As Abner takes orders over the phone, Lum reviews the poem that was discussed at the Golden Era Discussion Club meeting. It has an awful deep message… if he can ever find it. The pressing matter at hand though is Cedric’s rapidly approaching wedding. He is looking worse with worry as the big day approaches.
