    Default The Return of Mole

    The Badger drew himself up, took a firm grip of his stick with both paws, glanced round at his comrades, and cried—

    "The hour is come! Follow me!"

    And flung the door open wide.

    My!

    What a squealing and a squeaking and a screeching filled the air!

    Well might the terrified weasels dive under the tables and spring madly up at the windows! Well might the ferrets rush wildly for the fireplace and get hopelessly jammed in the chimney! Well might tables and chairs be upset, and glass and china be sent crashing on the floor, in the panic of that terrible moment when the four Heroes strode wrathfully into the room! The mighty Badger, his whiskers bristling, his great cudgel whistling through the air; Mole, black and grim, brandishing his stick and shouting his awful war-cry, "A Mole! A Mole!" Rat, desperate and determined, his belt bulging with weapons of every age and every variety; Toad, frenzied with excitement and injured pride, swollen to twice his ordinary size, leaping into the air and emitting Toad-whoops that chilled them to the marrow! "Toad he went a-pleasuring!" he yelled. "I'll pleasure 'em!" and he went straight for the Chief Weasel. They were but four in all, but to the panic-stricken weasels the hall seemed full of monstrous animals, grey, black, brown and yellow, whooping and flourishing enormous cudgels; and they broke and fled with squeals of terror and dismay, this way and that, through the windows, up the chimney, anywhere to get out of reach of those terrible sticks.

    The affair was soon over. Up and down, the whole length of the hall, strode the four Friends, whacking with their sticks at every head that showed itself; and in five minutes the room was cleared. Through the broken windows the shrieks of terrified weasels escaping across the lawn were borne faintly to their ears; on the floor lay prostrate some dozen or so of the enemy, on whom the Mole was busily engaged in fitting handcuffs. The Badger, resting from his labours, leant on his stick and wiped his honest brow.

    "Mole," he said, "you're the best of fellows!

    welcome back mole! wasn't the same without you around.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    So noble.

    But, dear Mole, times are gone for honest brows.

    My friend Badger, who lives in the Wild Wood, can be relied upon to help a fellow animal in need. And of course he would never think of himself as honest browed, but he is held in such respect that even our poetic Water Rat overlooks his occasional low brow solecisms.

    And as well as being solid an oak, Badger is also good company.

    Yes, it is cold outside the etribe of typology central. The greatest punishment any tribe, traditional or etribe, is ostracism, ie, casting the offender out of the tribe.

    To be cast out of an aboriginal tribe meant sure death. And even the Romans preferred death to exile.

    I weathered the emotional cold and now Spring has sprung, the plums have flowered, the wattle is dripping with gold, and the crab apples are in exuberant bloom, and the days are warm, as I return to the emotional warmth of typology central.

    Thank you. I am wondering, though, what was the good thing? And if I may ask, what are your first two languages?

    And I utterly and completely agree with you that intelligence is beauty.
