“The Poet meets a skulking gaggle of suspicious figures. You observe the meeting from the shelter of a rat-ridden rubbish heap. He asks a great many excited questions. What are the latest outrages perpetrated by the Masters of the Bazaar? Are the heights of the Flit still safe from the Constables? What is the next target for the next bombing?

Now the only thing stoppin’ ’em is the Town Charter Amendment #5, which states: ‘no landholder may move, remove, or detonate any outhouse without a majority vote of the Town Citizens…’ Now one thing’s for sure: something’s gonna stink in Rossdorf, purty darn soon…..”
