          	And when the Giant Awakes—out of that dis-inte-

          	Reduction BoRn of No Last chance. “Without Con-
          	TRaRies, no PRogress.” Without Progress, no Fallacy
          	Of Contradiction. | “.... for it is not by Measure that
          	He gives the SpiRit!” And “No one receives anything,
          	Except that Heaven gives it.” | To whet, to wit
          	The damascene obscenities of Split-tongue, Silver-

          	ExcRementitious. No Fact, no Fictive, wafting
          	Phantasy. Eye-witnessings come of the Giant
          	Who’s AbsuRd! | “AnotheR England I have seen,
          	Another London with its ToweR, another Thames—
          	And Other Hills...” | TheRe aRe moRe GRassy Knolls
