I know not, but my character speaks in cockney,
Southern, English brogue, a female male
A youngster who's very old.
I won't be gone long,
-You come too.

Unbidden and unknown-
Spring up on barren ground,
He rides a charging steed.


Taps are being played
In the middle of me
To say good-bye
To that part that
