Measure for measure? But, after my time in the Tower, I hope not to be re-sentenced. I'm sure a guilty verdict would be re-versed. After all, I've always tried to avoid a life of rhyme.

That would be the Tower of Babble, no doubt. But you can never tell what will happen once they get their clauses into you. In fact, there may be a run-on sentence, or perhaps another compound sentence.

Yes, the lady who used to keep us in perfumes refuses to come now her main source of income has gone to college. We appear to be the barred of Avon.

Better barred than barren, Edwin. At least, I imagine so -- your hall is now repainted, after all.
