Quandary Resolution 799
Star Chamber, glaucous, parlous, inexorable
In parlous state, with bated breath, he sat awaiting awful Death, whose glaucous mien (a cheesy green) all hope abating kept him waiting so deflated, hope abated (no, I've said that, you'll be sated); then inexorably summating, privily his guilt backdating, in a sentence (unextended!), briskly (least said, soonest mended), Council judged him quite non grata, wished him well as quartered martyr, then absolved themselves from blame before there came the next Star Chamber.
