The Sly One…

*

… “Not possible,” cried Odin, “and there’s an end to it!”

*

A thin, reedy voice rose out of the continuing furore,

“To every idea, its merits.”

*

It was Loki, son of the Giant Farbaut, “Wouldn’t it be rather rash

to dismiss this proposition out of hand

when we stand in such dire need of a wall?”

*

The Gods and Goddess stilled their furore.

They all looked at the Sly One.

It was difficult to fathom that which moved

through the intricate mazes of his mind.

*

“We must at least give some thought to this proposition,”

continued Loki, quite reasonably, “we owe our guest that much.”

*

So the horseman was led from Gladsheim

while the Gods and Goddesses considered his bold proposition…
