Religious Persecution. Mainly threats thereof and so forth.
In Our World. Legends Tell Tales, that so then
Drove. In Ships and over Seas, those Pilgrims
and Puritans. To
A New Land. Where Others already Lived too. To
Wherebys Sailing… and Living
New World, Ol’ Troubles
to be Explored. Ways, Means,
mixed therein in deed. Herein indeed
Our Modern Americans, Free or not,
begin Their Modern Dream.
The Pilgrims, Puritans + co.
like any Migrating invasive Force/Group,
needed Land. Lots.
Ignoring the Americas Traditional Laws, They
This enabled wholesale Thefts, Takeovers,
of Many Areas. Much Land. From Others.
began persecuting as well. Well as
Others and each Other. Also.
In The Real… Lil’ had really
Puritans Not. That.
Religion has a tendency to bring People Together. And.
To pit One against The Other. Ripping Thems apart.
Such was the State of Societal Things.
16th Century, England.
King Henry V111 had decided to split.
From the Catholics.
A protesting Protestant. To Thems. Catholics.
These Puritannical Protestants protested…
made a big song and dance…
about People’s Rights. Theirs.
Carping ons and ons.
‘Bout being Independent,
Separate From Politics…
When it suited… Thems.
NowaDays… The Modern Nomen/Term
would be… perhaps…
Other Pilgrims did Other Things.
Putting Ups that and those MayPoles.
Can be Hard Works.
As Aboves Image Shows
(… A Mod. Repo. In Traditional Gear…).
Thomas Morton thought big.
25 Metres Big.
MayPole. Pine Wood. Pole.
Thomas Morton was a Pilgrim.
Thomas Morton was NOT a Puritan.
Other Things as well. Well as
Pole Dancing. Seeing this,
The Puritans protested some mores. ‘Bout
That. MayPoles erection, continual
merriment on the Mount. Swallowing
and That Dancing too. To
whit and which Thomas + co…
Partied Ons. Mores.
Hard er. Earlier
Thomas Morton, English Lawyer and Trader.
Sailed to Massachusetts with 30 Others.
Set Ups a Colony and Trading Post.
North of Plymouth. A Lil’.
(… Mount Wollaston…
Present Day Nomen: Quincy…)
Befriends many Settlers and Native American Indians.
Oft publicly mocked the pretentious Puritans. A lot.
Sarcastic too. To and which. Puritans outpoured
pure Emotions. Words as well. Well as
Their Puritan’s Magistrate and Colony’s Military Advisor,
both got plainly pithy also. Also both,
Pithed Offs ’bouts lil’ Thomas.
Morton. His Ways. Wayward
and mores. More and so ever,
even called Him The Pagan.
That Place of Thomas. Morton.
‘Cos of the Maypole erection, Dancing arounds
Thomas liked Beer too. To
to such as the William Bradford’s
History Of The Plymouth Plantation;..
went something like this, by including:
“… Ye beastly practices of Ye mad Bacchanalians…”
Which… apart from being beastly…
sound like a nice Party. Anyways, ‘cos
as Bacchanalia practiced by Thomas + co.
included… Girls. At The Party.
To Dance with.
And Beer. Lots too. To
Get Drunk… Party ons. So Forth. Forthrightly
a Party at Tom’s Place… meant… PAARTYYYYY…
though rather wrongly. The Pithed Offs Ones.
Who were Two. Puritannicals.
The strait-laced Magistrate John Endecott
and that stiff-necked stand-off-ish
Military Master Capt. Myles Standish.
Got more. Pithed Offs.
With Lil’ Party Hard, Thomas.
They did not get an Invite. Invitations
were thus and so quickly
arranged. By Them Puritans.
To Their Army.
Led by Standish. Miles.
To head a few miles
towards Thomas and His MerryMount.
Party. Barrel And Pole.
Hows to Breaks Ups
Party Times, Places…
was a Plan, these Party-Pooping
Puritans began. Then. Then
and forthwith. They Attacked.
At MerryMount. With The MayPole. Erect.
With rights and lefts.
With Rights, Left Outs.
With Their Army.
Many Arm ies, Legs, Muskets.
Puritans vs Pagans.
‘Cept… Alls the Pagans… were dead-
drunk. Drunk enough they had. Beer
in deed. Indeed,..
Party ons they were. To into Partying
to purely respond. To That. Army. There. Then
The Party Poopers Puritans rejoiced.
Arm ies waved Alls abouts.
No longer pithed off even though
Their Guns were not let off…
Puritans chained Pilgrim Thomas. Morton.
With them. Chains.
Took Him. Off. The Dance Floor.
Labelled Him a Pagan.
Took aways His Glass of Beer. Barrel
as well. Well as. Then,
Lifted His Hand off His Girl-
Friend. Cut His erect MayPole. Back
To size. Small
dowels i guess that… would…
Be now. Then.
Then sent Hims back. To England.
Shipped outs. Still chained. Ups.
His Pole Party may and is
Over. Back then. Then Over
and Now. Feel Mores Than Free.
Your Tales Joyous, Sad.
Tall, so True.
Of Girls, Boys.
Of Party Times, Places.
That just went so. Wrong.
Ways and Means.
Lost Control in
Our World. Legends. Of That.
Thomas Morton so continued
to Party Ons…

By Writing. Lots. Writing. Once
He got Those maniacal
puritanical Chains. Off.
