The authorities are working round the clock to decipher this desperate message.

H ave just been captured by geese. They will 
O verfeed me to death if pate de fois gras is 
N ot banned immediately. Rescue, I'm told, is impossible. They

H ere we sit
O n the edge of a cliff, caged like canaries -
N othing else to do, when the 
K illers come creeping, but sing out danger.
