Quandary Resolution 4673
suborn, popliteal, kiln, ingress

My walls made fast, my wells dug deep, my kilns turned to baking bread, in the world abroad, the highwaymen are relentless, the plague is rampant, hunger is rife; the children outside my keep, all but the popliteal of their knees stained verdant from their supplication, the men willing to be suborned to any purpose for ingress, the women too, too willing to do what women have always done to feed their young: all is madness, all is sadness, the darkness had descended.
