Reserata Carcerem XLIX

*Reserata Carcerem XLIX* Yearning yore rehearsed a sage t' pawn; voluptuous voice moist myst'ry pored: "Holla, retire thou yet t' cursed castle, o' yond thy lanky limb nudge nimble?" Punctured pawn leased t' taunted tongue - mute. His stance ö porous papyrus drew, b' which sewn sage's ire was kindled; rustic rage trod brain's track 'n dribbles. Ergo traded fists th' sage with pawn; cloned catastrophe pruned plagued call. Drooling death per ho skipped t' lured lieu, ä gaunt grief basked 'n gay ben's belie puked. Anon, lift'd sewn sage punctured pawn, 'n' apprised Athena oped breath's gourd.
