Pious Poetry Precedes Pietry in ‘mania’s Melton Mowbray

One line’s text disappears
when I click delete
and the next seems to jump
to a rhythmic beat
joining other words in ver… tical… dict
poetic justice complete.

Poetry Explanation before Cheesy Temptation

Hi, it’s Greenygrey, with the latest episode of Grey’s greatest solo adventure: Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google MapsI just deleted some text listening to Pete Tong‘s Essential Selection Miami Special, and the poetic words above seemed to jump into my mind and dance around.

I’ve got rid of them now, so here’s the next episode, which sees the quackers quartet reach Tasmania‘s Melton Mowbray, which reminded Grey of the town of the same name in Blighty.

61.  BEYOND THE LAND OF CHEESE, WOLFRAM IS KING 

We thanked the horses for the lift, and raced north. I didn’t know it at the time, but Hobart turned out to be the most southerly point of my Ozyssey.

Melton Mowbray is Cheesy Delicious

We reached Melton Mowbray in time for dinner/supper, and saw a sign advertising The Scrumptioust Salubrious Surprise Supper Pie in South Oz. We agreed it looked too good to miss, so we called into the food emporium advertising it.

The surprise turned out to be that there was only cheese included in the pie. It was still delicious, but we couldn’t help thinking the advertising had been somewhat cheesy.

Wolfram powder

King Wolfram is a Grey Tonic 

The dust sandy path took on a greyish appearance after Melton Mowbray. Angry told us it was because Wolfram was king here.

I thought it must be nonsense, and was shocked that something grey and wolfish could be king. Shock later turned to flabbergastation when I saw a piece of wolfram. Not only was it grey, but it also looked greeny in sunlight.

Notes 

The Melton Mowbray in England is famous for food.
Central Tasmania has many wolfram (tungsten) mines.
