  • I have found your program really helpful. It is so easy to understand. It makes far more sense than school teachers ever did. I desperately need a 'C' grade and with your package, I am bang on this pass rate. With a bit more revision, it will be a comfortable pass. Thanks Jeevan! ♥♥♥ https://bit.ly/33W8jmf

  9. 9. The Dragon of Death The Kraken Below the thunders of the upper deep; Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea, His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee About his shadowy sides: above him swell Huge sponges of millennial growth and height; And far away into the sickly light, From many a wondrous grot and secret cell Unnumbered and enormous polypi Winnow with giant arms the slumbering green. There hath he lain for ages and will lie Battening upon huge sea- worms in his sleep, Until the latter fire shall heat the deep; Then once by man and angels to be seen, In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die. Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809-1892) In a faraway, faraway forest Lies a treasure of infinite worth. But guarding it closely forever Looms a being as old as the earth. Its body’s as big as a boulder, And armored with shimmering scales. Even the mountain tops tremble when It thrashes it’s seven great tails. Its eyes tell a story of terror, They gleam with an angry red flame As it timelessly watches its riches. And the Dragon of Death is it’s name. Its teeth are far sharper than daggers. It can tear hardest metal to shreds.
