“Chronic remorse, as all the moralists are agreed, is a most undesirable sentiment." -Aldous Huxley

The foamborn Aphrodite, that old pantaloon Denis or perhaps a
handsome bier before gentlemen friends of man, called him and
disavowing him quickly restored order to the lethargy of destruction.
And what effect said he of the world in heaven but make you turn
their particular men back?

Gifts but conceptions; and powered in
Heaven – this Artificial Perfection – of the consequences of such as a smile;
Added of anything before His word, but one to another, the probability
of regeneration of the proverbs – and then not knowing the sovereignty in society –
when an acknowledgment such as yours – to be folded up by Christ hath it is offered –
appeases the appetite of the Civil Sovereign that was truly good lest has grown weak.

Men of this sight may be defended in both of these of many false instructions
of their decease. Several motions of these laws therefore make men in
continual hostility.

Throughout time you did never accept in the little understood
to be a restitution of any man to the variety of folly.

The author's comments:
I recently read Joyce's "Finnegan's Wake" and although I have an enormous respect for Joyce as a writer, I feel that the overall effect of "nonsense literature" is cheapened by a dependence on portmanteaus and other made up words. This is my attempt of a technical proof on concept that an overabundance of meaning can be just as debilitating to a reader's understanding of a piece as making up every third word. My intention was that in using real words the reader would have some intimation of what was being discussed, however be unable to analyze or internalize anything they had read.
