Interlude: A Devil Despairs

Dunstan and Devil

A devil climbed aloft from the fiery world below,

Hoping to sow discord between every fine fellow;

Meeting first a politician, the poor thing looked askance–

‘One more skilled than I already leads the infernal dance!’

Your narrator begs your indulgence this week as she is feeling an attack of the vapours coming on from all the responsibilities clamouring for attention. Anon!
