I'm a Briar wild and free
The Empire's not enough for me
I'll make my way and leave you be
How dare you call it heresy?

Crescencia's cult grows large and strong
To win our freedom won't take long
We'll win with Geoffrey Casillon
How dare you say we're doing wrong?

I'm a Briar wild and free
The Empire's not enough for me
I'll make my way and leave you be
How dare you call it heresy?

We'll take a land to call our own
'Tween Barren lands and Semmerholme
We'll stay and reap just what we've sown
How dare you stop us going home?

I'm a Briar wild and free
The Empire's not enough for me
I'll make my way and leave you be
How dare you call it heresy?

So much we've won, so much to gain
We've taken land, we rule Montane
We will not bow our heads again
How dare you call our plans insane?

I'm a Briar wild and free
The Empire's not enough for me
I'll make my way and leave you be
How dare you call it heresy?

No place to run, no place to hide,
The orcs are pressing every side
It's slavery or suicide
How now can freedom be our guide?

I'm a Briar wild and free
The Empire's not enough for me
I'll make my way and leave you be
How dare you call it heresy?

We hadn't really thought ahead
No Wisdom shown and so misled
My family and my friends are dead
We wore our freedom wet and red

I'm a Briar, can you see
The way was not enough for me
I'm chained and held in slavery
The price of Freedom Heresy.

Last night's thought went undeveloped, thanks to a long and necessary conversation with Pol, but I would have gone on to say that realising the whiteness and maleness of my favoured poems' writers has prompted me to seek out new poetry that's less monochrome. All the tabs with poetry in are now closed, but showcasing poetry will be something nice to do for another time. Seeking out new poetry is nearly always a good use of spare time.

I found glee in consumerism when Sessifet drove me to a big supermarket to get all the things I can live without but still want and can't get in Horwich itself. Things like strange seed mix snacks, malt beer, frozen chicken livers, pear in cranberry juice, cherry cordial and juice, plastic pool noodles for indoor staff-fighting, chocolate cream sundaes, ginger and honey tea, sesame seed bread and, of course, a large soft hairy rubber multicoloured light-up ball. The current one (the last one died) is yellow, green and, around the middle, sky blue all sprayed on possibly glow-in-the-dark white hairy rubber. Pol's fallen in love with it already.

It strikes me that our Scottish Nibling will soon be old enough to play with things like this. :0)

Lots of things I've been unable to do suddenly seem entirely possible and likely, so I foresee a few days of being more or less in my room busy working on them. I'll take this computer up there tonight and settle in. I have presents to wrap and cards to write out, fabric to cut up and nail down, a bag to sew. And sew on and sew on.

Intellectually, I still have more on my plate than I can handle.

BTW, does anyone know how I can get my mouse mood thingies for DW? Or just a different mood thingy?

I haven't been thinking about Iran. I probably should have (it's news, the election was ripped off, it's important) but seriously, no spoons. I've been not playing Mafia, not reading a manuscript, not doing much. The generalised guilt has been getting me down, so back to daily updates it is, then.

I've been thinking about gifts, presents, the nature of gift-giving, all of which has kicked me into gear on a few long-put-off things, like sending rooibus to Spain to my former, very wonderful landlady (who hates the word 'landlady' because, she says, it reminds her of Mrs Mopp). I can't think of her without thinking of poetry. Specifically, They Fuck You Up, Your Mum And Dad by Philip Larkin. My own favourite poems are either
