Chick-chickety Check Yourself Before You Reck Yourself, Cos' I'm Bad For Your Health, I Come Real Stealth...

Please release I and I from these ties that bind. I have pleaded with the lawmakers and the lawshakers for the freedom to walk these streets without these chains on me feets but all to no avail. Break the bond tht leaves me bound to suffer in the space between tranquility and suff'rin. Oh mighty Leviathan, make your decision soon 'cos my feet are blistered and I am feeling tired and weary and just want to kick back with mi roast fish and corn bread but for a few days until I and I must give sermon atop Mount Grace.

Peaceful decision maker, now is the time for jurisprudence, wisdom and forthright forgiveness. I and I shall not be offend. I and I shall with open arms welcome back his Eminence and his Holiness and his Graciousness with plenty'a sweetmeats.
