And admiring to our supershillelagh

why "to" not 'of'?

shillelagh: a blackthorn cudgel (especially Irish)

where the palmsweat on high is the mark of your manument.

sweaty hands may leave a darker band around a monument


Latin manus: hand
man you meant

All the toethpicks ever Eirenesians chewed on

Mohammed used toothpicks
pick one's toes
slang toothpick: shillelagh
Wellington Monument

Greek eirĂȘnĂȘ: peace
Polynesians, Indonesians

are chips chepped from that battery block.

phrase chip off the old block
U255+c: "Chips, picking chips off rocky thumbnail, chips." (Simon's fingernail-chipping as percussion)

chep = part of plough?

the Wellington Monument in Phoenix Park was erected on the site of the old Salute Battery (where a dozen cannons were mounted for discharge on days of public note)

battery block: an arrangement of timbers forming the foundation on which the mortar rests in an ore-crushing stamp-mill [cite]

If you were bowed and soild and letdown itself from the oner of the load

bought and sold

let down

why "itself"? (cf 'if you were Jesus himself'??)

obsolete oner: to burden (cf 'onus')
owner of the land
honour of the Lord

it was that paddyplanters might pack up plenty,

paddy: rice; rice-field
slang Paddy: Irishman
VI.B45.148: 'paddyplanters walk bowed'

planters: English settlers in 17thC Ireland (founders of plantations)

pack up and leave?
pick up plenty??
(if you suffered, it was so planters would X)
