Not so long ago…
Out in an English Shaw not so far away…
Episode II: Waterboarding Madness
as you know, the Star Wars movies start out like this. So I figured I would mimic them. For your amusement. I do not know if you are familiar with Watership Down? Well in the beginning of that world, the “Frith” is The deity who made the Watership Down world and I think that because it rhymes with Sith. This will not be anything about that.
The following spoof story is dedicated to Richard Adams, who is in English war hero who has put into Watership Down his feelings about humanity, what we are capable of both good and bad, and even the prospect of spiritual internal life. Afterlife too. He says that his stories scared his daughters… Why yes, anytime fuzzy-wuzzy bunnies are calling each other and it’s bloody the author may be a sicko psycho… If I were to judge that, I would be even more so… To you Richard, pleasantly surprised you are still kicking, in your nineties.
If anybody wishes to write and thank Richard for writing Watership Down, his address is:

Watership Down: revenge of the Frith
Even now as I write I can tell the computer world is jealous of the old world where we wrote on the paper with pin or with typewriter. I wrote revenge of the Frith… spell correct put fridge… anathema!!
From up above in the sky we see
A flock of geese in fashion military
their wings are painted like Indians do
The geese form a motley crew
In they fly to England, swift
from Goose-lama-bad far away
this is to be an unusual day
they claim to be sent by the Frith!
On the backs of the geese smart rodents steering,
anti-aircraft see them mice with turbans appearing
rabbits sound the alarm but it is too late
they head for America
it is hard to say who is in charge
The geese used to fly or the mice not so large
war is declared in the United States
dogs and cats Are sent to the East without much debate
The Fuzzlim mice and the suicidal geese
Declare a holy war at Monticello
They claim they have the blessing of Frith
The Canada geese, usually quiet, denounce them from their headquarters in Quackbeck
Wars went on in the desert places
Tyrants for massive power in that hour
I am skipping ahead past details and faces
To a war to end all wars…”
And you can read about it. I will write about it on syntaxsinner.Wordpress.com + Watership Down + Whitehorse
