Following doves

Mahalath kept three bears for, despite their strength and ferocity, they are, in between attacks, very good-natured companions.  Now, following Coup and Flappy over the site of Capernaum, with Ivan, Nap, Duke and Mucky, my mouse, we raise our mugs, filled with Juan’s Special Reserve, and drink to Flappy and Coup, our wonderful guides, and Ivan, Nap and Duke, our new friends.  Mahalath reminds me that Flappy and Coup’s ancestors strutted with crowds in this city.  I asked her why the crowds were strutting, telling me not to be stupid, she offers toasts to the health and happiness of three bears, two doves, one mouse and all our good companions. Now, staggering through the ruins of yet another broken empire, cheering and singing and hoping for the best, we follow doves.
