old people make, as if one's teeth don't fit, without being false.
You're well out of it"

loved face and give you a squalling red daughter.
no, but i will come inside you and you will be my daughter"

Sing Ho! to the New Keyboard

The time, they say, for love, my love.
Now is the time for all good
Men of love to come (Love-to-come!)
To the aid of their partly."
