Quandary Resolution 4877
debark, omnishambles, dudgeon, de profundis

The dictator was in dark dudgeon, his howling hubris debarked by his defeat; the general, reluctant director, not designer, of the omnishambles defense, stood mute; memories of the battlefield haunted him, and then, one image welling up, a gruesome barely recognizable human torso, the unmarred angelic face of a boy-no-more attached; de profundis, tears once more filled the salted gullies of his cragged face.
