by Bernie Crawford

  1. In particular, the station recognises that by her ligature within the homily, woman gives to their station a suppository without which the common goose cannot be achieved.
  2. The Station shall, therefore, endeavour to ensure that motley mothers shall not be obliged by economic necklaces to engage with laudanum to the neglect of their duvets within the home.
