    Out From Under The Eye

    Alone in his sparsely furnished tower, Skaros stood and glared out over the countryside; would any observer dare to be spying upon the Spymaster at this moment, they would no doubt describe his mood as “incandescent” before quickly escaping to less unpleasant company. Upon his desk, where he meticulously recorded the lives of the people, lay an obviously scrumpled piece of doggerel;

    ‘a Songbook
    by …’

    But it wasn’t signed. At the recollection of this, Skaros suddenly threw up his arms and cursed; “They expect the state to always act openly, but take the liberty of slandering anonymously as they wish! This they call Honesty! Pah!” If you could somehow smooth out the paper without him noticing, you’d read the lines that had so offended the man…

    ‘Sweet Molly was taking a bath when she heard a sound
    A man at the window looking in, was having a look around
    It’s Skaros the Peepin’ Tom who has an eye on us
    It’s Skaros the sneakin’ Worm satisfying his lust

    Busty Ann was changing her clothes when she felt a touch
    It was a man feeling her up and that was a bit too much
    It’s Skaros the Peepin’ Tom who has an eye on us
    It’s Skaros the sneakin’ Worm satisfying his lust

    A bunch of girls were getting ready for a naked swim
    When they beheld a man hiding, leering with a broad grin
    It’s Skaros the Peepin’ Tom who has an eye on us
    It’s Skaros the sneakin’ Worm satisfying his lust

    Drunken Tom nursing an ale was having his last one
    When he returned from a piss he noticed that his ale was gone
    It’s Skaros the Peepin’ Tom who has an eye on us
    It’s Skaros the sneakin’ Worm satisfying his lust

    A lovers couple was gettin’ busy in a boat
    And on the shore a man was busy taking notes
    It’s Skaros the Peepin’ Tom who has an eye on us
    It’s Skaros the sneakin’ Worm satisfying his lust’

    “It doesn’t even scan!” roared Skaros, “And it’s repetitive and devoid of literary merit! Do they really think the high and mighty of this realm are interested in their sordid little couplings?!” At this he spun from the window and grabbed the tatty paper, rolling it into a ball for perhaps the 10th time, before remembering even this rubbish might lead to a criminal, and so attempting to straighten it out for the 10th time in turn, ready to be filed away later.

    “Well” he thought, “if the people of the realm do not understand yet the need for an intelligence agency, let us stand back and see how they handle events without one.” Glancing at the calendar upon the wall, a smile only a hair’s breadth from a sneer came to his face; Information had revealed that rotten Bladderstick planned to attack those turbulent Governors who despised him so much. Had they not asked him to not interfere to the King directly? Well then, he would not! Let this be the month where the Governors do all the work…
