Your Excellency,
Brava! Bravissima! Well done and well writ. Never has Strykar taken such 
a hit. Surely the lightest of blows to lay us all low with laughter. Your
wit is truly remarkable. Are you sure you're not a Duchess to display such 
Grace? I prithee, lend us the tune to which it is written that it may be 
performed throughout the land by Atlantia's bards. Better yet, come to the 
Storvik Performer's Revel this Saturn's Day at Caer Bear, there to perform 
it yourself.
     To Corun of a thousand praises,
     Thank you for the invitation, albeit belatedly received (server 
     problems at this end).  
     Sadly I am not a tune-smith and have not sung in public since several 
     sordid years of Gilbert and Sullivan in college.  (The less said about 
     that, the better).
     I invite any gentle of true talent who wishes to either add verses to 
     "Strykar's Hair" or invent a tune for it, to do so.  My only request 
     is that it be pitched so that I (a second alto) can sing it if I ever 
     work up the courage to do so before my betters.
     As for being a Duchess, being a Countess is more fun.  Duchesses are 
     expected to be Serious Role Models and Exemplars of Good Behavior at 
     All Times.  Countesses (with exception of my Lady Mother, the Tossed) 
     get to kick up their heels more.
