The hand that signed the paper felled a city;
Five sovereign fingers taxed the breath,
Doubled the globe of dead and halved a country;
These five kings did a king to death.
The mighty hand leads to a sloping shoulder,
The finger joints are cramped with chalk;
A goose’s quill has put an end to murder
That put an end to talk.
The hand that signed the treaty bred a fever,
And famine grew, and locusts came;
Great is the hand that holds dominion over
Man by a scribbled name.
The five kings count the dead but do not soften
The crusted wound nor pat the brow;
A hand rules pity as a hand rules heaven;
Hands have no tears to flow.
- Dylan Thomas
There is a new email signature I have been toying with and it is about time I showed it to the world – you will see it in this blog post.
If you, or your organisation, need email signatures then please get in contact. I can hand-code the signature in HTML and then upload it to your mail application of choice. Here is a JPEG image of my signature –
