    Correct EP. It was your quotation in an earlier post that prompted the conundrum.

    Also Eliot nicknamed Pound Old Possum so link to Cats and the other ALW of 'musical' notoriety.

    Fair enough, I have said in other forum threads that I should have looked into Ezra's background a bit more before using his name, he was a racist, fascist anti-sematist, KKK sympathiser, non of which (I hope) anyone has ever labelled me. I'm not sure about anti-religious though so I still dont get the original "Ezra's Mate" reference

    Ah I get that referrence I originally thought ALW was the airport code for Walla Walla, Washington USA :)

    I took it to mean T.S.Eliot. They have been described the "Odd Couple" of poetry.

    Ezra's mate = TS Eliot. The "all shall be well" bit is from Eliot's Little Gidding. He in turn was quoting Julian of Norwich ( who wasn't a bloke after all! )

    Bloody Poetry!
