    Here's one thing - you see
    This bond of yours gives you here no jot of blood!
    - The words are 'A pound of flesh, '- that's clear as mud -
    Slice away, then, old fellow - but mind! - if you spill
    One drop of his claret that's not in your bill,
    I'll hang you, like Haman? - By Jingo I will! ' this is so filled with emotion more than the real Merchant of Venice.... thank you. tony
