Dream Song 124: Behold I bring you tidings of great joy

 Behold I bring you tidings of great joy—
especially now that the snow & gale are still—
for Henry is delivered.
Not only is he delivered from the gale but he has a little one.
He's out of jail also.
It is a boy.
Henry's pleasure in this unusual event reminds me of the extra told at Hollywood & Vine that TV cameras were focussed on him personally then & there and 'Just a few words .
.
.
Is it what you meant? Was there a genuine sign?' Couvade was always Henry's favourite custom, better than the bride biting off the penises, pal, remember? All the brothers marrying her in turn & dying mutilated until the youngest put in instead a crowbar, pal, and pulled out not only her teeth but also his brothers' dongs & no doubt others'.
