Megan Stammers and Jeremy Forrest tasted a Liquor Never Brewed—now let us mourn for them, and for the loss of the freedom to live and love according to every one’s foolish heart…..

Pray for Megan Stammers and Jeremy Forrest—this time last year they were young, stupid, and happily falling in love—now their lives are ruined in the names of protecting them “Why did no one stop the love?”  read one headline….  Why did no one stop them?  Because it is unnatural and evil to do so.  Because rivers flow best and nourish the waters of the lakes and seas when they are allowed to flow freely and uncontaminated.  Love, like water, can only flourish un-dammed, unpolluted by the artificial additives that modern society inevitably adds to poison and kill every (once pure) lake and river from Baikal to the Blue Nile, from the Mersey to the Mississippi, and yet, as one headline trumpeted the news as though it were a truly amazing thing “Megan Stammers was born in Croydon.”  Oh yes, that’s news worth reporting, a cute redhead girl was born in Croydon.  Well, with brown immigration being what it is, soon the descendants of the celts like Megan will indeed by rare if not extinct in England.  To the memory of the blissful love and stupid youthful happiness of Megan Stammers and Jeremy Forrest, I dedicate this poem by Emily Dickinson, “I TASTE A LIQUOR NEVER BREWED.”

I taste a liquor never brewed —
From Tankards scooped in Pearl —
Not all the Vats upon the Rhine
Yield such an Alcohol!

Inebriate of Air — am I —
And Debauchee of Dew —
Reeling — thro endless summer days —
From inns of Molten Blue —

When “Landlords” turn the drunken Bee
Out of the Foxglove’s door —
When Butterflies — renounce their “drams” —
I shall but drink the more!

Till Seraphs swing their snowy Hats —
And Saints — to windows run —
To see the little Tippler
Leaning against the — Sun —
