    From Memento Homo Qui Pulvis Est, an unpublished Cycle play.

    GIANT (dressed as The Reaper, wielding a giant toothbrush instead of scythe)
    Feenum, Fienum, Foenum, Fief!
    Remember man, judgment and death!
    That varlet, villain, traitor, thief,
    I’ll pulverem to brush me teeth

    JACK THE GIANT-KILLER
    Thou unschooled lug, thou villein death,
    Thy conjugations foul thy breath
    Memento homo, qui pulvis est,
    Sed conversatio nostro in caelis est!
    Pulverisatio!
    Beats Giant with toothbrush and brushes his teeth

    GIANT
    Ah! Me leg, me back, me skully-pate!
    Me gaping maw and toothless fate!

    JACK THE GIANT-KILLER
    Gargarisatio!
    Pouring liquid

    GIANT
    I am learned, I am learned!

    JACK THE GIANT-KILLER
    A warning and a token, this,
    For those who doubt the King of Bliss.

    GIANT
    Beaten me! O, Death is dross,
    And grateful that thou hast not floss.

    Thanks for finally displaying your challenge coins! I’ve been wondering what the boxes look like and the collection. I even see the coin I gave you displayed.
