The Book of Covidicus, Chapter 10: tiers, idle tiers
Continued from Chapter 9 1. After one month, Bo-sis released the children of Bri-tain from their lockdown. 2. But the plague continued to rage. In the lands where many people dwelt, there was sickness, while in the remote deserts the hermits rejoiced in their good health. 3. Worse than this, in the hospitals there were many sick people, while in the taverns there were very few. 4. Thus the advisers of Bo-sis said unto him, "The solution is plain. Empty the great cities, and drive the people into the wilderness. Close the hospitals, and send the people into the taverns." 5. However, Bo-sis decided on a different plan, and once more he told the people: "I have nothing to offer ye except blood, sweat and tiers." Continued in Chapter 11.
