The Long View


Lament (Part VI)

Hi there, I’m Crifell. Nice view isn’t it? Do you come here often,
I’m here most days. Sometimes it’s quite misty and that will soften
the skyline. When it’s clear up here the view is terrific, you can see
all the way to the Isle of Man. You know, the place with three
legs. Oh yes, you’re quite right. I wondered about that too,
and if you went and bought two pairs you’d end up with one shoe
left over. There’s Hadrian’s Wall, built to collect taxes, to pay the legion’s wages.
Ah, yes. The soldiers of The Empire! You know, I haven’t seen them around for ages.
