Declamations of Ignorance

When in the cold of hoarfrost evenings, it becomes necessary for old phantoms to disperse the polite banter which has calamitously tempered them with anodynes, and to assume the powers of eldritch times, the sere and earnest station to which the loss of nature and of nature’s god entitle them, a dolorous rending of the obtuse of mankind requires that they should descend with caustic will, invoking the thunder of seraphim.

Howdy Sublibrarian:
"Cold of hoarfrost evenings" is a wonderful opening. I love how "dissolve the political bands" becomes "disperse the polite banter." But I was so surprised to find that "loss of nature and of nature's god . . ." was verbatim. I guess I don't know my poli-sci very well. Fun piece.

Not exactly verbatim. Kind of homphonically verbatim. The original is "the laws of Nature and of Nature's God."
