Excerpt from “The Final Word in Sir Edmund Moulde’s Poetry and Prose” by Sir Wather Krink, PhD, DFA:

Oh don’t give me that, you pompous old windbag. If you had half a mind, you wouldn’t suggest that Sir Edmund Moulde’s journey is one of divine mandate? Of course not! Everyone can rise from obscurity and poverty to become something better than their humble beginnings suggest! All it takes is the adoption by someone with incredible resources and social power! I can do no less for evidence than direct you to Sir Edmund Moulde’s entire collection of poetry, as to select a single poem would do nothing but demean this great man’s legacy! You hag!
