I had this morning a note from John M. Ford:
From a British documentary on the Great Train Robbery:Addendum: If you don’t read the comments, you’ll never understand how we got from this post to Elise’s finial reply:“The brakeman returned to the cab to find his engineer on the floor, his head bleeding. It was filled with men in balaklava masks that hid their faces.”Obviously an inside job.
Oh, dear. Now I have something dreadfully Hiawatha-like in my head. (With a balaklava mask on, no doubt.)Then returned the mighty brakeman To the cab in which he found himackj;kljfthpth ok, i’ll stop now.
Found the noble Hiawatha
Lying on the floor and bleeding
With a head all full of pastry
Sweet and flaky layered pastry
On the men with hidden faces
Tiny men with hidden faces
In the head of Hiawatha
