir! Prodooce O'Donner. Ay! Exhibit his  relics!
Bu!  Use  the tongue mor! Give lip less! But it  oozed out in Deadman's Dark
Scenery  Court through crossexanimation of the casehardened testis that when
and  where that knife  of  knifes the treepartied ambush  was  laid (roughly
spouting around half  hours  'twixt  dusk  in dawn,  by  Waterhose's  Meddle
Europeic  Time,  near  Stop  and  Think,  high  chief  evervirens  and  only
abfalltree in auld the land) there  was not as  much light  from the widowed
moon  as  would dim a  child's altar.  The mixer, accordingly,  was  bluntly
broached, and in the best basel  to boot, as  to whether he was one of those
lucky cocks for whom the audible-visible-gnosible-edible world existed. That
he was only too  cognitively  conatively cogitabundantly sure of it because,
living, loving, breathing and sleeping morphomelosophopancreates, as he most
significantly  did, whenever he thought he heard he  saw he felt  he  made a

meant? Cursed that he  suppoxed he  did.  Thos  Thoris,  Thomar's Thom?  The

when to the perplexedly uncondemnatory bench (whereon punic judgeship strove
with penal law) the senior king of all, Pegger Festy, as soon  as the  outer

declared in a loudburst of  poesy, through his Brythonic interpreter on  his

Wave bore it. Reed wrote of it. Syce ran with it. Hand tore it and wild went

again, the  four with them, setting  around upin their judges'  chambers, in
the muniment room, of their marshalsea, under  the suspices of Lally, around
their old traditional tables of the law like  Somany  Solans to talk it over
rallthesameagain. Well and druly dry. Suffering law the dring. Accourting to
king's evelyns.  So help her goat and kiss the bouc. Festives and highajinks
and jintyaun  and  her beetyrossy  bettydoaty  and not to forget now  a'duna
o'darnel. The four of them and  thank court now there were no  more of them.
So pass  the push for port  sake. Be it  soon. Ah ho! And  do you  remember,
Singabob,  the  badfather, the same,  the great Howdoyoucallem, and  his old
nickname,  Dirty Daddy Pantaloons, in his monopoleums, behind the war of the
two  roses, with Michael  Victory, the sheemen's preester,  before he caught
his paper  dispillsation  from the  poke, old Minace and Minster  York? Do I
mind?  I mind  the  gush  off  the  mon  like Ballybock  manure  works on  a
tradewinds day. And the O'Moyly gracies and the O'Briny rossies chaffing him
bluchface  and playing  him pranks. How do you  do, todo,  North Mister? Get
into  my way! Ah dearome  forsailoshe! Gone  over  the bays! When  ginabawdy
meadabawdy!  Yerra, why  would he heed that old  gasometer with his  hooping
coppin and his dyinboosycough and all the birds of the southside after  her,
Minxy Cunningham, their dear divorcee darling, jimmies and jonnies to be her
jo?  Hold  hard. There's three other corners to our isle's cork float. Sure,
'tis well I can telesmell  him  H2 C E3 that would take a township's  breath
away! Gob and I nose him too well as I do meself, heaving up the Kay Wall by
the  32  to  II with  his  limelooking  horsebags  full of  sesameseed,  the
Whiteside Kaffir,  and  his sayman's  effluvium and his  scentpainted voice,
puffing  out his thundering big brown cabbage! Pa! Thawt I'm glad a gull for
his  pawsdeen fiunn! Goborro,  sez  he,  Lankyshied! Gobugga  ye,  sez  I! O
breezes! I sniffed that lad  long  before anyone.  It was  when  I was in my
farfather  out  at  the  west  and  she  and  myself,  the  redheaded  girl,
firstnighting  down  Sycomore  Lane.  Fine  feelplay  we  had  of it mid the
kissabetts  frisking in the kool kurkle dusk of the lushiness. My perfume of
the  pampas, says she  (meaning me) putting  out  her  netherlights, and I'd
sooner  one  precious  sip  at  your  pure  mountain  dew  than   enrich  my
acquaintance with that big brewer's belch.
     And  so they  went  on, the fourbottle men,  the analists,  unguam  and
nunguam and lunguam again, their  anschluss  about  her whosebefore  and his
whereafters  and how  she  was  lost  away away in the fern  and how  he was
founded deap on deep in anear, and the rustlings and the twitterings and the
raspings  and the  snappings  and  the sighings and  the  paintings  and the
ukukuings  and  the   (hist!)  the  springapartings  and  the   (hast!)  the
bybyscuttlings  and all the scandalmunkers  and the pure craigs that used to
be (up) that time  living and  lying  and rating  and riding round Nunsbelly
Square.  And all  the  buds  in the bush.  And the laughing  jackass. Harik!
Harik! Harik! The  rose is  white  in the darik! And Sunfella's nose has got
rhinoceritis  from haunting the roes  in  the parik! So all  rogues  lean to
rhyme. And contradrinking themselves about Lillytrilly law pon hilly and Mrs
Niall of the  Nine Corsages and the old markiss their besterfar, and, arrah,
sure there was  never a marcus at all at all among  the manlies and dear Sir
Armoury, queer Sir  Rumoury, and the old  house by the  churpelizod, and all
the goings on so very  wrong long before when they were going on retreat, in
the old  gammeldags, the four of them, in Milton's  Park under lovely Father
Whisperer and making her love with his stuffstuff in the languish of flowers
and feeling to find was she mushymushy, and wasn't  that vely both of  them,
the saucicissters, a drahereen o machree !, and (peep !) meeting waters most
improper (peepette!)  ballround the garden, trickle trickle  trickle  triss,
please, miman, may I go flirting? farmers  gone  with a  groom and  how they
used her, mused  her, licksed her and  cuddled. I differ  with  ye ! Are you
sure of yourself  now?  You're a liar,  excuse me!  I  will  not  and you're
another!  And  Lully holding their breach of the peace for them.  Pool  loll
Lolly!  To give  and  to  take!  And to forego  the  pasht!  And all will be
forgotten! Ah ho! It was too too bad to  be falling  out  about her kindness
pet and the shape of O O O O  O O O O Ourang's time. Well, all right, Lelly.
And shakeahand. And schenkusmore. For Craig sake. Be it suck.
     Well?
     Well, even should not the framing up of such figments in the evidential
order bring the true truth to  light as fortuitously as a dim seer's setting
of  a  starchart  might (heaven  helping  it!)  uncover  the nakedness of an
unknown body in the fields of blue or as forehearingly as the sibspeeches of
all  mankind  have  foliated (earth seizing  them!)  from the  root  of some
funner's  stotter all the soundest sense  to  be found  immense  our special
mentalists now  holds (securus  iudicat orbis terrarum) that by such playing
possum  our  hagious  curious  encestor bestly  saved  his  brush  with  his
posterity, you, charming coparcenors,  us, heirs of  his tailsie. Gundogs of
all breeds were beagling with renounced urbiandorbic bugles, hot to run him,
given  law,  on a scent breasthigh, keen for the worry. View! From his  holt
outratted across the Juletide's  genial corsslands of  Humfries  Chase  from
Mullinahob  and  Peacockstown,  then bearing right  upon  Tankardstown,  the
outlier, a white noelan which  Mr Loewensteil Fitz Urse's basset beaters had
first  misbadgered for  a  bruin of some  swart,  led bayers the  run,  then
through Raystown  and  Horlockstown and, louping  the loup,  to Tankardstown
again. Ear canny  hare  for  doubling through Cheeverstown they  raced  him,
through  Loughlinstown and Nutstown to wind him by the Boolies. But from the
good turn when he last was lost,  check, upon Ye Hill of Rut in  full winter
coat with ticker pads, pointing for his rooming house his old nordest in his
rolltoproyal  hessians a deaf fuchser's  volponism hid him close in  covert,
miraculously  ravenfed  and  buoyed  up,  in  rumer,  reticule,  onasum  and
abomasum, upon (may Allbrewham have his mead!) the  creamclotted  sherriness
of  cinnamon  syllabub,  Mikkelraved, Nikkelsaved.  Hence hounds  hied home.
Preservative perseverance  in  the  reeducation  of his intestines  was  the
rebuttal  by  whilk he sort of git  the big  bulge on  the  whole  bunch  of
spasoakers, dieting  against glues and gravies,  in  that sometime prestreet
protown. Vainly violence, virulence and vituperation sought wellnigh utterly
to  attax and  abridge, to  derail  and depontify, to enrate and  inroad, to
ongoad and unhume the great shipping mogul and underlinen overlord.
     But  the spoil  of hesitants, the spell of  hesitency. His  atake is it
ashe,  tittery  taw  tatterytail,  hasitense  humponadimply, heyheyheyhey  a
winceywencky.
     Assembly men murmured. Reynard is slow!
     One feared for his days. Did there yawn? 'Twas his stommick. Eruct? The
libber. A  gush? From his visuals.  Pung? Delivver him, orelode! He had laid
violent hands on himself, it was brought in  Fugger's Newsletter, lain down,
all  in,fagged out,  with  equally melancholy  death.  For  the  triduum  of
Saturnalia  his goatservant had  paraded hiz  willingsons in the Forum while
the  jenny infanted the lass to  be greeted  raucously (the Yardstated) with
houx and epheus and measured with missiles too from a hundred of manhood and
a  wimmering of weibes.  Big  went  the  bang:  then wildewide  was quiet: a
report:  silence: last  Fama put  it under ether. The  noase or the loal had
dreven  him  blem,  blem, stun blem. Sparks  flew.  He had fled  again (open
shunshema!)  this   country  of  exile,  sloughed  off,sidleshomed  via  the
subterranean shored  with  bedboards, stowed  away and  ankered  in  a dutch
bottom tank, the Arsa, hod S.S. Finlandia, and was even now occupying, under
an  islamitic newhame in his seventh  generation,  a physical body Cornelius
Magrath's  (badoldkarakter,  commonorrong canbung)  in Asia Major, where  as
Turk of the theater (first house all flatty: the king, eleven sharps) he had
bepiastered the buikdanseuses from the opulence of his omnibox while as arab
at  the  streetdoor  he  bepestered the bumbashaws for the  alms of a para's
pence.  Wires   hummed.   Peacefully   general   astonishment  assisted   by
regrettitude had put a term till his  existence: he saw the family saggarth,
resigned, put off his remainders, was recalled and scrapheaped by the Maker.
Chirpings  crossed.  An  infamous  private ailment  (vulgovarioveneral)  had
claimed  endright,  closed his  vicious  circle,  snap. Jams jarred.  He had
walked  towards the middle of an ornamental lilypond when innebriated up  to
the point where braced  shirts meet  knickerbockers,  as wangfish daring the
buoyant  waters,  when rodmen's firstaiding hands had rescued  un from  very
possibly several feel of  demifrish  water. Mush spread. On  Umbrella Street
where  he did drinks  from a pumps a kind workman,  Mr  Whitlock, gave him a
piece of wood. What words of power were made  fas between them, ekenames and
auchnomes, acnomina ecnumina? That, O  that, did  Hansard tell us, would gar
ganz Dub's ear  wag in every pub  of all the  citta! Batty  believes a baton

     Wherefore let it hardly by any being thinking be said either or thought
that the prisoner of that sacred edifice, were he an Ivor the Boneless or an
Olaf the Hide, was at his  best a onestone  parable, a rude breathing on the
void  of to be, a venter hearing his own bauchspeech in backwords, or,  more
strictly,  but  tristurned initials, the cluekey to  a worldroom beyond  the

     The proteiform graph itself  is a polyhedron  of scripture. There was a
time  when  naif  alphabetters would have written  it down the  tracing of a
purely  deliquescent recidivist, possibly  ambidextrous,  snubnosed probably
and presenting a strangely profound rainbowl in his (or her) occiput. To the
hardily  curiosing  entomophilust  then it  has  shown a  very sexmosaic  of
nymphosis in which the eternal chimerahunter Oriolopos, now frond of sugars,
then  lief of saults, the sensory crowd in his belly coupled with an eye for
the goods trooth bewilderblissed  by  their night  effluvia  with guns  like
drums and fondlers like forceps persequestellates his vanessas from flore to
flore.  Somehows  this  sounds  like  the  purest  kidooleyoon  wherein  our
madernacerution  of lour lore  is  rich.  All's so  herou from  us him in  a
kitchernott darkness, by hasard and worn rolls arered, we must grope on till
Zerogh  hour like pou owl giaours as we  are would we salve aught of moments
for our aysore today.  Amousin  though  not  but.  Closer inspection of  the
bordereau  would  reveal a multiplicity of  personalities  inflicted  on the
documents or document and some prevision of virtual crime or crimes might be
made by anyone unwary enough before any suitable occasion for it or them had
so far  managed to  happen  along. In  fact,  under the  closed  eyes of the
inspectors   the   traits  featuring   the   chiaroscuro   coalesce,   their
contrarieties  eliminated,  in  one  stable  somebody  similarly  as  by the
providential  warring of heartshaker  with housebreaker  and of  dramdrinker
against freethinker our social something bowls along bumpily, experiencing a
jolting series of  prearranged disappointments, down the  long lane of (it's

     Say, baroun lousadoor, who  in hallhagal  wrote the  durn thing anyhow?
Erect,  beseated,  mountback, against a partywall, below freezigrade, by the
use  of  quill  or  style, with turbid or pellucid  mind, accompanied or the
reverse by mastication, interrupted by visit of seer to scribe or  of scribe
to site, atwixt  two showers  or  atosst of  a trike, rained  upon or  blown
around,  by  a rightdown regular  racer  from  the soil or by a  too  pained
whittlewit laden with the loot of learning?
     Now, patience; and remember patience is the great thing, and  above all
things else we must avoid anything like being or becoming out of patience. A
good plan used by worried business folk who  may not have had many momentums
to  master Kung's  doctrine of  the meang or  the  propriety codestruces  of
Carprimustimus  is  just  to  think  of  all  the sinking fund  of  patience
possessed  in  their conjoint  names  by both  brothers  Bruce with whom are
incorporated their Scotch  spider  and Elberfeld's  Calculating  Horses.  If
after years  upon years of delving in ditches dark  one tubthumper more than
others, Kinihoun or Kahanan, giardarner  or mear measenmanonger,  has got up
for the darnall  same purpose of reassuring  us  with all the  barbar of the
Carrageehouse that our great ascendant was properly speaking three syllables
less than his own surname (yes, yes, less!), that the ear of Fionn Earwicker
aforetime was the trademark of a broadcaster with wicker local jargon for an
ace's  patent  (Hear! Calls!  Everywhair!) then as to  this radiooscillating
epiepistle  to  which, cotton, silk or samite, kohol,  gall or brickdust, we

     Naysayers  we  know. To  conclude  purely negatively from  the positive
absence of  political odia and monetary requests that its  page cannot  ever
have been  a penproduct  of a man or woman of that period  or those parts is
only  one  more  unlookedfor  conclusion  leaped  at,  being  tantamount  to
inferring  from  the  nonpresence  of   inverted  commas  (sometimes  called
quotation marks) on any page  that its  author  was always  constitutionally
incapable of misappropriating the spoken words of others.
     Luckily there is another cant  to the  questy. Has any fellow,  of  the
dime a dozen  type,  it might with some profit  some dull evening quietly be
hinted--has  any usual sort  of ornery josser, flatchested fortyish, faintly
flatulent and  given to ratiocination by syncopation in  the elucidation  of
complications,of his greatest  Fung Yang dynasdescendanced,only  another the
son of, in fact, ever  looked sufficiently longly at a quite everydaylooking
stamped addressed envelope? Admittedly it is an outer husk: its face, in all
its featureful perfection of imperfection, is  its fortune: it exhibits only
the  civil  or  military  clothing  of  whatever  passionpallid  nudity   or
plaguepurple nakedness may happen  to  tuck  itself under  its flap.  Yet to
concentrate solely on the literal sense or even the psychological content of
any  document  to  the  sore neglect  of  the  enveloping  facts  themselves
circumstantiating it is just as hurtful to sound sense (and  let it be added
to the truest taste)  as were some fellow  in  the act of perhaps getting an
intro from another fellow turning out to be a friend in need of his, say, to
a lady of  the latter's  acquaintance, engaged in performing the elaborative
antecistral ceremony  of upstheres, straightaway to run off  and vision  her
plump  and  plain  in  her  natural  altogether,  preferring  to  close  his
blinkhard's  eyes to the ethiquethical fact that she was, after all, wearing
for the space of  the time  being  some  definite  articles of  evolutionary
clothing, inharmonious creations, a  captious critic might describe them as,
or not strictly necessary or a trifle irritating here and there, but for all
that suddenly full of local colour and personal perfume and suggestive, too,
of so very much more and capable of  being stretched, filled out, if need or
wish  were, of  having their surprisingly like coincidental  parts separated
don't they now, for  better survey by the deft  hand of an expert, don't you
know? Who in his  heart doubts either that the facts of feminine clothiering
are  there all  the time or  that the  feminine fiction,  stranger than  the
facts, is  there also at the same time, only  a little  to the rere? Or that
one  may be separated from the  other? Or that both may then be contemplated
simultaneously?  Or that each  may be taken up and considered in turn  apart
from the other?
     Here let a few artifacts fend in  their  own favour. The river felt she
wanted salt.  That  was  just where  Brien  came  in.  The country asked for
bearspaw for dindin! And boundin aboundin it got it surly. We who live under

     About  that original hen. Midwinter (fruur  or kuur?) was in the offing
and  Premver  a promise of  a pril when,  as  kischabrigies sang  life's old
sahatsong, an  iceclad shiverer,  merest  of bantlings observed a  cold fowl
behaviourising   strangely  on  that   fatal  midden   or  chip  factory  or
comicalbottomed  copsjute  (dump  for  short)  afterwards changed  into  the
orangery when in the course of deeper demolition unexpectedly one  bushman's
holiday its  limon threw up a few spontaneous fragments  of orangepeel,  the
last  remains of  an outdoor meal  by some  unknown sunseeker  or placehider
illico way  back  in his  mistridden past. What child  of a strandlooper but
keepy little Kevin in the despondful surrounding of such sneezing cold would
ever have trouved up  on a strate that was called strete a motive for future
saintity by euchring the  finding  of the  Ardagh  chalice by  another heily

ancient Irish pleasant pottery of that  lydialike languishing class known as

     Why then how?
     Well,  almost any photoist  worth  his chemicots will tip anyone asking
him the teaser  that if a  negative of  a horse happens to melt enough while
drying, well, what  you do get is,  well, a positively grotesquely distorted
macromass of all sorts  of horsehappy values and  masses of meltwhile horse.
Tip. Well, this freely is what  must have occurred to our missive (there's a
sod of  a  turb for  you!  please wisp  off the grass!)  unfilthed  from the
boucher by the sagacity of  a lookmelittle likemelong hen.  Heated residence
in  the  heart of the  orangeflavoured mudmound  had  partly obliterated the
negative to start with, causing some features palpably nearer your pecker to
be swollen up  most grossly while  the farther back  we manage to wiggle the
more we need the loan of a lens to see as much as the hen saw. Tip.
     You is feeling like  you was  lost in  the bush, boy? You says: It is a

sir, her  volucrine automutativeness  right on normalcy: she knows, she just
feels she was kind  of born to lay and love eggs (trust her to propagate the
species and  hoosh her fluffballs  safe through din and danger!); lastly but
mostly, in her genesic field it  is all game and no gammon; she is  ladylike
in  everything  she does and plays the gentleman's part  every  time. Let us
auspice it! Yes, before all this has  time to end the golden age must return
with  its vengeance.  Man will become dirigible,  Ague  will be rejuvenated,
woman  with  her ridiculous white  burden  will  reach  by  one step sublime
incubation,  the  manewanting human lioness  with her  dishorned  discipular
manram will lie down  together  publicly flank  upon  fleece. No, assuredly,
they are  not justified, those  gloompourers  who grouse  that  letters have
never  been quite  their old selves again since  that weird weekday in bleak

Still. One  cannot help noticing that rather more than half of the lines run
north-south  in the Nemzes and Bukarahast  directions while  the  others  go
west-east  in  search from Maliziies with  Bulgarad for,  tiny tot though it
looks when schtschupnistling alongside  other incunabula,it has its cardinal
points for all that. These ruled barriers along which the traced words, run,
march,  halt,  walk,  stumble  at  doubtful  points,  stumble  up  again  in
comparative safety seem to have been drawn  first of all in a pretty checker
with lampblack and blackthorn. Such crossing is antechristian of course, but
the use of the homeborn shillelagh as an aid to calligraphy shows a distinct
advance from savagery to  barbarism. It  is seriously believed by some  that
the  intention may  have  been geodetic, or,  in  the  view of the  cannier,
domestic economical.  But by  writing thithaways  end  to  end and  turning,
turning  and  end  to  end  hithaways  writing and  with  lines  of  litters

     Another  point,  in  addition  to  the original  sand,  pounce  powder,
drunkard paper or soft rag used (any vet or inhanger in ous sot's social can
see the seen for seemself, a wee ftofty od room,  the  cheery spluttered  on

sort of softball sucker motru used to tell us when we were all biribiyas  or
nippies and messas)  it has acquired  accretions of terricious matter whilst
loitering in the past. The teatimestained terminal (say not the tag, mummer,
or  our show's a failure!) is a cosy  little brown study all to oneself and,
whether it be thumbprint, mademark  or just a poor trait of the artless, its
importance in  establishing  the identities in the  writer complexus (for if
the hand was one,  the minds  of active and agitated were more than so) will
be best  appreciated  by  never  forgetting that both  before and  after the
battle of the Boyne it was  a habit not to sign letters always. Tip.  And it
is  surely a lesser ignorance to write a word  with every consonant too  few
than to add  all too  many.  The  end? Say it with  missiles  then  and thus
arabesque  the  page. You  have your  cup of scalding Souchong, your taper's
waxen drop, your cat's paw, the clove or coffinnail you chewed or champed as
you  worded it, your lark in clear air. So why, pray,  sign anything as long
as every word, letter,  penstroke, paperspace is a perfect signature  of its
own? A  true friend is known much more easily, and better into the  bargain,
by  his personal touch,  habits  of full or undress, movements,  response to
appeals for charity than by his  footwear, say. And, speaking anent Tiberias
and other incestuish salacities among  gerontophils, a word of warning about
the tenderloined passion hinted at. Some softnosed peruser might mayhem take
it  up  erogenously as  the  usual case of spoons, prostituta in herba  plus

so wider but we grisly old Sykos who have done our unsmiling bit on 'alices,

care  to sell our feebought silence in camera) tell our very moistnostrilled
one that father in such virgated contexts is not always that undemonstrative
relative (often held up  to our contumacy) who  settles our hashbill  for us
and what  an innocent allabroad's adverb such as Michaelly looks like can be
suggestive  of  under the  pudendascope  and, finally,  what  a  neurasthene
nympholept,   endocrine-pineal   typus,   of   inverted  parentage   with  a
prepossessing  drauma  present  in her past and a priapic  urge for congress
with  agnates  before  cognates  fundamentally  is  feeling  for  under  her
lubricitous meiosis when she refers with liking to  some feeler she fancie's

horses, for  we also know, what we have perused from the pages of  I  Was  A
Gemral, that  Showting up  of  Bulsklivism  by  'Schottenboum',  that Father
Michael about this red time of  the white terror equals the old  regime  and
Margaret is the social revolution while cakes mean the party funds and  dear
thank you signifies national  gratitude.  In  fine,  we  have heard,  as  it
happened, of Spartacus intercellular. We are not corknered yet,dead hand! We

once for  all  done  and there you are somewhere  and finished  in a certain
time, be it a day or a year or even supposing, it should eventually turn out
to be a serial  number of  goodness  gracious alone knows  how  many days or
years. Anyhow, somehow and somewhere, before the bookflood or after her ebb,
somebody  mentioned  by name  in  his telephone  directory,  Coccolanius  or
Gallotaurus, wrote  it, wrote it all, wrote it  all down, and there you are,
full  stop. O, undoubtedly yes,  and  very  potably  so, but one  who deeper
thinks  will always bear  in the baccbuccus of his mind that this  downright
there you are and there it is is only all in his eye. Why?
     Because, Soferim  Bebel, if  it  goes to that, (and dormerwindow gossip
will cry it from the housetops no surelier than the writing on the wall will
hue it to the mod of  men that mote in the  main street) every person, place
and thing in the  chaosmos  of Alle anyway connected  with  the gobblydumped
turkery was  moving and  changing  every  part of  the time: the  travelling
inkhorn (possibly pot), the hare and turtle pen  and paper, the  continually
more and less intermisunderstanding  minds of the  anticollaborators, the as
time  went on  as  it  will  variously  inflected,  differently  pronounced,
otherwise spelled,  changeably meaning vocable  scriptsigns. No, so  holp me
Petault, it is not a miseffectual whyacinthinous riot of blots and blurs and
bars and  balls and hoops and  wriggles  and juxtaposed  jottings  linked by
spurts of speed: it only looks  as like  it  as damn it; and, sure, we ought
really to rest thankful that at  this deleteful hour of dungflies dawning we
have even a written on  with dried ink scrap of  paper  at all to  show  for
ourselves,  tare  it  or leaf  it,  (and  we are lufted to ourselves as  the
soulfisher when he  led the cat out of the bout) after  all that we lost and
plundered of it even  to the hidmost  coignings of the earth and all  it has
gone through and  by all means, after  a good ground  kiss to Terracussa and
for wars  luck our lefftoff's flung over our home homoplate, cling  to it as
with drowning hands, hoping against hope all the while that, by the light of
philophosy, (and may she never folsage  us!) things will begin to clear up a
bit one way  or another within the next quarrel of an hour and  be hanged to
them as  ten  to one they  will  too, please the  pigs,  as  they  ought  to
categorically, as,  stricly between ourselves,there is a limit to all things
so this will never do.

     The unmistaken identity of the persons in the  Tiberiast duplex came to
light  in  the  most devious of ways. The  original document was  in what is
known as Hanno O'Nonhanno's unbrookable script, that is to say, it showed no
signs  of punctuation  of any sort. Yet on holding the  verso against a  lit
rush  this new book of Morses responded most remarkably  to the silent query
of our world's oldest  light and its recto let out the piquant fact  that it
was but pierced butnot punctured  (in the university sense of the  term)  by
numerous stabs and foliated gashes made by a pronged instrument. These paper
wounds, four in type, were gradually and correctly  understood to mean stop,
please  stop, do  please stop,  and  O  do  please  stop  respectively,  and

weep smelling, they smell  smiling, they smile hating, they  hate  thinking,
they  think  feeling,  they  feel tempting,  they  tempt  daring, they  dare

     Answer:  I know,  pepette,  of course, dear,  but  listen,  precious  !
Thanks, pette, those are lovely,  pitounette,  delicious! But mind the wind,
sweet! What exquisite hands you have,  you angiol, if  you didn't  gnaw your
nails,  isn't it a  wonder you're not achamed  of me, you  pig,  you perfect
little  pigaleen!  I'll nudge  you  in a minute  ! I  bet you  use her  best
Perisian  smear off  her  vanity table to make them look so rosetop glowstop
nostop. I know  her.  Slight me,  would  she?  For every got  I care!  Three
creamings a day, the first during her shower and wipe  off with tissue. Then
after cleanup and of  course before  retiring. Beme shawl, when I  think  of
that espos of a Clancarbry, the foodbrawler,  of the sociationist party with
hiss blackleaded chest, hello, Prendregast! that you, Innkipper, and all his
fourteen other  fullback maulers or hurling stars or whatever the dagos they
are, baiting  at my Lord  Ornery's, just becups they won  the egg  and spoon
there so ovally provencial at Balldole. My  Eilish assent he seed  makes his
admiracion. He is seeking  an opening  and means to be  first with me as his
belle  alliance. Andoo  musnoo play zeloso! Soso do todas. Such  is Spanish.
Stoop alittle closer, fealse! Delightsome simply!  Like Jolio and Romeune. I
haven't  fell  so turkish  for ages  and  ages! Mine's me of squisious,  the
chocolate  with a soul. Extraordinary! Why, what are they all, the mucky lot
of them only? Sht! I  wouldn't pay  three hairpins for  them. Peppt!  That's
rights, hold it steady! Leg me pull. Pu! Come big to Iran. Poo! What are you
nudging for? No, I just  thought you were. Listen, loviest! Of course it was
too  kind of  you,  miser,  to remember  my sighs  in  shockings,  my  often
expressed  wish when  you were wandering about my  trousseaurs and before  I
forget it don't forget, in your extensions to  my personality, when knotting
my remembrancetie, shoeweek will be trotting back with red  heels at the end
of  the  moon but look what  the fool  bought  cabbage head  and, as I shall
answer  to gracious  heaven,  I'll always  in always remind  of  snappy  new
girters, me being always the  one for charms with  my very best in proud and
gloving  even  if  he was  to be vermillion miles my  youth to live on,  the
rubberend  Mr  Polkingtone,  the  quonian  fleshmonger   who  Mother  Browne
solicited me for unlawful converse  with, with her mug of October (a pots on
it!),  creaking around on his  old shanksaxle like  a crosty old  cornquake.
Airman, waterwag, terrier, blazer! I'm fine, thanks ever! Ha! O mind you poo

Sink her! May they fire  her  for a barren ewe ! So she says:  Tay for thee?
Well, I saith: Angst so mush: and  desired she might not  take it amiss if I
esteemed  her  but an odd. If I did  ate toughturf I'm not a  mishymissy. Of
course I  know, pettest, you're so  learningful and considerate in yourself,
so friend of vegetables, you long cold cat you! Please by acquiester to meek
my acquointance! Codling, snakelet, iciclist! My diaper has more life to it!
Who drowned you in drears, man, or are you  pillale with ink? Did a weep get
past the gates of your  pride? My tread  on the clover, sweetness? Yes,  the
buttercups told me, hug me, damn it all,  and I'll kiss you back to life, my
peachest. I mean to make you suffer, meddlar, and  I don't care this fig for
contempt of courting. That I chid you,sweet sir? You know I'm  tender  by my
eye. Can't  you read by  dazzling ones  through me true? Bite  my laughters,
drink my tears. Pore into me, volumes, spell me stark and spill me swooning.
I just don't care what my thwarters think. Transname  me loveliness, now and
here  me for  all times ! I'd risk a  policeman passing  by, Magrath or even
that beggar  of a  boots at the Post. The flame? O, pardone!  That was what?
Ah,  did  you  speak,  stuffstuff?  More poestries  from  Chickspeer's  with
gleechoreal music or a  jaculation from the garden of the soul. Of I be leib
in  the immoralities? O, you mean the strangle for love and the sowiveall of
the prettiest? Yep, we open hap coseries in the home. And once upon a week I
improve on myself I'm so  keen on that New Free Woman with novel inside. I'm
always as tickled as can be over Man  in a Surplus by the Lady  who Pays the
Rates. But I'm as pie as is possible. Let's root out Brimstoker and give him
the thrall of our lives. It's Dracula's nightout. For creepsake don't make a
flush! Draw the shades, curfe you, and I'll beat any sonnamonk to love. Holy
bug, how my highness would jump to make you flame your halve a bannan in two
when I'd run my burning torchlight through (to adore me there and then cease
to be?  Whatever  for, blossoms?) Your  hairmejig if you  had  one. If  I am
laughing with you? No, lovingest, I'm not  so dying to take  my  rise out of
you,  adored. Not in the  very  least. True as God  made  my Mamaw hiplength
modesty coatmawther! It's only  because the rison is I'm only any girl,  you
lovely fellow  of my dreams, and because old somebooby  is not a roundabout,
my trysting of the tulipies,  like that puff  pape bucking Daveran assoiling
us behinds.  What a  nerve! He thinks  that's  what the vesprey's  for.  How
vain's that hope  in cleric's  heart  Who still  pursues th'adult' rous art,
Cocksure that rusty gown  of his Will make  fair  Sue forget his  phiz! Tame
Schwipps. Blessed Marguerite bosses,  I  hope  they threw away the  mould or
else  we'll  have  Ballshossers  and  Sourdamapplers   with  their   medical
assassiations all over the  place. But  hold hard till  I've got my latchkey
vote and I'll teach him when to wear what  woman callours. On account of the
gloss of the gleison Hasaboobrawbees  isabeaubel. And because, you pluckless
lankaloot,  I  hate the very  thought of the  thought of  you  and  because,
dearling, of  course, adorest, I was always meant for an engindear from  the
French college, to be musband,  nomme d'engien, when we do and contract with
encho  tencho  solver  when  you  are  married to  reading and writing which
pleasebusiness now  won't be long for he's so loopy  on me and  I'm so leapy
like since the day he carried me from the boat, my saviored of eroes, to the
beach and I left on his shoulder one fair hair to guide hand and mind to its
softness.  Ever  so  sorry! I beg  your pardon,  I  was  listening to  every
treasuried word I said  fell from my dear mot's tongue otherwise how could I
see what  you were thinking of our granny? Only I wondered if I threw out my
shaving  water.  Anyway, here's my  arm, pulletneck. Gracefully yours.  Move
your  mouth  towards  minth, more, preciousest,  more on more! To please me,
treasure.  Don't be  a, I'm not going to! Sh!  nothing!  A cricri somewhere!
Buybuy!  I'm fly!  Hear,  pippy, under  the limes. You know  bigtree are all

chirrup, cigolo, for the lug of Migo!  The little passdoor, I go you before,
so,  and you're at  my apron  stage. Shy is him, dovey? Musforget there's an

toot-a-toot. Hearhere! Sensation! Let them, their whole four courtships! Let
them, Bigbawl  and  his boosers'  eleven  makes twelve territorials. The Old
Sot's Hole  that wants wide streets to commission their noisense in,  at the
Mitchells  v.  Nicholls. Aves Selvae  Acquae Valles!  And my waiting  twenty
classbirds, sitting on their stiles! Let me finger  their  eurhythmytic. And
you'll see if I'm selfthought. They're all  of them out  to please. Wait! In
the  name of. And all  the holly.  And some the  mistle  and it Saint  Yves.
Hoost! Ahem! There's Ada, Bett, Celia,  Delia,  Ena,  Fretta,  Gilda, Hilda,

Nippa, Opsy,  Poll,  Queeniee, Ruth, Saucy, Trix, Una,  Vela, Wanda,  Xenia,
Yva, Zulma, Phoebe, Thelma. And Mee! The  reformatory boys is goaling in for
the  church  so  we've  all  comefeast  like  the  groupsuppers  and  caught
lipsolution from Anty Pravidance under penancies for myrtle sins. When their
bride  was married all my belles  began  ti  ting. A ring a ring a rosaring!
Then everyone  will hear of it. Whoses wishes is the farther to my thoughts.
But  I'll  plant them a poser for their nomanclatter. When they're out  with
the daynurse doing Chaperon  Mall.  Bright pigeons all over the whirrld will
fly with my  mistletoe message round their loveribboned necks and d crumb of
my cake for each  chasta dieva.  We  keeps  all and sundry  papers.  In  th'
amourlight, O  my darling! No, I swear to you  by Fibsburrow  churchdome and
Sainte Andr'e's  Undershift, by all I hold  secret from  my world and in  my
underworld of nighties and naughties and all  the other wonderwearlds! Close
your, notmust look! Now open, pet, your lips, pepette, like I used  my sweet
parted lipsabuss  with Dan Holohan of facetious memory taught me  after  the
flannel dance, with the proof of  love, up Smock  Alley  the first night  he
smelled pouder and I coloured beneath my  fan, pipetta mia, when you learned
me the linguo to melt. Whowham  would have ears like ours,  the blackhaired!
Do you  like that, silenzioso? Are you  enjoying,  this  same little  me, my
life, my love? Why do  you  like my whisping? Is it not divinely deluscious?
But in't it bafforyou? Misi misi! Tell me till my thrillme comes! I will not
break the seal. I am enjoying it still, I swear  I am! Why do you prefer its
in  these dark nets, if  why  may  ask,  my  sweetykins? Sh  sh! Longears is
flying. No, sweetissest, why would that ennoy me? But don't! You  want to be
slap well slapped  for that. Your delighted lips, love, be  careful! Mind my
duvetyne  dress above  all!  It's  golded  silvy, the newest  sextones  with
princess effect. For Rutland blue's got out of  passion. So, so, my precious
! O,  I can see the cost, chare! Don't tell me! Why, the boy in sheeps' lane
knows that. If I sell whose,  dears? Was I sold here' tears?  You mean those
conversation  lozenges? How  awful!  The bold  shame  of  me  !  I wouldn't,
chickens, not for all  the juliettes in the twinkly  way!  I could snap them
when I see them winking at me in bed. I didn't  did so, my  intended, or was
going  to or  thinking  of. Shshsh!  Don't  start like  that, you  wretch! I
thought ye knew all and more, ye aucthor, to explique to ones the significat
of their exsystems with your nieu nivulon lead. It's only another queer fish
or other in Brinbrou's damned  old trouchorous  river again, Gothewishegoths
bless  us  and  spare her! And  gibos rest from  the  bosso ! Excuse me  for
swearing,  love, I swear to  the sorrasims  on their trons of Uian I  didn't
mean to by  this alpin  armlet!  Did you really never  in all our  cantalang
lives speak clothse to a girl's before? No! Not even to the charmermaid? How
marfellows! Of course I believe you, my own dear doting liest, when you tell
me.  As I'd  live to, O, I'd love to! Liss,  liss!  I muss whiss! Never that
ever or I can remember dearstreaming faces,  you may go through me! Never in
all my whole white life of my matchless and pair. Or ever  for bitter be the
frucht  of this hour! With my whiteness I thee woo and bind my silk breasths
I  thee bound!  Always,  Amory,  amor  andmore!  Till  always,  thou lovest!
Shshshsh! So long as the lucksmith. Laughs!
     II. If  you met on  the  binge a poor acheseyeld from Ailing,  when the
tune of his  tremble shook shimmy on shin, while his countrary  raged in the
weak of his wailing, like  a rugilant pugilant Lyon  O'Lynn; if he maundered
in misliness,  plaining  his  plight or,  played fox and lice,  pricking and
dropping  hips  teeth,  or  wringing  his handcuffs  for  peace,  the  blind
blighter,  praying  Dieuf and Domb Nostrums  foh thomethinks  to eath; if he
weapt while  he leapt and guffalled quith a quhimper, made cold blood a blue
mundy and  no  bones without flech, taking kiss, kake or  kick with  a suck,
sigh or simper, a diffle to  larn and a dibble to lech;  if the fain shinner
pegged  you to shave  his  immartial, wee skillmustered shoul with his  ooh,
hoodoodoo ! broking wind that to wiles, woemaid sin he was partial, we don't
think, Jones, we'd care to this evening, would you?
     Answer:  No, blank ye! So you think I have impulsivism? Did  they  tell
you I am one of the fortysixths?  And I suppose you heard I had a  wag on my
ears? And I  suppose they  told you too that my roll of life is not natural?
But before proceeding to conclusively confute this begging question it would
be  far  fitter for  you,  if  you dare! to  hasitate to  consult  with  and
consequentially  attempt  at  my  disposale  of the  same  dime-cash problem
elsewhere naturalistically of  course, from the blinkpoint of  so  eminent a
spatialist.  From it you will  here notice,  Schott, upon  my for  the first
remarking you that  the sophology of Bitchson  while  driven  as under  by a
purely  dime-dime  urge  is not without  his  cashcash  characktericksticks,
borrowed for  its nonce ends from the fiery goodmother Miss Fortune (who the
lost time we had the pleasure we  have had our little recherch'  brush with,
what, Schott?) and as I further could  have told you as brisk as your D.B.C.
behaviouristically paillet'  with a coat of homoid icing which is in reality
only a  done by chance ridiculisation  of  the  whoo-whoo and where's  hairs
theorics of Winestain. To put it all the more plumbsily. The speechform is a
mere sorrogate. Whilst the quality and tality (I shall explex what you ought
to  mean by  this with  its  proper when  and where  and why and how  in the
subsequent sentence) are alternativomentally harrogate and  arrogate, as the
gates may be.
     Talis  is a  word often abused  by many  passims (I  am working  out  a
quantum theory about it for it is really most tantumising state of affairs).
A pessim may  frequent  you to say: Have you been seeing much  of  Talis and
Talis those times? optimately meaning:  Will you put up at hree of irish? Or
a ladyeater may perhaps have casualised as you temptoed her ... la sourdine:
Of your plates?  Is  Talis de  Talis, the swordswallower,  who is on  at the
Craterium the same Talis von Talis, the penscrusher, no  funk you ! who runs
his duly mile?  Or this is a perhaps cleaner example. At a recent postvortex
piece infustigation of a determinised case of chronic spinosis  an extension
lecturer on The Ague who out of matter of form was trying his seesers,  Dr's
Het Ubeleeft, borrowed the question:  Why's which Suchman's talis qualis? to
whom, as a fatter of  macht, Dr Gedankje  of  Stoutgirth, who was wiping his
whistle, toarsely retoarted:  While thou  beast' one zoom of a whorl! (Talis
and Talis originally mean the same thing, hit it's: Qualis.)
     Professor Loewy-Brueller (though  as  I shall promptly prove  his whole
account of  the Sennacherib  as  distinct from  the Shalmanesir sanitational
reforms  and of the Mr Skekels  and Dr Hydes problem in the  same connection
differs toto coelo from the fruit  of my own investigations  --  though  the
reason I went to Jericho must remain for certain reasons  a political secret
--  especially as I  shall shortly be  wanted  in  Cavantry, I  congratulate
myself, for the same and other reasons -- as being again hopelessly vitiated
by  what I  have now resolved to call the dime  and cash diamond fallacy) in
his  talked off confession which recently  met with such a leonine uproar on
its escape after its confinement Why am I not born like a Gentileman and why
am I now so speakable about  my own  eatables (Feigenbaumblatt  and  Father,
Judapest, 5688,  A.M.)  whole-heartedly takes off  his  gabbercoat and  wig,
honest  draughty fellow, in his public interest, to make us see  how though,
as he says: 'by Allswill' the inception and the descent  and the endswell of
Man is temporarily wrapped  in obscenity, looking through at these accidents
with  the faroscope  of  television, (this nightlife instrument  needs still
some  subtractional betterment  in the  readjustment of the more refrangible
angles  to  the squeals of his  hypothesis  on the outer  tin sides),  I can
easily believe heartily in my own most spacious immensity as my ownhouse and
microbemost cosm when I am reassured by ratio that the cube of my volumes is
to the  surfaces of their subjects as the sphericity  of these globes (I  am
very pressing for a parliamentary motion this term which, under my guidance,
would establish the deleteriousness of  decorousness in the morbidisation of
the modern mandaboutwoman type) is to the feracity of Fairynelly's vacuum. I
need  not anthrapologise for any obintentional (I must here correct all that
school  of neoitalian or paleoparisien schola of  tinkers  and spanglers who
say  I'm  wrong  parcequeue  out of revolscian from romanitis I  want to be)
downtrodding on my foes. Professor Levi-Brullo, F.D. of SexeWeiman-Eitelnaky
finds, from  experiments  made  by  hinn  with his Nuremberg eggs in the one
hands and the watches cunldron apan the oven, though it is astensably a case
of Ket's rebollions cooling  the  Popes  back, because the  number of squeer
faiths  in  weekly  circulation  will  not  be  appreciably augmented by the
notherslogging of my cupolar clods.  What the romantic  in  rags pines after
like  all tomtompions haunting crevices for a  deadbeat  escupement and what
het  importunes  our  Mitleid  for  in  accornish  with  the  Mortadarthella
taradition  is the poorest commononguardiant waste of time. His  everpresent
toes are always  in retaliessian  out throuth his  overpast boots.  Hear him
squak!  Teek heet  to that  looswallawer how he  bolo the bat! Tyro a toray!
When Mullocky won the couple of colds,  when  we  were stripping  in  number
three, I would like the neat drop that would malt in my mouth but  I fail to
see when  (I am purposely refraining from expounding the obvious  fallacy as
to the  specific gravitates of the two deglutables implied nor to the lapses
lequou  asousiated  with  the   royal   gorge  through   students  of  mixed
hydrostatics  and  pneumodipsics will after some  difficulties  grapple away
with  my  meinungs). Myrrdin aloer! as  old  Marsellas Cambriannus puts his.
But, on Professor Llewellys  ap Bryllars, F.D., Ph. Dr's showings, the plea,
if he pleads, is all posh and robbage on a melodeontic scale since his man's
when is no otherman's quandour (Mine, dank you?) while,-- for  aught I  care
for  the contrary,  the all is where in love as war and the plane  where  me
arts soar you'd aisy rouse a thunder from and where I cling true'tis there I
climb tree and where Innocent looks best (pick!) there's holly in his ives.
     As  my  explanations  here  are  probably  above  your  understandings,
lattlebrattons, though as augmentatively uncomparisoned as Cadwan, Cadwallon
and  Cadwalloner,  I  shall  revert  to  a  more  expletive method  which  I
frequently use when  I have to sermo with muddlecrass pupils. Imagine for my
purpose  that  you are a  squad  of  urchins,  snifflynosed,  goslingnecked,
clothyheaded, tangled  in your lacings,  tingled  in  your pants,  etsitaraw
etcicero. And you,  Bruno Nowlan,  take  your tongue out of  your inkpot! As
none of  you knows javanese I will give all my  easyfree translation  of the
old fabulist's parable.  Allaboy Minor, take your head out of your  satchel!
Audi, Joe Peters! Exaudi facts !
     The Mookse and The Gripes.
     Gentes  and  laitymen,  fullstoppers  and  semicolonials,  hybreds  and
lubberds !
     Eins within a space and a wearywide space it wast  ere wohned a Mookse.

he  would  a  walking go  (My  hood!  cries Antony Romeo),so one  grandsumer
evening, after a great morning and  his good supper of  gammon and spittish,
having flabelled his eyes, pilleoled his nostrils, vacticanated his ears and
palliumed his  throats, he put  on  his impermeable, seized his  impugnable,
harped  on his crown and stepped out of his immobile  De Rure Albo (socolled

from Ludstown a spasso to see how badness was badness in the weirdest of all
pensible ways.
     As he  set off  with his  father's  sword, his lancia spezzata, he  was
girded on, and with that between his legs and his tarkeels, our once in only
Bragspear, he clanked, to my clinking,  from veetoes to threetop, every inch
of an immortal.
     He had not walked over a pentiadpair of parsecs  from his  azylium when
at    the    turning    of    the    Shinshone     Lanteran    near    Saint
Bowery's-without-his-Walls  he  came (secunding to the one  one oneth of the
propecies, Amnis  Limina Permanent) upon the most unconsciously boggylooking
stream he  ever locked his eyes with. Out of  the colliens it took a rise by
daubing  itself Ninon. It looked little and it smelt of brown and it thought
in narrows  and  it talked showshallow. And as it rinn it dribbled like  any
lively  purliteasy: My, my, my! Me and me! Little down dream  don't  I  love
thee!
     And, I  declare, what was there on the yonder  bank of  the stream that
would  be  a river, parched  on a  limb of the olum, bolt downright, but the
Gripes?  And  no doubt he was fit to be dried for why had he not been having
the juice of his times?
     His pips  had been neatly all  drowned on him; his  polps were charging
odours every older minute; he was quickly for getting the dresser's desdaign
on  the  flyleaf of his frons; and he  was quietly  for giving the bailiff's
distrain on  to  the bulkside  of  his cul  de  Pompe. In all  his  specious
heavings, as  be  lived  by Optimus Maximus, the  Mookse  had never seen his
Dubville brooderon-low so nigh to a pickle.

     -- Good appetite us, sir Mookse ! How do you  do it? cheeped the Gripes
in a  wherry whiggy maudelenian woice  and  the  jackasses  all  within bawl
laughed and  brayed for his  intentions  for they knew their sly  toad lowry
now.  I  am  rarumominum  blessed to see you, my dear mouster. Will you  not
perhopes tell me everything  if you are pleased, sanity? All about aulne and

     Think of it! O miserendissimest retempter! A Gripes!

     --  I  am till infinity obliged with you,  bowed the  Gripes, his whine
having  gone to his palpruy head. I am still always having a  wish on all my
extremities. By the watch, what is the time, pace?
     Figure it! The pining peever! To a Mookse!
     --  Ask  my index, mund my achilles,  swell my  obolum, woshup my  nase

on my  raisins,  if I  connow make my submission, I cannos give you up,  the

     Nuvoletta  in  her lightdress,  spunn of  sisteen shimmers, was looking
down on them, leaning over the bannistars and listening  all  she childishly
could.  How  she was brightened when Shouldrups in  his glaubering hochskied
his  welkinstuck  and how she was overclused when Kneesknobs  on his zwivvel
was  makeacting  such a paulse  of  himshelp! She was alone. All  her nubied
companions were asleeping with the squirrels. Their mivver, Mrs Moonan,  was
off in the Fuerst quarter scrubbing the backsteps of Number 28. Fuvver, that
Skand,  he  was up  in  Norwood's  sokaparlour, eating  oceans  of  Voking's
Blemish. Nuvoletta listened as she  reflected  herself, though the  heavenly
one with his constellatria  and his emanations  stood between, and she tried
all  she tried to make the  Mookse  look  up  at  her (but  he was fore  too
adiaptotously  farseeing) and  to make the Gripes hear how coy  she could be
(though he was  much  too  schystimatically auricular about his  ens to heed
her) but  it was all  mild's vapour  moist.  Not even her feignt reflection,
Nuvoluccia,  could  they  toke  their  gnoses  off  for  their  minds   with
intrepifide fate and bungless  curiasity,  were conclaved with Heliogobbleus
and Commodus and Enobarbarus and  whatever the coordinal dickens they did as
their  damprauch of  papyrs  and  buchstubs  said.  As  if  that  was  their
spiration! As if  theirs could duiparate her queendim!  As if she  would  be
third perty  to  search  on search  proceedings! She tried  all  the winsome
wonsome  ways   her   four   winds   had   taught   her.  She   tossed   her
sfumastelliacinous hair like le princesse  de  la  Petite  Bretagne and  she
rounded  her mignons  arms like  Mrs  Cornwallis-West  and  she  smiled over
herself like  the beauty of the image of  the pose of  the  daughter  of the
queen of the Emperour of Irelande and she sighed  after herself as  were she
born to bride with Tristis Tristior Tristissimus.  But, sweet madonine,  she
might  fair  as  well  have  carried  her daisy's worth to  Florida. For the
Mookse, a dogmad Accanite,  were not  amoosed and  the Gripes, a dubliboused
Catalick, wis pinefully obliviscent.
     I see, she sighed. There are menner.
     The siss of the  whisp of  the sigh of the  softzing at the stir of the
ver grose  O arundo  of  a  long  one in  midias reeds: and  shades began to
glidder along the banks, greepsing, greepsing, duusk unto duusk,  and it was
as  glooming  as gloaming  could be in  the waste  of  all  peacable worlds.
Metamnisia was allsoonome  coloroform brune;  citherior  spiane an eaulande,
innemorous  and unnumerose.  The Mookse had a sound  eyes right but he could
not all hear. The Gripes had light  ears left yet he  could  but ill see. He
ceased. And he ceased, tung and trit, and it was neversoever so dusk of both
of  them. But  still  Moo  thought  on  the  deeps of  the undths  he  would
profoundth  come the morrokse and still  Gri feeled of  the scripes he would
escipe if by grice he had luck enoupes.
     Oh, how it was  duusk! From  Vallee Maraia  to  Grasyaplaina, dormimust
echo! Ah dew! Ah dew! It was so duusk that the tears of night began to fall,
first by ones and twos, then by threes and fours, at last by fives and sixes
of sevens,  for the tired ones were wecking, as we weep now with them. O! O!
O! Par la pluie!
     Then there came  down  to the  thither bank a woman of no appearance (I
believe  she was a Black with chills at her feet)  and she  gathered  up his
hoariness the Mookse motamourfully where he was spread and carried him  away
to  her invisible dwelling, thats hights,  Aquila Rapax, for he was the holy
sacred solem and poshup spit of her boshop's apron. So you see the Mookse he
had reason as I knew and you knew and he knew all along. And there came down
to  the hither  bank a woman to all important (though they say  that she was
comely, spite the cold in her heed) and, for he was as like it as blow it to
a hawker's  hank,  she plucked  down the  Gripes, torn panicky autotone,  in
angeu from his limb and  cariad away its  beotitubes with  her to her unseen
shieling, it is, De Rore Coeli.  And so the poor Gripes  got wrong; for that
is always how a Gripes is,  always was and always  will.be. And it was never
so thoughtful of either of them. And there were left now an only elmtree and
but a stone. Polled with pietrous, Sierre but saule. O!  Yes! And Nuvoletta,
a lass.
     Then Nuvoletta reflected for the last time in her  little long life and
she made up all her myriads of drifting minds  in one. She cancelled all her
engauzements. She climbed over the bannistars; she gave a childy cloudy cry:
Nu'e!  Nu'e! A lightdress  fluttered. She was gone. And into  the river that
had been a stream (for a  thousand of tears had gone eon her and come on her
and  she  was  stout  and  struck  on  dancing  and  her  muddied  name  was
Missisliffi) there fell  a tear, a singult tear, the  loveliest of all tears
(I mean for  those crylove fables  fans  who are  'keen' on the prettypretty
commonface sort of thing you meet by hopeharrods) for it was a leaptear. But
the river tripped on her  by and by, lapping as  though her heart was brook:
Why, why, why! Weh, O weh I'se so silly to be flowing but I no canna stay!
     No applause, please! Bast! The romescot nattleshaker will go round your

     Burrus, let us  like to  imagine, is a genuine prime,  the real choice,
full of natural greace, the mildest of milkstoffs yet unbeaten as a risicide
and, of course,  obsoletely  unadulterous whereat  Caseous is obversely  the
revise of him and in  fact  not  an ideal  choose by any  meals,  though the
betterman of  the  two is meltingly addicted to the more casual side of  the
arrivaliste  case  and,  let me say it at  once, as  zealous over him  as is
passably  he. The seemsame home and histry seeks and hidepence which we used

mutuearly  polarised  the  incompatabilily  of  any  delusional   acting  as
ambivalent to the  fixation of his  pivotism. Positing, as above,  too males
pooles, the one the pictor of the other and the omber the Skotia of the one,
and looking wantingly around our undistributed  middle between males we feel
we  must  waistfully  woent  a  female  to  focus  and  on  this stage there
pleasantly  appears the  cowrymaid  M.  whom we shall  often meet below  who
introduces herself upon us at  some  precise hour which we shall again agree
to call  absolute zero or the babbling pumpt of  platinism. And so like that
former son of a kish who went up and out to found his farmer's ashes we come
down home gently on our own turnedabout asses to meet Margareen.
     We now  romp  through  a  period of pure lyricism  of  shamebred  music
(technologically, let me say, the appetising entry of this subject on a fool
chest of vialds is plumply pudding the carp before doevre hors) evidenced by
such  words  in distress as I cream for  thee, Sweet Margareen, and the more
hopeful O Margareena! O Margareena! Still in the  bowl  is  left  a lump  of
gold!  (Correspondents, by  the  way, will  keep on  asking  me  what is the
correct  garnish  to  serve  drisheens   with.  Tansy  Sauce.  Enough).  The
pawnbreaking  pathos  of the first of  these shoddy pieces reveals  it  as a
Caseous effort. Burrus's  bit is  often  used for a toast.  Criniculture can
tell us very precisely indeed how and  why this particular  streak of yellow
silver first appeared on (not in) the bowel, that is to see, the human head,
bald,  black, bronze, brown, brindled, betteraved or  blanchemanged where it
might be usefully compared with an  earwig on a  fullbottom.  I  am offering
this to Signorina Cuticura and I intend to take it up and bring it under the
nosetice of Herr Harlene by way  of diverting his attentions. Of  course the
unskilled  singer continues to  pervert  our wiser ears by subordinating the
space-element, that is to sing, the aria, to the time-factor, which ought to
be killed, ill tempor. I should  advise any  unborn singer  who may still be
among my heeders  to forget her  temporal diaphragm at home (the best  thing
that could  happen to  it!)  and  attack the roulade  with a swift colpo  di
glottide to the lug (though Maace I  will insist was reclined from overdoing
this, his recovery often being slow) and then, O ! on the third dead beat, O
! to cluse  her eyes and aiopen her oath and  see what spice I may send her.
How? Cease thee, cantatrickee! I fain would be solo. Arouse thee, my valour!
And save for e'er my true Bdur!
     I  shall  have a  word to  say  in a  few yards  about the acoustic and
orchidectural management of the tonehall but, as  ours  is a vivarious where
one plant's breaf  is  a lunger planner's byscent and you  may  not care for
argon, it will be very convenient for me for the emolument to  pursue Burrus
and  Caseous for a rung or two up  their  isocelating biangle. Every admirer
has seen my goulache of Marge (she  is so  like the sister, you don't  know,
and  they both  dress  A  L I  K E !) which I  titled The  Very Picture of a
Needlesswoman which in  the  presence ornates our national  cruetstand. This
genre of  portraiture of changes of mind in order to  be truly torse  should
evoke the bush soul of females  so I am leaving it to the experienced victim
to complete the general suggestion by the mental addition of a wallopy bound
or, should the zulugical zealot  prefer  it, a congorool teal. The  hatboxes
which  composed  Rhomba,  lady  Trabezond  (Marge  in  her  excelsis),  also
comprised the climactogram up which B and C may fondly be imagined ascending
and are suggestive of gentlemen's spring modes, these modes carrying us back
to the  superimposed claylayers of  eocene and pleastoseen formation and the
gradual   morphological   changes  in  our  body  politic  which   Professor
Ebahi-Ahuri  of  Philadespoinis (Ill)  -- whose bluebutterbust  I  have just
given  his  coupe de  grass  to -- neatly  names a bo?te  ... surprises. The
boxes, if I may break the subject gently, are worth about fourpence  pourbox
but I am inventing a more patent process, foolproof and pryperfect (I should
like to ask that Shedlock Homes person  who is out for removing the roofs of
our criminal classics by  what deductio  ad  domunum  he hopes  de tacto  to
detect anything  unless  he happens of himself,  movibile tectu,  to have  a
slade off) after which they can be reduced to a fragment of their true crust
by  even the  youngest  of Margees if she  will take plase to  be seated and
smile if I please.
     Now there  can be no  question  about it either that I having  done  as
much,  have quite  got the size  of that  demilitery young  female  (we will
continue  to  call her Marge) whose  types  may  be  met with in any  public
garden, wearing a very "dressy" affair, known as an "ethel" of instep length
and  with a  real fur,  reduced  to 3/9,  and  muffin cap to tone  (they are
"angelskin"  this  fall),  ostentatiously  hemming  apologetically over  the
shirtness of some  "sweet" garment, when she is not sitting on all the  free
benches avidously reading about "it" but ovidently on the look out for "him"
or  so  "thrilled" about  the best dressed  dolly pram  and beautiful  elbow
competition or at the movies swallowing sobs and blowing bixed mixcuits over
"childe"  chaplain's  "latest"  or  on  the  verge  of the gutter  with some
bobbedhair brieffrocked  babyma's toddler  (the Smythe-Smythes  now keep TWO
domestics and  aspire  to  THREE male ones,  a  shover,  a  butlegger and  a
sectary) held hostage at armslength, teaching His Infant Majesty how to make
waters worse.
     (I am closely watching Master Pules, as I  have regions to suspect from
my post that her "litde man" is a secondary  schoolteacher under  the boards
of education,  a  voted disciple  of Infantulus  who is  being utilised thus
publicly  by  the  seducente  infanta  to  conceal  her  own  more  mascular
personality by flaunting frivolish finery over men's inside clothes, for the
femininny of that totamulier will always lack the musculink of a verumvirum.
My  solotions  for the proper  parturience  of matres and the  education  of
micturious mites must stand over from the moment till I tackle  this tickler
hussy for occupying my uttentions.)
     Margareena  she's very  fond of Burrus but, alick and alack! she  velly
fond  of  chee. (The important influence exercised  on  everything  by  this
eastasian  import  has  not  been  till  now fully  flavoured though  we can
comfortably taste it in this case.  I shall  come back for a little more say
farther on.)  A cleopatrician in her own right  she at once complicates  the
position  while  Burrus  and  Caseous  are contending  for  her  misstery by
implicating herself  with an elusive Antonius, a wop who would appear to hug
a  personal  interest in refined  chees of all chades at the same time as he
wags   an   antomine    art   of   being    rude   like   the   boor.   This
Antonius-Burrus-Caseous  grouptriad  may  be  said  to  equate  the   qualis
equivalent with the older socalled  talis on talis one just as quantly as in
the hyperchemical economantarchy  the tantum ergons irruminate  the  quantum
urge so that eggs  is to whey as whay is to zeed like  your  golfchild's abe
boob caddy.  And  this is why any simple philadolphus of  a fool you like to
dress,  an  athemisthued  lowtownian, exlegged  phatrisight, may be  awfully
green to one side of him and  fruitfully blue  on the other which  will  not
screen  him  however  from appealing  to my gropesarching  eyes, through the
strongholes of my acropoll, as a boosted  blasted  bleating blatant  bloaten
blasphorus blesphorous idiot who kennot tail a bomb from a painapple when he
steals  one  and wannot psing  his psalmen with the  cong in our gregational

     Shem is as short for Shemus as Jem is joky for  Jacob. A few toughnecks
are  still getatable  who  pretend that  aboriginally he was of  respectable
stemming (he was an outlex between the lines of Ragonar Blaubarb ant Horrild
Hairwire and an inlaw to  Capt. the Hon. and Rev. Mr Bbyrdwood de Trop Blogg
was among his most distant connections)  but every honest to goodness man in
the land of the space of today knows that his back life will not stand being
written about in black and white. Putting  truth and untruth together a shot
may be made at what this hybrid actually was like to look at.
     Shem's bodily getup, it seems, included an adze of a skull, an eight of
a larkseye,  the whoel of a nose,  one numb arm up a sleeve,  fortytwo hairs
off  his  uncrown,  eighteen  to  his mock lip,  a  trio of barbels from his
megageg chin (sowman's son),  the wrong shoulder higher than the right,  all
ears, an artificial  tongue with  a natural curl, not  a foot to stand on, a
handful of thumbs, a blind stomach, a deaf heart, a loose liver, two  fifths
of two  buttocks, one gleetsteen avoirdupoider  for  him, a manroot  of  all
evil,  a  salmonkelt's  thinskin, eelsblood  in  his-cold  toes,  a  bladder
tristended, so much so that young Master Shemmy on his very first debouch at
the very  dawn of protohistory seeing  himself such  and such, when  playing
with thistlewords in their garden nursery,  Griefotrofio, at Phig Streat III
Shuvlin, Old Hoeland, (would we  go back there now for sounds, pillings  and
sense? would we now for annas and annas? would we for fullscore eight  and a
liretta? for twelve blocks one bob? for four testers one groat?  not  for  a
dinar! not for jo!) dictited to of all his little brothron  and sweestureens
the first riddle of the universe: asking,  when is a man not a man?: telling
them take their time, yungfries,  and wait till the tide stops (for from the
first his day was a fortnight) and offering the prize of a bittersweet crab,
a little present from  the  past, for their copper  age was yet unminted, to
the  winner.  One said  when the  heavens are quakers, a  second  said  when
Bohemeand lips, a third said when he, no, when hold hard a jiffy, when he is
a gnawstick and  detarmined to, the  next one said when the  angel  of death
kicks the  bucket of life, still another  said when the wine's at  witsends,
and still  another  when lovely  wooman  stoops to  conk  him,  one  of  the
littliest said  me,  me, Sem, when pappa  papared  the harbour, one  of  the
wittiest said, when he yeat ye abblokooken and  he zmear hezelf  zo zhooken,
still  one  said  when you are  old I'm grey fall full wi  sleep, and  still
another  when wee deader  walkner, and  another  when he is  just only after
having being semisized, another when yea, he hath  no mananas, and one  when
dose pigs they begin now  that they will flies up intil  the looft. All were
wrong,  so  Shem himself, the doctator, took  the cake, the correct solution
being -- all give it up? -- ; when he is a -- yours till the rending of  the
rocks, -- Sham.
     Shem was a sham and a low sham and his  lowness  creeped out first  via
foodstuffs. So low was he that he  preferred Gibsen's teatime salmon tinned,
as inexpensive  as pleasing,  to  the plumpest roeheavy lax or the friskiest
parr or  smolt  troutlet  that ever was  gaffed between  Leixlip  and Island
Bridge and many was the time he repeated in his botulism that no junglegrown
pineapple  ever smacked like  the whoppers you shook  out  of Ananias' cans,
Findlater and  Gladstone's,  Corner House,  Englend.  None of your inchthick
blueblooded Balaclava  fried-at-belief-stakes  or  juicejelly  legs  of  the
Grex's molten mutton or greasilygristly grunters' goupons or slice upon slab
of  luscious goosebosom with  lump after  load of  plumpudding  stuffing all
aswim in a swamp of bogoakgravy for that greekenhearted yude! Rosbif  of Old
Zealand! he  could not attouch it. See  what  happens  when your somatophage
merman  takes  his  fancy to  our virgitarian swan?  He  even ran  away with
hunself and became a farsoonerite, saying he would far sooner muddle through
the  hash of lentils in  Europe than meddle with Irrland's split little pea.
Once when among those  rebels in a state of hopelessly helpless intoxication

the  lowness of him was  beneath all  up  to  that  sunk to!  No likedbylike

     Around that time, moravar, one generally, for luvvomony hoped or at any
rate suspected among morticians that he would  early tum out badly,  develop
hereditary  pulmonary T.B.,  and  do for himself one  dandy time,  nay, of a
pelting night blanketed creditors, hearing a coarse song and splash off Eden
Quay  sighed and rolled over, sure  all  was up, but, though he fell heavily
and locally into  debit, not even then could such an  antinomian be true  to
type. He would  not put  fire to his cerebrum; he would not throw himself in
Liffey;  he  would  not  explaud  himself with pneumantics;  he  refused  to
saffrocake himself with a  sod. With the foreign devil's leave the fraid bom
fraud diddled even death. Anzi,  cabled  (but shaking the worth  out of  his
maulth: Guardacosta leporello? Szasas Kraicz!) from his Nearapoblican asylum

something, Fireless. And had answer: Inconvenient, David.
     You see,  chaps, it will trickle  out, freaksily of course, but the tom
and the shorty of it is: he  was in his bardic  memory low. All the time  he
kept  on  treasuring with condign  satisfaction  each  and  every  crumb  of
trektalk,  covetous of  his  neighbour's word, and if  ever,  during a Munda
conversazione  commoted in  the  nation's interest,  delicate  tippits  were
thrown out  to  him touching  his evil courses by  some  wellwishers, vainly
pleading by scriptural arguments with the opprobrious papist about trying to
brace  up for the kidos of the thing, Scally wag, and be a men instead of  a
dem  scrounger, dish it all,  such as: Pray, what is the  meaning, sousy, of
that continental  expression,  if  you ever  came acrux it, we think it is a
word transpiciously  like canaille?: or:  Did you anywhere, kennel,  on your
gullible's  travels  or  during  your rural troubadouring, happen to stumble
upon a  certain gay young nobleman whimpering to the  name of Low Swine  who
always addresses women out of the one comer of his mouth, lives on loans and
is furtivefree yours of age? without one sigh of haste like the supreme prig
he was, and not a bit sorry, he would  pull a vacant landlubber's face, root
with earwaker's pensile in the outer of his lauscher and then, lisping,  the
prattlepate parnella, to kill  time, and swatting his deadbest to think what
under  the  canopies  of  Jansens  Chrest  would  any  decent  son   of   an
Albiogenselman who had bin to an university think, let a lent hit a hint and
begin to tell all the  intelligentsia admitted  to that tamileasy samtalaisy

pollititians,  agricolous  manufraudurers,  sacrestanes  of  the  Pure River
Society, philanthropicks lodging on as  many boards round the panesthetic at
the same time as possible) the whole lifelong swrine story of his entire low
cornaille  existence, abusing his deceased ancestors wherever the  sods were
and  one moment tarabooming great blunderguns (poh!) about his farfamed fine
Poppamore, Mr Humhum, whom history, climate and entertainment made the first
of his sept  and always up to  debt,  though  Eavens ears  ow many fines  he
faces, and another moment visanvrerssas,cruaching three jeers (pah!) for his
rotten  little ghost of a Peppybeg, Mr Himmyshimmy, a  blighty,  a  reeky, a
lighty, a scrapy,  a babbly, a ninny, dirty seventh among thieves and always
bottom  sawyer,  till  nowan  knowed  how  howmely  howme  could be,  giving
unsolicited testimony on  behalf  of the absent, as  glib as  eaveswater  to
those present  (who  meanwhile,  with  increasing  lack of  interest  in his
semantics,  allowed various  subconscious smickers to drivel  slowly  across
their fichers), unconsciously explaining, for inkstands, with a meticulosity
bordering on the insane, the various  meanings of all the different  foreign
parts of speech  he misused and  cuttlefishing every lie  unshrinkable about
all the other people  in the story, leaving out, of course, foreconsciously,
the  simple worf  and plague and  poison  they  had cornered him about until
there was not a snoozer among them but was utterly undeceived in the heel of
the reel by the recital of the rigmarole.
     He  went  without  saying  that  the  cull   disliked  anything  anyway
approaching a plain straightforward standup  or knockdown row and, as  often
as he  was called  in to umpire any octagonal argument  among slangwhangers,
the accomplished  washout always used to rub shoulders with the last speaker
and clasp shakers (the handtouch which is speech without words) and agree to
every word as  soon as  half  uttered, command  me!, your servant,  good,  I
revere you, how, my seer? be drinking that! quite truth, gratias, I'm yoush,
see  wha'm hearing?, also  goods, please  it, me  sure?,  be filling  this!,
quiso, you said it, apasafello, muchas grassyass, is there firing-on-me?, is
their  girlic-on-you?,  to  your good  self, your sulphur,  and then at once
focuss his whole unbalanced  attention upon the next octagonist  who managed
to  catch a  listener's  eye, asking  and imploring him  out  of his piteous
onewinker, (hemoptysia  diadumenos) whether  there was anything in the world
he could do  to please him and to overflow  his tumbletantaliser for him yet
once more.
     One  hailcannon  night (for  his  departure  was attended  by  a  heavy
downpour) as very recently  as  some  thousand rains  ago he  was  therefore
treated  with  what closely resembled parsonal  violence, being  soggert all
unsuspectingly through the deserted  village of Tumblin-on-the-Leafy from Mr
Vanhomrigh's house at 81 bis Mabbot's Mall as far as Green  Patch beyond the
brickfields of Salmon  Pool by rival teams of slowspiers counter quicklimers
who finally, as rahilly they had been deteened out rawther laetich, thought,
busnis  hits  busnis,  they  had  better be  streaking for  home after their
Auborne-to-Auborne,with  thanks  for  the  pleasant  evening,  one  and  all
disgustedly, instead of ruggering him  back, and  awake, reconciled  (though
they  were as jealous as could be  cullions  about all the truffles they had
brought on him) to a friendship, fast and furious, which merely arose out of
the noxious pervert's  perfect lowness. Again there was a  hope that people,
looking on him with the contemp of the contempibles, after first  gaving him
a roll in  the dirt, might pity and forgive him,  if properly  deloused, but
the pleb was born a Quicklow and sank alowing till he stank out of sight.

Sunday  when the grand  germogall allstar  bout was harrily the rage between
our weltingtoms extraordinary and our pettythicks the  marshalaisy and Irish
eyes of welcome were smiling daggers down  their backs, when the  roth, vice
and blause met the noyr blank and rogues and the grim white and cold bet the

getting  the  better  of him, the scut  in a bad fit  of pyjamas fled like a
leveret  for his  bare lives,  to Talviland,  ahone  ahaza, pursued  by  the
scented  curses of  all the  village  belles and,  without having struck one
blow, (pig stole on  him was lust he lagging it was becaused  dust he shook)
kuskykorked himself up tight  in his inkbattle house,  badly the  worse  for
boosegas, there  to  stay in afar for the  life, where, as there  was  not a
moment to be lost, after he had boxed around with his fortepiano till he was
whole  bach bamp  him  and  bump him blues, he collapsed  carefully under  a
bedtick from Schwitzer's,  his face enveloped into a dead warrior's telemac,
with a lullobaw's somnbomnet and a whotwaterwottle at  his feet to stoke his
energy of waiting, moaning feebly, in monkmarian monotheme, but  tarned long
and then a nation louder, while engaged in swallowing from a large ampullar,
that  his  pawdry's  purgatory was  more than  a  nigger  bloke could  bear,
hemiparalysed  by  the tong  warfare and  all the shemozzle,  (Daily  Maily,

colour every time a gat croaked.
     How  is  that  for  low,  laities  and  gentlenuns?  Why,  dog  of  the

a bare (O!) mention of the scaly rybald exclaimed: Poisse!
     But  would anyone,  short  of a madhouse, believe  it? Neither of those
clean  little cherubum, Nero or Nobookisonester himself, ever  nursed such a
spoiled opinion of his  monstrous marvellosity as did this mental and  moral
defective (here perhaps at the  vanessance of his  lownest) who was known to
grognt rather  than  gunnard  upon one  occasion, while  drinking heavily of
spirits to that  interlocutor a latere and private privysuckatary he used to
pal around  with,  in the kavehazs,  one Davy Browne-Nowlan,  his heavenlaid

crying  to Welkins for others, and noahs  and cul verts agush with tears  of

chanting the Gillooly chorus, from the Monster Book of  Paltryattic Puetrie,
O pura e pia bella! in junk et sampam or in secular sinkalarum, heads up, on

Nassaustrass, out of his westernmost keyhole, spitting at  the impenetrablum
wetter,  (and it was porcoghastly that outumn) with an  eachway hope in  his
shivering  soul, as he prayed  to the cloud Incertitude, of finding  out for
himself, on  akkount  of all the kules  in Kroukaparka or  oving to all  the
kodseoggs in  Kalatavala, whether true  conciliation  was  forging ahead  or
falling back  after the  celestious intemperance and, for Duvvelsache,  why,
with his see me see and his my see a corves and his frokerfoskerfuskar layen

himself (hic sunt lennones!) at pointblank range blinking down the barrel of
an irregular  revolver of the bulldog with a  purpose pattern, handled by an
unknown quarreler who, supposedly, had been told off  to shade and shoot shy

this  disinterestingly low human  type, this  Calumnious Column of Cloaxity,
this Bengalese  Beacon of Biloxity,  this Annamite Aper of Atroxity,  really
at, it will be precise to quarify, for he seems in a badbad case?
     The answer, to do  all  the  diddies  in  one  dedal, would sound: from
pulling himself  on his  most  flavoured  canal the huge  chesthouse  of his
elders  (the Popapreta, and  some navico, navvies!) he  had flickered up and
flinnered  down into a  drug and drunkery  addict,  growing  megalomane of a
loose past. This explains the litany of septuncial lettertrumpets honorific,
highpitched,  erudite, neoclassical,which he  so  loved  as  patricianly  to
manuscribe  after  his  name.  It  would   have  diverted,if  ever  seen,the
shuddersome spectacle of this semidemented zany  amid  the inspissated grime
of his glaucous  den making  believe  to read  his usylessly unreadable Blue
Book of Eccles, 'dition de t'n?bres, (even yet sighs the Most Different, Dr.
Poindejenk,  authorised  bowdler and censor, it can't  be repeated!) turning
over three sheets at  a  wind,  telling himself delightedly, no espellor mor
so, that every splurge on the vellum he blundered over was an aisling vision
more gorgeous than the one before t.i.t.s., a roseschelle cottage by the sea
for  nothing for ever, a ladies tryon hosiery raffle at liberty, a  sewerful
of guineagold wine with brancomongepadenopie and sickcylinder  oysters worth
a billion a bite,  an  entire operahouse (there was to be stamping room only
in  the  prompter's  box  and  everthemore  his  queque  kept  swelling)  of
enthusiastic noblewomen flinging every  coronetcrimsoned stitch they had off
at his probscenium,one after  the  others,  inamagoaded into  ajustilloosing

plumes on the  right handle side  of his amarellous head,  a coat macfarlane
(the  kerssest  cut,  you  understand?)  a sponiard's  digger  at  his ribs,
(Alfaiate punxit) an  azulblu  blowsheet for  his blousebosom  blossom and a

Carchingarri and Cardinal Loriotuli and Cardinal Occidentaccia (ah  ho!)  in
the dearby darby doubled for falling first over the  hurdles, madam, in  the
odder hand, a.a.t.s.o.t.,  but what with the murky light, the botchy  print,
the  tattered   cover,  the  jigjagged  page,  the  fumbling   fingers,  the
foxtrotting fleas, the lieabed lice, the scum on his tongue, the drop in his
eye, the lump in  his throat, the drink in his pottle, the itch in his palm,
the wail of his wind, the grief from his breath, the fog of his mindfag, the
buzz in  his braintree,  the tic of his  conscience, the height up his rage,
the gush down  his fundament, the fire in his gorge, the tickle of his tail,
the bane in his bullugs, the squince in his suil, the rot in  his eater, the
ycho in his earer, the totters of his toes, the tetters on his tumtytum, the
rats in his  garret, the bats in his belfry, the budgerigars  and bumbosolom
beaubirds, the hullabaloo and the dust in his ears since it took him a month
to steal a march he was hardset to mumorise more than a word  a week. Hake's
haulin!  Hook's  fisk! Can you beat  it? Whawe! I say,  can you bait it? Was
there ever heard of such lowdown blackguardism? Positively it woolies one to
think over it.
     Yet  the bumpersprinkler used to  boast  aloud alone to  himself with a
haccent on it when Mynfadher was  a  boer  constructor and Hoy was a lexical
student, parole, and corrected with the blackboard (trying to copy the stage
Englesemen he broughts their house down on, shouting: Bravure, surr Chorles!
Letter purfect! Culossal, Loose Wallor! Spache!) how he had been toed out of
all the schicker  families of the klondykers from  Pioupioureich, Swabspays,
the  land of Nod, Shruggers' Country, Pension Danubierhome and Barbaropolis,
who had settled  and  stratified in  the capital city  after its hebdomodary
metropoliarchialisation  as  sunblistered,  moonplastered,  gory, wheedling,
joviale, litcherous and full,  ordered  off  the gorgeous  premises  in most
cases on account  of his  smell which all cookmaids eminently objected to as
ressembling the bombinubble puzzo  that welled out  of the pozzo. Instead of
chuthoring those model households plain wholesome pothooks (a thing he never
possessed of his Nigerian own)  what do you  think Vulgariano  did but study
with stolen fruit how cutely to copy  all  their various styles of signature
so as one  day to utter an epical forged  cheque  on the public for  his own
private profit  until, as just related, the Dustbin's United  Scullerymaid's
and Househelp's  Sorority,  better known  as Sluttery's Mowlted Futt, turned
him down and assisted nature by unitedly shoeing the source of annoyance out
of the  place altogether  and taytotally on the heat of the moment,  holding
one another's gonk  (for  no-one, hound or  scrublady,  not  even  the Turk,
ungreekable in purscent  of the armenable, dared  whiff the polecat at close
range)  and  making  some  pointopointing  remarks as they  done  so at  the

     One cannot even begin to post  figure out  a statuesquo ante  as to how
slow in reality the excommunicated Drumcondriac, nate Hamis, really was. Who
can say how many  pseudostylic shamiana, how  few or how  many  of  the most
venerated  public impostures,  how  very  many  piously  forged  palimpsests
slipped in the first place by this morbid process from his pelagiarist pen?
     Be that as it may, but for that light phantastic of his gnose's glow as
it slid lucifericiously  within an  inch of its page  (he would touch at its
from time to other, the  red eye of his fear in saddishness,  to  ensign the
colours by  the beerlitz in his  mathness and  his educandees  to  outhue to
themselves  in the  cries  of girlglee:  gember !  inkware !  chonchambre  !
cinsero !  zinnzabar !  tincture and gin!) Nibs never  would  have quilled a
seriph to sheepskin. By that rosy lampoon's effluvious burning and with help
of the simulchronic flush in his pann (a ghinee a ghirk he ghets there!)  he
scrabbled and scratched and  scriobbled and skrevened nameless shamelessness
about everybody ever he met, even sharing  a precipitation under the  idlish
tarriers'  umbrella  of  a  showerproof wall, while all over up and down the
four margins  of this rancid Shem stuff  the evilsmeller (who was devoted to
Uldfadar  Sardanapalus)  used  to stipple endlessly inartistic portraits  of

true colours ere you  be back for  ever till I give you your talkingto! Shem
Macadamson, you know me and  I  know you and all your  shemeries. Where have
you  been  in the uterim,  enjoying yourself all the morning since your last
wetbed confession? I advise you to  conceal yourself, my little friend, as I
have said a moment ago and put your hands in my  hands and have a nightslong
homely little confiteor about things. Let me see. It is looking pretty black
against you, we suggest, Sheem avick. You  will need all the elements in the
river to  clean  you over it  all  and a  fortifine popespriestpower bull of
attender to booth.
     Let us  pry.  We thought, would and did.  Cur, quicquid,  ubi,  quando,
quomodo, quoties, quibus auxiliis? You were bred, fed, fostered and fattened
from holy childhood up in this two easter island  on the piejaw of hilarious
heaven  and roaring  the  other place (plunders  to  night of you,  blunders
what's left of  you, flash  as flash can!) and now, forsooth, a nogger among
the blankards of  this dastard century, you have become  of twosome twiminds
forenenst gods, hidden and discovered, nay, condemned fool, anarch, egoarch,
hiresiarch, you have reared your disunited kingdom on the vacuum of your own
most intensely doubtful soul.  Do you hold yourself then for some god in the
manger,  Shehohem, that you will neither  serve not  let serve, pray nor let
pray? And here, pay the piety, must I too nerve myself to pray  for the loss
of selfrespect to equip me for the  horrible  necessity of scandalisang  (my
dear sisters, are you ready?)  by sloughing off my hope and tremors while we
all swin together in the pool of  Sodom? I shall  shiver for my purity while
they will weepbig for your sins. Away  with covered words, new  Solemonities
for old  Badsheetbaths!  That  inharmonious detail, did you  name  it?  Cold
caldor!  Gee! Victory! Now, opprobro of underslung pipes, johnjacobs,  while
yet an adolescent (what do I say?), while still puerile in your tubsuit with
buttonlegs,you  got  a  handsome  present  of a selfraising syringe and twin
feeders (you know,  Monsieur Abgott, in your  art of  arts,  to your cost as
well as I  do (and don't try to hide it) the penals lots I am now poking at)
and the wheeze sort of  was you should (if you were as bould a stroke now as
the curate that christened you, sonny douth-the-candle!) repopulate the land
of your birth and count up your progeny by the hungered head and the angered
thousand but you thwarted the wious  pish of your  cogodparents, soph, among
countless occasions of  failing (for, said you, I will elenchate), adding to
the malice of your transgression,  yes, and changing its nature, (you  see I
have read your theology for you) alternating the morosity of my delectations
-- a philtred  love, trysting by  tantrums, small peace in ppenmark --  with
sensibility,  sponsibility,  passibility  and  prostability, your  lubbock's
other  fear pleasures  of a butler's life,  even  extruding  your strabismal
apologia, when legibly depressed, upon defenceless paper and thereby  adding
to the  already unhappiness of this  our popeyed world, scribblative! -- all
that too with cantreds of countless catchaleens, the mannish  as many as the
minneful, congested around and about  you for acres and roods and  poles  or
perches, thick  as  the  fluctuant  sands of Chalwador, accomplished  women,
indeed  fully educanded, far from being old and  rich behind their  dream of
arrivisme, if they  have only their  honour left, and  not  deterred  by bad
weather when consumed by amorous  passion, struggling to  possess themselves
of your boosh, one son of Sorge for all daughters of Anguish, solus cum sola
sive  cuncties cum  omnibobs  (I'd have been the best man for  you, myself),
mutely aying for hat natural knot, debituary  vases or vessels preposterous,
for what would not have cost you ten bolivars of collarwork or the price  of
one ping pang, just a lilt, let  us trillt,  of the oldest song in the wooed
woodworld, (two-we! to-one!), accompanied by a plain gold band!  Hail! Hail!
Highbosomheaving    Missmisstress    Morna    of    the   allsweetheartening
bridemuredemeanour! Her eye's  so gladsome we'll all take shares in the ----
groom!
     Sniffer of carrion, premature gravedigger, seeker  of the nest  of evil
in the bosom of a good word, you, who sleep at our  vigil and  fast for  our
feast,  you with your dislocated  reason,  have cutely foretold, a jophet in
your  own absence, by  blind  poring upon  your many scalds  and  burns  and
blisters, impetiginous  sore  and  pustules, by  the auspices of that  raven
cloud,  your shade, and  by the  auguries  of rooks in parlament, death with
every disaster, the dynamitisation of colleagues, the reducing of records to
ashes, the levelling  of  all  customs by  blazes, the return  of  a  lot of
sweetempered  gunpowdered didst  unto  dudst  but  it  never  stphruck  your
mudhead's obtundity (O  hell, here  comes our funeral! O pest, I'll miss the
post!) that the more carrots you chop, the more turnips you slit,  the  more
murphies  you  peel,  the more onions  you cry over,  the more  bullbeef you
butch, the more mutton you crackerhack,  the more  potherbs  you pound,  the
fiercer the  fire and the longer  your spoon and  the harder you  gruel with
more grease to your elbow the merrier fumes your new Irish stew.
     O, by  the  way,  yes,another thing occurs  to me. You let me tell you,
with  the utmost politeness, were very  ordinarily designed, your birthwrong
was,  to fall in with Plan, as our nationals should, as all nationists must,
and do a certain office (what, I will not tell you) in a certain holy office
(nor  will  I say where)  during  certain agonising office hours (a clerical
party all to yourself) from such a year to such  an hour  on such and such a
date at so and so much a week pro anno (Guinness's, may I remind, were  just
agulp for you,  failing in which you might have taken the scales off boilers
like any boskop of Yorek)  and do your little  thruppenny bit and  thus earn
from the nation true thanks, right here in our place of burden, your  bourne
of travail and ville  of  tares, where after a  divine's prodigence you drew
the  first watergasp in your life, from the  crib where  you once was bit to
the crypt you'll be twice as shy of, same as we, long  of us, alone with the
colt in the curner,  where  you  were  as  popular as an  armenial with  the
faithful, and you set  fire to my tailcoat when I  hold  the paraffin smoker
under yours  (I hope that  chimney's clear) but, slackly shirking both  your
bullet and your billet, you  beat  it backwards  like  Boulanger from Galway
(but he combed the  grass against his  stride)  to sing us a song  of alibi,
(the   cuthone   call   over  the   greybounding  slowrolling   amplyheaving
metamorphoseous that oozy  rocks  parapangle  their preposters  with) nomad,
mooner by lamplight, antinos, shemming amid everyone's repressed laughter to
conceal  your  scatchophily  by  mating,  like  a  thoroughpaste  prosodite,
masculine  monosyllables of the  same numerical  mus, an  Irish emigrant the
wrong way  out, sitting on  your crooked sixpenny  stile,  an unfrillfrocked
quackfriar,  you (will you for the laugh of Scheekspair just  help mine with
the epithet?) semisemitic serendipitist, you (thanks, I think that describes
you) Europasianised Afferyank!
     Shall we follow  each others a steplonger,  drowner  of daggers, whiles
our liege,  tilyet a stranger in the frontyard of his happiness, is  taking,
(heal  helper!  one  gob,  one  gap,  one  gulp  and  gorger  of  all!)  his
refreshment?
     There grew up  beside you,amid our  orisons of the speediest. in Novena
Lodge,  Novara Avenue, in Patripodium-am-Bummel,  oaf, outofwork, one remove
from  an  unwashed savage, on his keeping and in yours, (I pose you know why
possum  hides  is   cause  he  haint   the  nogumtreeumption)   that  other,
Immaculatus, from head to foot, sir,  that pure one, Altrues of other times,
he who  was  well  known  to  celestine  circles  before he sped aloft,  our
handsome young spiritual physician that  was to be, seducing  every sense to
selfwilling celebesty, the most winning  counterfeuille  on our  incomeshare
lotetree, a  chum of the  angelets, a  youth  those  reporters  so pettitily
wanted  as gamefellow that they asked his mother  for ittle earps brupper to
let  him tome to Tindertarten? pease,  and bing his scooter  'long and 'tend
they were all real brothers in the big justright home where Dodd lives, just
to teddyfy the life out of him and pat and pass him one with other like musk
from hand to  hand, that mothersmothered model, that goodlooker  with not  a
flaw whose spiritual toilettes were  the talk of  half  the town, for sunset
wear and nightfallen use and daybroken donning and nooncheon showing and the
very  thing for teasetime, but him  you laid low with one hand  one fine May
morning in the Meddle  of your Might, your bosom foe, because he mussed your
speller  on  you  or because he  cut a pretty figure in the  focus  of  your
frontispecs (not one did you slay, no, but a continent!) to find out how his
innards worked !
     Ever read  of that greatgrand landfather of our visionbuilders, Baaboo,
the bourgeoismeister, who thought to touch  both himmels  at the punt of his
risen stiffstaff  and  how wishywashy  sank the waters of  his thought? Ever
thought  of that  hereticalist Marcon and  the  two  scissymaidies  and  how
bulkily  he shat  the Ructions gunorrhal?  Ever hear of that foxy, that lupo
and that monkax and the virgin heir of the Morrisons, eh, blethering ape?
     Malingerer in luxury, collector general, what has Your Lowness  done in
the  mealtime with all the  hamilkcars  of cooked vegetables, the hatfuls of
stewed fruit, the  suitcases of coddled ales, the Parish  funds, me schamer,
man, that you kittycoaxed so flexibly out of charitable butteries by yowling
heavy with a  hollow voice drop of your horrible awful poverty of mind so as
you couldn't even pledge a crown of Thorne's to pawn a coat off Trevi's  and
as how you was bad no end, so you was, so  whelp you Sinner Pitre and Sinner
Poule, with  the chicken's gape and  pas mal de  si?cle,  which, by  the by,
Reynaldo,  is the ordinary emetic French  for grenadier's  drip. To  let you
have your plank and your bonewash (O the hastroubles you lost!), to give you
your  pound  of  platinum  and  a  thousand  thongs  a  year  (O,  you  were
excruciated, in honour bound to the cross of your own cruelfiction !) to let
you have your Sarday spree and holinight sleep (fame would come to you twixt
a sleep and a wake) and leave  to lie till Paraskivee and the cockcock crows
for  Danmark.  (O Jonathan,  your  estomach!) The  simian  has no  sentiment
secretions but weep  cataracts  for all  me,  Pain the  Shamman! Oft  in the
smelly night will they wallow for a clutch of the famished hand, I say, them
bearded  jezabelles  you  hired  to rob  you,  while  on your  sodden  straw
impolitely you  encored  (Airish  and  nawboggaleesh!) those  hornmade ivory
dreams you reved of the Ruth you called your companionate, a beauty from the
bible, of the  flushpots  of Euston  and the hanging garments of Marylebone.
But the dormer moonshee smiled selene and the lightthrowers knickered: who's
whinging  we? Comport yourself,  you  inconsistency!  Where  is that  little
alimony  nestegg against  our  predictable  rainy day? Is it  not  the  fact
(gainsay  me,  cakeeater!) that, while whistlewhirling  your  crazy  elegies
around Templetombmount joyntstone, (let him pass,  pleasegoodjesusalem, in a
bundle  of  straw, he  was balbettised after haymaking) you squandered among
underlings  the  overload  of  your extravagance  and  made a  hottentot  of
dulpeners crawsick with your crumbs? Am I not right? Yes? Yes? Yes? Holy wax
and holifer! Don't tell me, Leon of the fold, that you are not a  loanshark!
Look  up,  old sooty, be advised  by  mux and take  your medicine.  The Good
Doctor mulled it. Mix  it twice before repastures  and  powder three times a
day. It does marvels for your gripins and it's fine for the solitary worm.
     Let me finish! Just a little judas tonic, my ghem of all jokes, to make
you go green in the gazer. Do you hear what I'm seeing, hammet? And remember
that golden silence  gives consent, Mr Anklegazer! Cease to  be civil, learn
to say nay! Whisht! Come here, Herr Studiosus, till I tell you a wig in your
ear.  We'll  do a whisper drive, for if the barishnyas  got a twitter of  it
they'd tell the housetops and  then all Cadbury would  go crackers. Look! Do
you see your dial in the rockingglass?  Look well ! Bend down a stigmy  till
I! It's secret! Iggri, I say,  the booseleers! I had it from Lamppost Shawe.
And he had  it from the Mullah. And Mull  took  it from a Bluecoat schooler.
And  Gay Socks  jot it from  Potapheu's  wife. And Rantipoll tipped the wink
from old  Mrs  Tinbullet.  And  as  for she  was  confussed  by  pro-Brother
Thacolicus. And the good brother  feels  he would need to  defecate you. And
the Flimsy Follettes  are simply  beside  each  other. And Kelly,  Kenny and
Keogh  are up  up and in arms. That  a cross  may  crush  me if  I refuse to
believe in it. That I may rock anchor  through the ages  if I hope  it's not
true. That the host may choke  me if  I beneighbour you without  my charity!
Sh! Shem, you are. Sh! You are mad!

     MERCIUS (of hisself):  Domine vopiscus! My fault, his fault, a kingship
through a fault! Pariah, cannibal Cain, I who oathily forswore the womb that
bore you and the paps I sometimes  sucked, you who ever  since have been one
black mass  of  jigs and jimjams, haunted  by a convulsionary  sense of  not
having been or being all that  I might  have  been or you meant to becoming,
bewailing like a man that  innocence  which I could not defend like a woman,
lo,you there, Cathmon-Carbery, and thank Movies from the innermost depths of
my still attrite  heart,Wherein  the days of youyouth  are evermixed mimine,
now ere the compline hour of being alone  athands itself and  a  puff or  so
before we yield our spiritus to the wind, for (though that royal one has not
yet drunk a gouttelette from his consummation and the flowerpot on the pole,
the spaniel pack and their quarry, retainers and the public house proprietor
have  not budged a millimetre and all that has been done  has yet to be done
and done  again, when's day's  woe, and lo, you're doomed, joyday dawns and,

branded sheep, pick of  the  wasterpaperbaskel,  by the tremours of Thundery
and  Ulerin's  dogstar, you  alone,  windblasted  tree  of the  knowledge of
beautiful andevil, ay, clothed upon with the  metuor and shimmering like the
horescens, astroglodynamonologos, the child of Nilfit's  father, blzb, to me
unseen blusher in an  obscene  coalhole,  the cubilibum of your secret sigh,
dweller  in the  downandoutermost where voice  only of  the  dead  may come,
because ye left from me,  because ye laughed on me, because, O me lonly son,
ye are  forgetting  me!, that  our  turfbrown  mummy  is  acoming,  alpilla,
beltilla, ciltilla, deltilla, running with her tidings, old  the news of the
great  big world, sonnies had a scrap, woewoewoe! bab's baby  walks at seven
months, waywayway ! bride leaves her raid at Punchestime, stud stoned before
a racecourseful, two belles that  make the one appeal, dry yanks will  visit
old  sod, and  fourtiered  skirts  are up, mesdames,  while Parimiknie wears
popular short legs, and twelve hows  to mix a  tipsy wake, did ye hear, colt
Cooney? did ye ever, filly Fortescue?  with a  beck, with  a spring, all her
rillringlets shaking, rocks drops in her tachie, tramtokens in her hair, all
waived  to  a point and  then all  inuendation,  little  oldfashioned mummy,
little  wonderful  mummy, ducking  under  bridges,  bellhopping  the  weirs,
dodging by a bit of bog, rapidshooting round  the bends, by Tallaght's green
hills and the pools of  the phooka  and a place they call it Blessington and
slipping sly by Sallynoggin, as happy as the day is wet, babbling, bubbling,
chattering to herself, deloothering the fields on  their elbows leaning with
the sloothering slide of her, giddygaddy, grannyma, gossipaceous Anna Livia.

     O tell me all about
     Anna Livia!  I want to hear  all  about Anna Livia. Well, you know Anna
Livia? Yes, of course,  we  all  know Anna  Livia. Tell me all. Tell me now.
You'll die when  you hear. Well, you know, when the  old cheb went futt  and
did what you know. Yes, I know, go on. Wash quit and don't be dabbling. Tuck
up  your  sleeves and loosen your talktapes. And don't butt  me  -- hike! --

Look at the dirt of it! He has all my water black on me. And it steeping and
stuping since this time last wik. How many  goes is it I wonder I washed it?
I know  by  heart the places he likes to saale, duddurty devil! Scorching my
hand and starving my famine to make his private linen public. Wallop it well
with  your battle and clean  it. My wrists are wrusty  rubbing  the  mouldaw
stains. And the dneepers of wet and the gangres of sin in it! What was it he
did a tail  at all  on Animal  Sendai? And how long  was he  under  loch and
neagh?  It was put in  the  newses what he  did, nicies and priers, the King
fierceas  Humphrey, with illysus distilling, exploits and all. But toms will
till.  I  know he  well. Temp untamed will hist for no man. As you spring so
shall you neap. O, the roughty old rappe!  Minxing marrage and  making loof.
Reeve Gootch was right and Reeve Drughad was sinistrous! And the cut of him!
And the strut of him! How he used  to hold his head as high as a howeth, the
famous eld duke alien, with a hump of  grandeur on him like a walking wiesel
rat.  And  his derry's  own drawl and his corksown blather  and his doubling
stutter and his gullaway swank. Ask Lictor  Hackett or Lector Reade of Garda
Growley  or the Boy with  the Billyclub. How elster  is he a  called at all?
Qu'appelle? Huges Caput Earlyfouler. Or where  was he  born or  how  was  he
found?  Urgothland, Tvistown on  the  Kattekat? New Hunshire, Concord on the
Merrimake? Who blocksmitt her saft anvil or yelled lep to her pail?  Was her

Flowey and  Mount on  the brink of time  makes wishes and fears for  a happy

another! Don Dom Dombdomb and his  wee follyo! Was his help inshored in  the
Stork and Pelican against bungelars,  flu and third risk parties? I heard he
dug good tin with his doll, delvan first and duvlin after, when he raped her
home, Sabrine asthore, in a parakeet's cage, by dredgerous lands and devious
delts, playing  catched  and mythed with the gleam of her shadda, (if a flic
had been there to pop up and pepper him!) past auld  min's manse and Maisons
Allfou and the rest of  incurables and  the last of  immurables, the  quaggy
waag for stumbling. Who sold you that jackalantern's tale? Pemmican's  pasty
pie! Not a grasshoop to ring her, not an  antsgrain of ore. In a  gabbard he
barqued it, the boat of life,  from the harbourless Ivernikan Okean, till he
spied  the loom of his landfall  and  he loosed two croakers from under  his
tilt, the gran Phenician rover.  By  the smell  of her  kelp  they made  the
pigeonhouse.  Like fun they did! But where was Himself,  the timoneer?  That
marchantman he suivied their  scutties  right over  the wash, his cameleer's
burnous breezing up on him, till with  his runagate  bowmpriss  he roade and
borst  her  bar.  Pilcomayo! Suchcaughtawan! And  the whale's  away with the
grayling!  Tune your  pipes  and  fall ahumming, you born ijypt, and  you're
nothing  short of one! Well,  ptellomey soon and curb your escumo. When they

Ay, Anna Livia. Do you know she was calling bakvandets sals from all around,
nyumba noo, chamba choo, to go in till him, her erring cheef, and tickle the
pontiff aisy-oisy?  She was? Gota  pot! Yssel  that the limmat?  As El Negro

to  go par  examplum  now  in  conservancy's  cause out  of telekinesis  and
proxenete you. For coxyt sake and  is that what she is? Botlettle  I thought
she'd act that loa.  Didn't you spot  her in her windaug, wubbling up on  an
osiery chair,  with a meusic before her all cunniform letters, pretending to
ribble a reedy derg on a fiddle she bogans without a band on? Sure she can't
fiddan a  dee,  with bow or abandon!  Sure,  she can't! Tista suck.  Well, I
never now heard the like of that!  Tell me moher. Tell me moatst.  Well, old
Humber  was as glommen as grampus, with the tares at his thor and the buboes
for ages and neither bowman nor shot abroad and bales allbrant on the crests
of rockies and nera lamp in kitchen or church and giant's holes in Grafton's
causeway and deathcap mushrooms round Funglus  grave and the great tribune's
barrow  all  darnels  occumule,  sittang  sambre  on his sett,  drammen  and
drommen,  usking  queasy  quizzers of his ruful  continence,  his childlinen
scarf  to  encourage  his  obsequies where  he'd check their debths  in that
mormon's thames, be questing and handsetl, hop, step and a deepend, with his
berths in their toiling moil, his swallower open  from swolf to fore and the
snipes of the gutter pecking his crocs, hungerstriking all alone and holding
doomsdag over hunselv, dreeing his weird, with his dander up, and his fringe
combed  over his  eygs  and droming on loft  till the sight  of the sternes,
after zwarthy kowse and weedy broeks and  the tits of buddy and the loits of
pest  and to  peer was Parish worth thette  mess. You'd think  all  was dodo
belonging to him how he durmed adranse in durance vaal. He had been belching
for severn years.  And there  she was, Anna Livia, she darent catch a winkle
of sleep,  purling around like a chit of a child, Wendawanda, a fingerthick,
in a Lapsummer  skirt and damazon cheeks,  for to  ishim bonzour to her dear
dubber Dan.  With neuphraties  and sault from his  maggias. And an  odd time
she'd cook him up blooms of fisk and lay to his heartsfoot her meddery eygs,
yayis,  and staynish beacons  on toasc  and a  cupenhave  so  weeshywashy of
Greenland's tay or a dzoupgan of Kaffue  mokau  an sable or Sikiang sukry or

as much as to say you sow and you sozh, and if he didn't peg the platteau on
her tawe, believe you me, she was safe enough. And then she'd esk to vistule
a hymn, The Heart Bowed Down or The Rakes of Mallow  or Chelli Michele's  La
Calumnia ? un Vermicelli or a balfy bit ov old Jo Robidson.  Sucho fuffing a
fifeing  'twould cut you in  two!  She'd  bate the  hen that crowed  on  the
turrace of Babbel. What harm if she knew how to cockle her mouth ! And not a
mag  out  of  Hum no more  than out of  the mangle  weight. Is that a faith?
That's the fact. Then  riding the ricka and  roya romanche, Annona, gebroren

brahming to him  down the  feedchute,  with her femtyfyx  kinds of  fondling
endings,  the  poother  rambling off  her nose:  Vuggybarney,  Wickerymandy!
Hello, ducky, please don't die! Do you know what she started cheeping after,

the  stult! Go away! Poor deef  old deary! Yare only teasing!  Anna  Liv? As
chalk is  my judge! And didn't she  up in sorgues and go and trot  doon  and
stand in  her douro, puffing her old dudheen, and every shirvant siligirl or
wensum  farmerette walking the pilend roads, Sawy, Fundally, Daery or Maery,
Milucre, Awny or Graw, usedn't she make her a simp or sign to slip inside by
the sullyport? You don't say, the sillypost? Bedouix but I do!  Calling them
in, one by one (To Blockbeddum here! Here the Shoebenacaddie!) and legging a
jig or so on the sihl to show them how to shake their benders and the dainty
how to bring to mind the gladdest garments out of sight and all the way of a
maid  with a man and making a sort of a cackling noise like two and  a penny
or half a crown and holding  up a silliver shiner. Lordy, lordy, did she so?
Well, of all  the ones ever I heard! Throwing all the neiss little whores in
the  world at  him! To inny captured wench you wish of no matter what sex of
pleissful ways  two adda tammar  a lizzy a lossie  to  hug and hab  haven in
Humpy's apron!
     And what was the wyerye rima she made! Odet! Odet! Tell me the trent of
it while I'm lathering hail out of Denis Florence MacCarthy's  combies. Rise
it, flut  ye, pian piena! I'm dying down  off my iodine feet  until I lerryn
Anna Livia's cushingloo, that was writ by one and rede by two and trouved by
a poule in the parco! I  can  see that, I  see you  are. How does it tummel?
Listen now. Are you listening? Yes, yes ! Idneed I am ! Tarn your ore ouse !
Essonne inne !
     By earth end  the cloudy  but I badly went e brandnew  bankside, bedamp
and I do, and a plumper at that!
     For the  putty affair I  have is wore out, so it is, sitting,yaping and
waiting  for my old  Dane  hodder  dodderer,  my life in death companion, my
frugal key of our larder,  my much-altered camel's hump, my jointspoiler, my
maymoon's honey, my  fool to the last Decemberer, to wake himself out of his
winter's doze and bore me down like he used to.
     Is there irwell a lord of the manor or a knight of the shire at strike,
I wonder, that'd  dip me a dace or  two in cash  for washing and darning his
worshipful socks for him now we're run out of horsebrose and milk?
     Only for my short  Brittas bed made's as snug as it smells it's out I'd
lep and off  with me to the  slobs  deua Tolka or the  plage  au Clontarf to
feale the gay aire of my salt troublin bay and the race of the saywint up me
ambushure.
     Onon!  Onon!  tell me  more. Tell me every tiny teign.  I want  to know
every  single ingul. Down to  what made the potters fly into  jagsthole. And
why were the vesles vet. That  homa fever's  winning me wome. If a mahun  of
the horse but  hard me! We'd be bundukiboi  meet askarigal.  Well, now comes
the hazelhatchery part. After  Clondalkin  the  Kings's  Inns. We'll soon be
there with the freshet. How many aleveens had  she in  tool? I can't rightly
rede  you that. Close only knows. Some say she had three figures to fill and
confined   herself   to   a   hundred  eleven,   wan  bywan  bywan,   making
meanacuminamoyas.  Olaph lamm et, all  that  pack? We won't have room in the
kirkeyaard. She  can't remember half of the cradlenames she  smacked on them
by the grace of her  boxing  bishop's infallible slipper,  the cane for Kund
and abbles for  Eyolf and ayther nayther for Yakov Yea. A  hundred and  how?
They did  well  to  rechristien her  Pluhurabelle.  O loreley! What a loddon
lodes! Heigh  ho!  But it's quite on the cards she'll shed more and merrier,
twills and trills,  sparefours and  spoilfives, nordsihkes and sudsevers and
ayes and neins to a litter. Grandfarthring nap and Messamisery and the knave
of all knaves and the joker. Heehaw! She must have been a  gadabount  in her
day, so she must, more than  most. Shoal she was,  gidgad. She had a flewmen
of her  owen. Then a toss nare scared that lass, so aimai moe, that's agapo!
Tell me, tell me, how cam she camlin through all her fellows, the neckar she
was, the diveline? Casting her perils before  our swains from Fonte-in-Monte
to Tidingtown  and from Tidingtown  tilhavet.  Linking one  and knocking the
next,  tapting a flank  and tipting a jutty and palling in and pietaring out
and clyding by on her eastway. Waiwhou was the first thurever burst? Someone
he was, whuebra they were, in a tactic  attack  or in single combat. Tinker,
tilar, souldrer, salor,  Pieman  Peace or Polistaman.  That's the thing  I'm
elwys on  edge  to  esk.  Push  up  and  push  vardar  and  come  to  uphill
headquarters!  Was it waterlows year, after Grattan or Flood,  or when maids
were in Arc or when  three  stood hosting? Fidaris will find where the Doubt
arises  like Nieman from  Nirgends found  the  Nihil. Worry you sighin  foh,
Albern, O Anser? Untie the gemman's fistiknots, Qvic and Nuancee! She  can't
put her hand on him for the moment. Tez thelon langlo, walking weary! Such a
loon waybashwards to row!  She sid herself she hardly knows whuon the annals
her graveller was, a dynast of  Leinster, a wolf  of the sea, or what he did
or how blyth she played or  how,  when, why,  where and who offon he jumpnad
her and how it  was gave her away. She was  just a young  thin pale soft shy
slim slip of a thing  then,  sauntering, by silvamoonlake and he was a heavy
trudging lurching lieabroad of a Curraghman, making his hay for whose sun to
shine on, as tough as the oaktrees (peats be with them!) used to rustle that
time down  by the dykes of  killing  Kildare, for forstfellfoss with a plash
across her. She  thought she's sankh neathe the ground  with  nymphant shame
when he gave her the tigris eye ! O happy fault ! Me wish it was he ! You're
wrong there, corribly wrong! Tisn't only tonight  you're anacheronistic!  It
was ages behind that when nullahs were nowhere, in county Wickenlow,  garden
of  Erin, before she  ever dreamt  she'd lave Kilbride and  go foaming under
Horsepass bridge, with the great southerwestern windstorming her  traces and
the  midland's grainwaster asarch  for her track, to  wend her ways byandby,
robecca or  worse, to spin and to grind, to swab and  to thrash, for all her
golden   lifey   in   the   barleyfields   and  pennylotts   of   Humphrey's
fordofhurdlestown and  lie with a landleaper, wellingtonorseher. Alesse, the
lagos of girly days! For the dove of the dunas! Wasut? Izod? Are you sarthin
suir?  Not  where the Finn  fits into  the Mourne, not where  the Nore takes
lieve of Blчm,  not  where the  Braye divarts the Farer, not  where  the Moy
changez  her minds twixt Cullin  and Conn  tween  Cunn and Collin? Or  where
Neptune  sculled and Tritonville rowed and leandros  three  bumped  heroines
two? Neya, narev, nen, nonni, nos ! Then whereabouts in Ow and Ovoca? Was it
yst  with  wyst or Lucan Yokan or  where the hand of man has never set foot?
Dell me  where,  the fairy  ferse time! I will if you  listen.  You know the
dinkel dale of Luggelaw?  Well, there once dwelt a  local  heremite, Michael
Arklow was his riverend name,  (with  many  a sigh I aspersed his lavabibs!)
and one  venersderg  in  junojuly, oso sweet and so cool  and so  limber she
looked, Nance the Nixie, Nanon L'Escaut, in  the  silence, of the sycomores,
all listening, the kindling curves you simply can't stop feeling, he plunged
both of his newly anointed hands, the core of his  cushlas, in her singimari
saffron strumans of  hair, parting  them  and soothing her  and mingling it,
that  was  deepdark and ample like this  red bog  at  sundown. By that  Vale
Vowclose's  lucydlac,  the reignbeau's  heavenarches  arronged orranged her.
Afrothdizzying galbs, her enamelled eyes indergoading him  on to the  vierge
violetian. Wish a wish! Why a why? Mavro ! Letty Lerck's lafing light  throw
those  laurals now on her daphdaph teasesong  petrock. Maass! But  the majik
wavus has elfun anon  meshes. And Simba the  Slayer of his Oga is  slewd. He
cuddle not help himself, thurso that hot on him, he had to  forget the  monk
in  the  man so, rubbing her up and smoothing her down, he baised his lippes
in  smiling mood, kiss akiss  after kisokushk (as  he  warned  her niver to,
niver to, nevar)  on Anna-na-Poghue's of  the freckled forehead. While you'd
parse  secheressa  she hielt  her souff'.  But she  ruz two feet hire in her
aisne aestumation.  And steppes on stilts ever since. That was kissuahealing
with  bantur for balm!  O, wasn't he  the bold priest?  And  wasn't she  the
naughty  Livvy? Nautic Naama's now her navn. Two lads  in scoutsch  breeches
went   through   her  before  that,  Barefoot   Burn   and   Wallowme  Wade,
Lugnaquillia's noblesse pickts, before she had a hint of a hair at her fanny
to  hide  or a bossom  to tempt a  birch canoedler  not to  mention a bulgic
porterhouse barge. And ere  that again, leada, laida, all unraidy, too faint
to buoy the fairiest  rider, too frail to flirt  with  a cygnet's plume, she
was licked  by a hound, Chirripa-Chirruta,  while poing  her  pee,  pure and
simple,  on  the  spur  of  the  hill   in  old  Kippure,  in  birdsong  and
shearingtime,  but  first  of all, worst  of  all,  the wiggly  livvly,  she
sideslipped out by a gap in the Devil's glen while Sally her nurse was sound
asleep in  a sloot and, feefee fiefie, fell over a spillway before she found
her stride and lay  and wriggled in all the stagnant  black  pools of  rainy
under a fallow coo and  she laughed innocefree  with her limbs  aloft and  a
whole drove of maiden hawthorns blushing and looking askance upon her.
     Drop me  the sound of  the findhorn's  name, Mtu  or Mti, sombogger was
wisness.  And drip me  why in the flenders was she frickled. And trickle  me
through was she marcellewaved or was it weirdly a wig she wore. And whitside
did they droop their glows in their florry, aback to wist or affront to sea?
In fear to hear the dear so near  or longing loth and  loathing longing? Are
you in the swim or are you out? O go in, go on, go an! I mean about what you
know.  I know  right well  what you mean. Rother! You'd  like the coifs  and
guimpes, snouty, and me to do the  greasy jub on old Veronica's wipers. What
am I rancing now  and  I'll thank  you? Is  it a pinny or is it  a surplice?
Arran, where's  your nose? And  where's  the starch?  That's not the  vesdre
benediction smell. I can tell from here by their eau de Colo and  the  scent
of her oder they're Mrs Magrath's.  And you ought to have aird them. They've
moist come  off her. Creases in silk  they are,  not crampton lawn. Baptiste
me,  father, for she has sinned! Through her catchment  ring she freed  them
easy, with her hips' hurrahs for  her knees'dontelleries. The only parr with
frills in  old the plain. So  they are, I declare! Welland well! If tomorrow
keeps fine who'll  come  tripping to sightsee? How'll? Ask  me next  what  I
haven't  got!  The Belvedarean exhibitioners. In  their  cruisery  caps  and
oarsclub colours. What hoo,  they band! And what hoa, they buck! And here is
her  nubilee letters too. Ellis on  quay in  scarlet thread. Linked for  the
world on a flushcaloured field.  Annan exe after  to show  they're not Laura
Keown's. O, may  the  diabolo twisk  your seifety pin! You child  of Mammon,
Kinsella's Lilith! Now  who has  been tearing the leg of her drawars on her?
Which  leg is it? The  one with the bells on  it. Rinse  them out  and aston
along with you! Where did I  stop? Never stop! Continuarration!  You're  not
there yet. I amstel waiting. Garonne, garonne!
     Well,   after   it  was  put   in   the  Mericy   Cordial   Mendicants'
Sitterdag-Zindeh-Munaday  Wakeschrift  (for  once they  sullied  their white
kidloves,  chewing  cuds  after their  dinners of cheeckin  and beggin, with
their show us it here and their mind out of that and their when you're quite
finished with the reading matarial), even the snee that snowdon his  hoaring

Exsquire! Everywhere erriff you went and every bung you arver dropped  into,
in cit or suburb or in addled areas, the Rose and  Bottle  or Phoenix Tavern
or Power's Inn  or Jude's Hotel or wherever you scoured the countryside from
Nannywater  to  Vartryville or from Porta  Lateen to the  lootin quarter you
found his ikom etsched tipside down or the cornerboys cammocking his guy and
Morris  the  Man, with  the role  of a  royss in his  turgos  the  turrible,
(Evropeahahn cheic house, unskimmed sooit and yahoort,  hamman now cheekmee,
Ahdahm this way make, Fatima, half tum!) reeling and railing round the local
as  the peihos piped  und ubanjees twanged,  with  oddfellow's  triple tiara
busby   rotundarinking   round   his   scalp.   Like   Pate-by-the-Neva   or
Pete-over-Meer. This is the Hausman all paven and  stoned, that cribbed  the
Cabin that never was owned  that cocked his  leg and hennad his Egg. And the
mauldrin rabble around  him  in areopage, fracassing  a great bingkan cagnan
with  their timpan crowders. Mind your Grimmfather! Think of  your Ma!  Hing
the  Hong is his jove's hangnomen ! Lilt a bolero, bulling a law ! She swore
on croststyx nyne wyndabouts she's be level  with all the snags of them yet.
Par  the Vulnerable  Virgin's Mary  del Dame!  So she  said to herself she'd
frame a plan to fake a  shine,  the mischiefmaker, the like of it you niever
heard. What  plan? Tell me quick and dongu so crould! What the  meurther did
she mague? Well, she bergened a zakbag, a  shammy mailsack, with the lend of
a loan of the light of his lampion, off one of her swapsons, Shaun the Post,
and  then she went and  consulted  her chapboucqs, old  Mot  Moore,  Casey's
Euclid  and  the  Fashion  Display  and made herself tidal  to  join in  the
mascarete. O  gig  goggle  of  gigguels.  I  can't  tell you  how!  It's too
screaming to rizo, rabbit it all! Minneha, minnehi minaaehe,  minneho! O but
you must,  you must  really! Make my hear it gurgle gurgle, like  the farest
gargle  gargle in the dusky dirgle  dargle! By the holy well of Mulhuddart I
swear I'd pledge my chanza getting to heaven through Tirry and Killy's mount
of impiety to  hear it all, aviary word! O, leave me my  faculties, woman, a
while! If you  don't like my story  get  out of the punt. Well, have it your
own way, so. Here, sit down and do as you're bid. Take my stroke and bend to
your bow. Forward in and pull your overthepoise! Lisp it slaney and crisp it
quiet. Deel me longsome. Tongue  your  time now. Breathe thet deep. Thouat's
the fairway. Hurry slow and scheldt you go.  Lynd us your blessed ashes here
till I scrub the canon's underpants. Flow now. Ower more. And pooleypooley.
     First she let her  hair fal and down it flussed to her feet its teviots
winding coils.  Then,  mothernaked, she sampood herself  with  galawater and
fraguant pistania mud,  wupper  and lauar,  from  crown  to  sole.  Next she
greesed the groove of her keel, warthes and wears and mole and  itcher, with
antifouling butterscatch and turfentide and  serpenthyme and  with leafmould
she ushered round prunella isles  and eslats  dun, quincecunct, allover  her
little mary. Peeld gold of  waxwork her jellybelly and her grains of incense
anguille bronze. And after that she wove a garland for her hair. She pleated
it.  She  plaited  it.  Of  meadowgrass  and  riverflags,  the  bulrush  and
waterweed,  and  of  fallen  griefs of  weeping  willow.  Then she made  her
bracelets and her anklets and her armlets and a jetty amulet for necklace of
clicking cobbles and pattering pebbles  and rumbledown rubble, richmond  and
rehr, of Irish rhunerhinerstones and shellmarble bangles. That done,  a dawk
of smut to her  airy ey, Annushka Lutetiavitch  Pufflovah,  and the lellipos
cream to her lippeleens and the pick of the paintbox for her pommettes, from
strawbirry reds to extra  violates, and  she sendred her boudeloire maids to
His Affluence, Ciliegia  Grande  and Kirschie  Real, the two chirsines, with
respecks from his missus, seepy and sewery, and a request might she passe of
him for a minnikin. A call to pay and light a taper, in Brie-on-Arrosa, back
in  a sprizzling. The cock  striking  mine, the stalls bridely sign, there's
Zambosy waiting for Me! She said she wouldn't be half her length away. Then,
then, as soon as the lump his back was turned, with her mealiebag slang over
her shulder, Anna Livia, oysterface, forth of her bassein came.
     Describe her! Hustle along, why can't you? Spitz on the iern while it's
hot. I wouldn't miss her for irthing  on  nerthe. Not for the lucre of lomba
strait. Oceans of Gaud, I mosel hear that! Ogowe presta! Leste, before Julia
sees her!  Ishekarry  and washemeskad,  the  carishy caratimaney? Whole lady
fair? Duodecimoroon? Bon a ventura? Malagassy? What had she  on, the  liddel
oud  oddity? How much did she  scallop,  harness and weights? Here  she  is,
Amnisty Ann! Call her calamity electrifies man.
     No  electress at all but old Moppa  Necessity, angin mother  of injons.
I'll tell you a test.  But  you must sit still. Will you hold your peace and
listen well to what I am going to  say now? It might have been ten or twenty
to one of the night of Allclose or the nexth of April when  the flip of  her
hoogly igloo flappered and out toetippit a bushman woman, the dearest little
moma ever you saw, nodding around her, all smiles, with ems of embarras  and
aues to awe, between two ages, a judyqueen, not  up to your elb. Quick, look
at her  cute and  saise her  quirk for the bicker she lives the slicker  she
grows. Save us and tagus ! No more? Werra where  in ourthe did you ever pick
a Lambay chop as big as  a  battering ram?  Ay, you're  right. I'm  epte  to
forgetting, Like Liviam Liddle did Loveme Long. The linth of my hough, I say
!  She  wore a ploughboy's  nailstudded  clogs,  a pair of  ploughfields  in
themselves: a sugarloaf hat with a gaudyquiviry peak and a band of gorse for
an arnoment  and a hundred streamers dancing off it and  a guildered  pin to
pierce it:  owlglassy bicycles boggled her eyes: and a fishnetzeveil for the
sun not to spoil the wrinklings of her hydeaspects: potatorings boucled  the
loose   laubes   of   her  laudsnarers:   her  nude  cuba   stockings   were
salmospotspeckled: she  sported  a  galligo shimmy of hazevaipar tinto  that
never was fast till it ran  in  the washing: stout stays, the rivals,  lined
her length:  her  bloodorange  bockknickers, a two  in one  garment,  showed
natural  nigger boggers,  fancyfastened, free to  undo: her  blackstripe tan
joseph was sequansewn and teddybearlined, with wavy rushgreen epaulettes and
a leadown here and there of royal swansruff: a brace of gaspers stuck in her
hayrope  garters:  her  civvy  codroy  coat  with  alpheubett  buttons   was
boundaried  round  with  a  twobar  tunnel  belt:  a  fourpenny bit in  each
pocketside weighed her safe from the blowaway windrush; she had a clothespeg
tight astride on her joki's nose and she kep on grinding a sommething quaint
in her fiumy mouth and  the rrreke of the fluve of the tail of  the gawan of
her snuffdrab siouler's skirt trailed  ffiffty odd  Irish  miles behind  her
lungarhodes.
     Hellsbells, I'm sorry I missed her! Sweet gumptyum and nobody fainted !
But in whelk of her mouths? Was her naze  alight? Everyone that saw her said
the  dowce little delia looked a  bit queer. Lotsy  trotsy, mind the poddle!
Missus,  be  good  and don't fol in the say! Fenny poor  hex  she  must have
charred. Kickhams a frumpier ever  you saw! Making mush mullet's eyes at her
boys dobelon. And they  crowned her  their chariton queen, all the maids. Of
the may? You  don't say!  Well  for her she couldn't see herself. I recknitz
wharfore the darling murrayed  her  mirror. She did? Mersey me! There was  a
koros  of   drouthdropping   surfacemen,   boomslanging   and   plugchewing,
fruiteyeing and flowerfeeding, in contemplation  of the fluctuation and  the
undification of her filimentation, lolling and leasing on North Lazers' Waal
all eelfare week by the Jukar Yoick's and as soon as they saw her meander by
that marritime way in her grasswinter's weeds and  twigged who was under her
archdeaconess bonnet,  Avondale's fish and  Clarence's poison,  sedges an to
aneber, Wit-uponCrutches to Master Bates: Between our two southsates and the
granite they're warming, or her face has been lifted or Alp has doped!
     But what was the game in her  mixed baggyrhatty?  Just the tembo in her
tumbo or pilipili from her  pepperpot? Saas and taas and specis bizaas.  And
where in thunder did she plunder? Fore the  battle or efter the ball? I want
to  get it  frisk from the  soorce.  I aubette  my  bearb  it's worth  while
poaching  on! Shake  it  up, do,  do! That's  a good old son of a  ditch!  I
promise I'll  make it worth your while. And I don't mean maybe. Nor yet with
a goodfor. Spey me pruth and I'll tale you true.
     Well, arundgirond in a waveney lyne aringarouma  she pattered and swung
and sidled,  dribbling her boulder through narrowa mosses,  the diliskydrear
on  our drier side  and  the vilde  vetchvine agin us,  curara here, careero
there,  not knowing which  medway  or weser  to strike it, edereider, making
chattahoochee all to her  ain chichiu, like Santa Claus  at the cree  of the
pale and puny, nistling to hear for their tiny hearties, her arms encircling
Isolabella, then running with reconciled Romas and Reims,  on like a lech to
be off  like a dart,  then bathing Dirty Hans' spatters with spittle, with a
Christmas box apiece for  aisch  and iveryone  of  her childer, the birthday
gifts  they dreamt they gabe her, the  spoiled she fleetly laid at our door!
On the matt, by the pourch and inunder the cellar. The rivulets ran aflod to
see, the glashaboys, the pollynooties. Out of the paunschaup on to the pyre.
And  they all about  her, juvenile leads and ingenuinas,  from  the slime of
their slums and artesaned wellings,  rickets and riots, like the  Smyly boys
at  their vicereine's levee. Vivi vienne, little  Annchen! Vielo Anna,  high
life! Sing  us a sula,  O,  susuria! Ausone  sidulcis!  Hasn't  she  tambre!
Chipping her  and raising a bit of a chir or a jary every  dive she'd neb in
her  culdee  sacco  of  wabbash  she   raabed  and   reach  out  her  maundy
meerschaundize, poor souvenir as  per  ricorder and all for sore aringarung,
stinkers  and  heelers,  laggards  and primelads,  her  furzeborn  sons  and
dribblederry daughters,  a  thousand and one of them,  and wickerpotluck for
each of them. For evil  and  ever. And  kiks the buch. A tinker's bann and a

Chummy  the  Guardsman;  for  sulky  Pender's  acid  nephew  delto'd  drops,

     My colonial, wardha bagful! A bakereen's  dusind with  tithe tillies to
boot. That's what you may call a tale of a tub ! And Hibernonian market! All
that  and  more  under  one crinoline  envelope  if you dare  to  break  the
porkbarrel seal. No wonder they'd run from her pison plague. Throw  us  your
hudson soap for the honour of Clane! The wee taste the water left. I'll raft
it  back, first thing in  the marne. Merced mulde! Ay, and don't  forget the
reckitts I  lohaned you.  You've  all the swirls your  side  of the current.
Well, am I to blame for that if I have? Who said you're to blame for that if
you have? You're  a bit  on the  sharp side. I'm on the wide. Only snuffers'
cornets drifts my way that the cracka dvine chucks out of his cassock,  with
her estheryear's marsh  narcissus to make  him recant his vanitty fair. Foul
strips  of his chinook's bible  I  do  be reading,  dodwell  disgustered but
chickled with chuckles at the tittles is drawn  on the tattlepage. Senior ga

(Sheridan's) old House by the Coachyard and Mill (J.) On Woman with Ditto on
the Floss. Ja, a swamp for Altmuehler and a  stone for his flossies ! I know
how  racy they move his wheel. My hands are blawcauld between isker and suda
like that piece of pattern chayney there, lying below. Or where is it? Lying
beside the sedge I  saw  it. Hoangho,  my sorrow, I've lost it! Aimihi! With
that turbary water who could see? So near and yet so  far! But O,  gihon!  I
lovat a gabber. I could listen to maure and moravar again. Regn onder river.
Flies do your float. Thick is the life for mere.
     Well, you know or don't you kennet or  haven't I told you every telling
has a taling and that's  the he  and the she of it.  Look, look, the dusk is
growing! My branches lofty are taking root. And my  cold cher's gone ashley.
Fieluhr? Filou! What age is at? It saon  is late. 'Tis endless now senne eye
or  erewone last saw Waterhouse's clogh. They took  it  asunder, I hurd thum
sigh. When will  they reassemble it? O,  my back, my back, my bach! I'd want
to go to Aches-les-Pains. Pingpong!  There's  the Belle for  Sexaloitez! And
Concepta  de  Send-us-pray!  Pang!  Wring out the clothes! Wring in the dew!

here now?  Ay, we will.  Flip ! Spread on your bank and I'll spread  mine on
mine. Flep! It's what  I'm doing. Spread ! It's churning chill. Der went  is
rising.  I'll lay a few stones  on the hostel  sheets. A man  and his  bride
embraced between  them.  Else I'd have sprinkled  and folded them only.  And
I'll tie my butcher's apron here. It's suety yet. The strollers will pass it
by.  Six shifts,  ten kerchiefs,  nine to hold  to the fire and this for the
code,  the convent napkins,twelve,  one  baby's  shawl.  Good mother Jossiph
knows, she said. Whose head? Mutter snores? Deataceas!  Wharnow are alle her
childer,  say?  In  kingdome  gone or power  to come  or  gloria  be to them
farther? Allalivial, allalluvial! Some  here,  more no more, more again lost
alla stranger. I've heard tell that same brooch  of the Shannons was married
into a family in Spain. And all the Dunders de Dunnes in Markland's Vineland
beyond Brendan's herring pool takes  number nine in  yangsee's hats. And one
of Biddy's  beads went  bobbing till she  rounded up lost histereve  with  a
marigold  and a  cobbler's  candle  in a side strain of  a  main drain  of a
manzinahurries off Bachelor's  Walk.  But all that's left to the last of the
Meaghers in the loup of the years prefixed and between is one kneebuckle and
two hooks in the front. Do you tell  me.  that now? I do in troth. Orara por
Orbe  and poor Las  Animas! Ussa, Ulla,  we're umbas  all! Mezha, didn't you

but husheth the lethest zswound. Oronoko ! What's your trouble? Is that  the
great Finnleader himself in his joakimono on his statue riding the high hone
there forehengist? Father of Otters, it is himself! Yonne there! Isset that?
On  Fallareen  Common? You're thinking of  Astley's Amphitheayter where  the
bobby restrained you making sugarstuck pouts to the ghostwhite horse of  the
Peppers.  Throw the cobwebs  from your eyes, woman,  and spread your washing
proper! It's well I know your sort of  slop. Flap! Ireland  sober is Ireland
stiff Lord  help  you, Maria, full  of  grease,  the  load is with me!  Your
prayers.  I  sonht zo! Madammangut! Were you  lifting your elbow,  tell  us,
glazy  cheeks,  in Conway's Carrigacurra canteen? Was  I what, hobbledyhips?
Flop! Your rere gait's creakorheuman bitts your  butts disagrees. Amn't I up
since the  damp tawn, marthared  mary  allacook,  with Corrigan's  pulse and
varicoarse veins, my  pramaxle smashed, Alice Jane in decline and my oneeyed
mongrel  twice run over,  soaking  and  bleaching boiler rags, and  sweating
cold, a  widow like me, for to deck my tennis  champion son,  the laundryman
with  the lavandier  flannels?  You won your  limpopo  limp  fron  the husky
hussars when Collars and  Cuffs was heir to the town and your  slur gave the
stink to Carlow. Holy Scamander, I sar it again! Near the golden falls. Icis
on us! Seints of light! Zezere! Subdue your noise, you hamble creature! What
is it but a  blackburry growth  or the dwyergray ass them four  old  codgers
owns. Are you meanam Tarpey and  Lyons and Gregory? I meyne now, thank  all,
the four of them, and the  roar of  them, that draves that stray in the mist
and  old  Johnny  MacDougal  along with them. Is  that  the Poolbeg  flasher
beyant, pharphar, or a fireboat coasting nyar the Kishtna or a glow I behold
within a hedge or my Garry come back from the Indes? Wait till  the honeying
of the lune, love! Die eve, little eve, die! We see that wonder in your eye.
We'll  meet again,  we'll part  once more.  The spot I'll  seek if the  hour
you'll  find.   My  chart   shines  high   where   the  blue  milk's  upset.
Forgivemequick, I'm  going!  Bubye! And you,  pluck your watch, forgetmenot.
Your evenlode. So save to  jurna's end! My sights are swimming thicker on me
by the shadows to this place.  I sow  home slowly now by own way,  moyvalley
way. Towy I too, rathmine.
     Ah, but she was the queer old skeowsha anyhow, Anna Livia, trinkettoes!
And sure he was the quare old buntz too, Dear Dirty Dumpling, foostherfather
of fingalls and dotthergills. Gammer  and gaffer we're  all their gangsters.
Hadn't he seven dams to wive him? And every dam  had her seven crutches. And
every crutch had its seven hues. And each hue had a differing cry. Sudds for
me and supper  for  you and the doctor's bill for Joe John. Befor! Bifur! He
married  his markets,  cheap by foul,  I  know,  like any  Etrurian Catholic
Heathen, in their pinky limony creamy  birnies  and their  turkiss  indienne
mauves. But at milkidmass who  was the  spouse?  Then all that was was fair.
Tys Elvenland ! Teems of times and happy returns. The seim anew. Ordovico or
viricordo. Anna  was, Livia  is, Plurabelle's to  be.  Northmen's thing made
southfolk's place  but  howmulty plurators made eachone in  person? Latin me
that,  my  trinity scholard,  out  of eure sanscreed into oure eryan! Hircus
Civis Eblanensis!  He had buckgoat paps on him,  soft ones for  orphans. Ho,
Lord ! Twins of his bosom. Lord save us! And ho! Hey? What all men. Hot? His
tittering daughters of. Whawk?
     Can't  hear  with  the waters  of. The chittering waters of. Flittering
bats, fieldmice bawk talk. Ho! Are  you  not  gone ahome? What Thom  Malone?
Can't hear with bawk of bats, all thim liffeying waters of. Ho, talk save us
! My foos won't moos. I  feel as old as yonder elm. A tale told  of Shaun or
Shem? All Livia's daughtersons. Dark hawks hear us. Night! Night! My ho head
halls. I feel as heavy as  yonder stone. Tell me of John or Shaun?  Who were
Shem and Shaun the living sons or daughters of? Night now! Tell me, tell me,
tell me, elm! Night night!  Telmetale of stem or stone. Beside  the rivering
waters of, hitherandthithering waters of. Night!
