		The Cunning Man's Curse of the Throated Cord 
	 
	Broken swallows of the throated cord:
	the windpipe's gusts 
	bewail the fluted spray of words;
	all speech bereft, berated, 
	measured by the prod of gese:
	the twisted antlered beastie fear 
	of frogs and newts, declare;
	why, why  the bells do sound, 
	the Christian god doth die his death in thee
	but in his mind he rings a bell 
	of dark and light to death us tell;
	when minds will cast us in the pit, 
	unbind your mind, hitch up your tongue: 
	speak out the word that tells it all;
	blest with richness of thy speech, 
	this guest might turn his heart in twain,
	and know the secret of your art; 
	O worthy one of cunning ways:
	speak to us of your nodding tongue, 
	today; speak out, in thought not action 
	of the serpent tongues of blasted wen's:
	those secret runes the wizards know 
	that hold the binding spells of doom 
	for those who challenge words and deeds 
	of fallen kings; so know the truth of troth, 
	dear friend, cast not your thought
	in action's ears before the sun and moon do set
	unless you, too, have depth of wisdom there;
	for you might just find your self within
	a binding spell of wizard's snares, 
	bereft of mind and soul: a spirit sprite of darkest fear!
